  7. I never made eggless cake and this one looks so moist. I always feel scared that eggless cake would not rise enough! And I also see that you need no extra special ingredient for this cake! This looks very promising.

  12. Just wanted to thank you for this absolutely wonderful recipe.

    I used this recipe to bake a double layer cake for my daughters birthday as well as some cupcakes as gifts for her friends.

    everyone loved the cakes and I had so many compliments on how tasty the sponge was. Most people couldn't believe that I hadn't used any eggs considering how well the cake rose and how moist the sponge was.

    Its definitely one of the easiest recipes I have used and worked exactly as promised!

  16. I'm assuming the sugar and flour you used is vegan friendly? I'm going vegan for a month and I can't wait to make this!

  20. Hi... :)

    I was wondering would be alright to use Brown Sugar Instead of Granulated Sugar for this Cake. BTW... this Cake Looks Incredible and I intend to give it a go. Pls do advise me on the sugar. :D

  23. Do you think this cake would stand up to being cut into a shape for a specialty birthday cake?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it should work fine...but I haven't tried it yet!!
      If you wish to give it a try ,do refrigerate the cake for an hour or so ,,or until it is a bit firm,so that you can shape the cake easily,without breaking it...
      Do let me know ..okie!!
      Happy cooking...

  24. Hi,

    Planning to use whole wheat instead of all purpose flour....please tell that quantity of oil and soda needs to be kept same and whether the cake will rise and be equally moist?

    Thnx

    1. Hello!! Thank you for visiting kurryleaves...
      Yes !!you can use whole wheat flour for the cake(the one in the pic is a whole wheat flour cake),the rest of the ingredients are the same as in the above recipe.Make sure that u do not over mix the batter.( mix GENTLY,just until combined).
      The whole wheat flour cake did have a nice texture and was moist too.( if you use all purpose flour ,the texture of the cake will be slightly different and a bit more moist)
      Happy cooking

      Yes!you can try many variations with this recipe... you can actually replace the cocoa powder with all purpose flour if you want to try a different flvr cake.Keep all other ingredients the same.you can also replace water with milk or even orange juice....Add a bit of lemon or orange zest,if desired...the options are endless..

  28. Thank you so much for the recipe. I do not bake regularly. Mainly because it never comes out good. But I have tried 3 or 4 Chocolate cake recipes. But this is the best of all. We really loved the cake.

  30. great recipe! I always hesitate to bake any kind of cake as i am not a good baker and i'm in love with vegan cakes rather than ordinary ones with eggs and butter. However, I made this vegan cake with your recipe and it turned out very good except for being a bit plain as I did not add much honey. But i would serve it with banana sauce so no problems. Thank you for sharing! I will try other recipes of yours!

  31. Thanks for the recipe, I added homemade apricot jam in the middle and a few walnuts into the dough and it's yummy! It's interesting to try to bake something vegan :))
