sponge cake recipe | eggless sponge cake | plain cake recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. there are myriad cake recipes out in the market made with different frosting and flavour. but most of the cake is made with the same cake batter with the same ingredients with variously flavoured frosting. the basic or plain cake is known as sponge cake which has the same characteristics of sponge with look and softness.

i had shared quite a few cake recipes till now but i was getting a lot of requests for a simple and plain sponge cake recipe. hence i thought of sharing this multi-purpose plain cake recipe which can be used for myriad flavours. as matter of fact, i was planning to share this recipe in a cooker and not with a conventional oven. but at the last moment decided to go with traditional recipe and delayed the cooker sponge cake. having said that, i have already posted a chocolate flavoured cooker cake and can be referred on how to use the cooker to bake the cake. moreover, once the cake is ready, it can be used for any flavoured frosting of your choice if you need to.

anyway, some tips and suggestions for a perfect and soft eggless sponge cake recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using the exact amount of proportion for each ingredient specified in the recipe card. note that each ingredient with the supplied proportion is critical for the best result. secondly, the key ingredient for a soft and spongy cake is air and hence beat the batter as much as possible to incorporate the air bubbles. you can use a cut and fold method using a spatula or hand blender for the same. lastly, in this recipe post, i have used plain flour or maida and few may have a concern regarding it. alternatively, you can also use wheat flour to make the same recipe.

finally, i request you to visit my other eggless cakes recipes collection with this post of sponge cake recipe. it includes recipes like black forest cake, vanilla cake, carrot cake, walnut and dates cake, coconut cake, wheat cake, cooker cake and chocolate cake. further, i also request you to check my other related and popular recipes collection like,
