VANILLA SPONGE CAKE (Eggless)



INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 Cup All purpose Flour
1 Cup Thick curd (I used labneh)
3/4 Cup Granulated sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Oil
1 1/2  Vanilla Essence


METHOD

1.Grease and flour a 8' pan.Preheat the oven to 200 degree C.Sieve flour and keep aside.

2.Cream curd and sugar together at medium speed or just whisk away until the sugar's completely dissolved in the curd.


 3.Add baking powder and baking soda. Mix well with a balloon whisk. Leave aside for around 5min till bubbles start appearing.


4. As soon as the bubbles appear or you feel like the mixture has sort of doubled up,add oil and vanilla essence. Mix well until combined.


5. Add flour in 4 portions and fold in using a wooden spoon or spatula. Pour the batter into the prepared and smooth it out with a spatula. Pop it into your preheated oven and bake at 200 degree C for 10 mintues,then reduce the temperature to 180 degree C.


6.Bake for 30-35 min or till the top turns golden and toothpick test comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 min and then transfer to cooling rack.

To get really neat and firm slices, wait for atleast 3-4 hours. I just sprinkled powdered sugar on top, but if you want to frost the cake, it is advisable to refrigerate overnight.

P.S.: I never expected an eggless cake to turn out so soft and yummy,the texture was perfect.
