How to bake a eggless cake Gallery

Low fat eggless cake


Maida / All Purpose flour - 1 and 1/2 cups (225 gms)
Vanilla flavoured Custard Powder or Cornflour - 3/4 cup (100 gms)
Baking powder - 1&1/4 tsp
Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup (200 gms)
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp (only if you are using cornflour else skip it)
Butter - 2 tbsp
Milk - 1 and 1/2 cups (375 ml)

Mix until a creamy batter shown below is formed. 
Then grease a baking pan(I used a 4X4 inch cake pan) with a butter paper and pour the batter into it. 
Preheat the oven to 180 deg C for 10mins and bake the cake for 35-40mins.
Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cake before you switch off.
Cool it completely for atleast 20mins then cut into pieces. 
I halved the orginal recipe and choose a smaller pan accordingly.

As I wanted a low fat version I used demerara sugar so my cake was a little brown in color.You can use normal sugar too.
First add milk in a bowl; add butter and mix well.
Next add vanilla essence and mix again with a whisk.
Then add the sugar, mix till it completely dissolves. 
Alternatively you can powder the sugar and then add so that it dissolves quickly. 
Sieve maida, custard powder and baking powder then add them to the milk butter mixture.
Sieving is always done to avoid any dust particles and also to ensure even spread of the baking powder.
