Perfect sponge cake for any celebration and its EGG-FREE!!!
I get a lot of requests for egg-free cakes because of food allergies, religious beliefs or vegetarian diets, so it is great to have a fool-proof eggless cake recipe up your sleeve. This one is the best EF sponge recipe I’ve found so far, it is full of flavour, light, it always cooks in even layers and it’s perfect for under fondant as well.
I often make this cake with 4 layers, but here it is pictured on a triple layer occasion. I made this one for my dad’s birthday where many family members, who don’t eat eggs, were attending. He particularly wanted a sponge cake because it brings back memories of his childhood. He often reflects back to his school days, after he’d moved to the big smoke, from his little country town, to live with his aunty whom, by all accounts, spoilt him rotten! Every afternoon when he got home from school, his aunty would have a light, fluffy sponge cake, filled with jam and cream and a cup of tea waiting for him. What a life!!
So the challenge for me was to make a light, fluffly sponge cake without the magic ingredient… eggs! This is the cake I came up with and he really loved it. I went with the traditional jam and cream filling (to give him the full reminiscing experience) and then decorated with frangipanis, passion fruit, strawberries and blueberries to give it a summer feel, seeing his birthday falls in summer.
Here is the magic recipe!I hope you enjoyed reading my post and enjoyed the recipe. Let me know how yours turned out or ask me any questions regarding this post by commenting below. Please spread the love by sharing my blog post by using the icons below. Happy baking!!
