Eggless Basic Vanilla Cake – Light & Airy – No Condensed Milk

This Egg free cake comes out light and airy. I used to make egg free cake with Condensed milk & Butter but the only problem I faced every time I made the cake was, once the cake is refrigerated, it got little hard, may be because of butter. So I started looking for other option and I tried this recipe with thick plain yogurt and oil. I was totally surprised with the end result, super moist, yet light and airy…exactly the way I wanted and did not get hard upon refrigeration.
You can bake the cake in pressure cooker if no oven available.


There are so many things to keep in mind when baking the cakes without eggs. For more stability, you can use Flax seeds meal as well. You can check out my article baking without eggs with the right kind egg substitute.
You can learn to make Egg Replace Powder at home by following my recipe. For stability of the cake Besan(Chickpea flour) can be used as well. For every 1 cup of plain flour, add 1 tbsp Besan.
