vanilla cake recipevanilla cake recipe | butter cake recipe | eggless vanilla cake or plain cake with step by step photo and video recipe. typically butter cake or plain vanilla cake is prepared using egg white and then mixed with plain flour later to be baked. however this recipe does not contain any egg and is a eggless cake recipe. this cake recipe is ideal for ceremonial occasions, such as weddings and birthdays and can be frosted with either chocolate or vanilla frosting.

i have already shared the basic eggless sponge cake recipe in cooker, but this is the authentic eggless vanilla cake recipe in conventional oven. also i have used the combination of condensed milk and full fat milk in this recipe with no additional sugar for sweetness. the combination gives a moist and fluffy texture to the cake even with the absence of egg yolk. in addition the vanilla extract gives nice flavour to this cake and hence it is more often termed as simple basic vanilla cake. however it is also known with the other popular names like butter cake recipe or simple plain cake recipe.

butter cake recipefurthermore some important and critical tips and recommendations for perfect moist eggless vanilla cake or plain cake. firstly, the cake batter consistency is very critical and it has to be of dropping consistency. do not prepare a tight or thick batter consistency otherwise the cake may turn hard. secondly after adding the plain flour do not mix it with hand blender. i would recommend to use spatula with cut and fold method to mix both wet and dry ingredients. lastly, while baking if you feel your top layer is turning dark in colour, then immediately cover the plain cake with aluminium foil and continue the baking.

finally i would like to highlight my other eggless cakes recipes collection with this post of butter cake recipe. this mainly includes, black forest cake, chocolate cake, plum cake, cup cake, choco lava cake, rava cake, mug cake, banana bread and chocolate mug cake. in addition, do visit my other recipes collection like,

notes:

  • firstly, use warm milk and room temperature butter for perfect texture.
  • also add choco powder along with maida, check out eggless chocolate cake recipe.
  • furthermore, use oil instead of butter if you are preserving the cake and eating later. as butter hardens once refrigerated whereas oil doesn’t and keeps cake more moist.
  • also to bake in microwave convection mode pre heat and bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes. and to bake in cooker check out how to bake in cooker.
  • finally, add dry fruits / tutti frutti to make eggless vanilla cake more rich.
