I am always excited to try an eggless cake, but very often the results are disappointing. The first ever cake I tried was with condensed milk and I found it too sweet and dense and it just didn't appeal to my taste, the chocolate version wasn't so bad though.
There are several other egg substitutes that I have yet to bake with, especially want to try something with vinegar. This custard powder cake though is another story. I had seen it at Aparna's blog and have it bookmarked since ages and I don't know why I waited so long to try it.
The cake looked so good out of the oven we couldn't resist cutting into it immediately. Only after a couple of slices did I remember that I had to take pictures. This is definitely one of the best sponge cakes, it was so light you wouldn't think it was eggless!! I loved the taste (am a vanilla custard lover), the texture and just about everything. I baked it in a bundt and drizzled some chocolate sauce over it for some added yummmm!!
Eggless Custard Powder Snack Cake
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup vanilla flavored custard powder (I used Brown and Polson)
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
150 gm butter (very soft)
1 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350F/ 180C. Grease and flour an 8" round pan or a small bundt pan.
Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the vanilla, milk and butter and mix well until smooth.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake till done. My bundt took about 35 minutes. It will take longer in a round pan, so check at about 35 mins.
Cool on a wire rack completely before slicing.
