Top 10 Cake Recipes

top 10 cake recipes. Cakes are fun. Full stop! There is no arguing with this statement. Cakes are part-and-parcel of any celebration – that’s something we all know. But, the best part about cakes is that they can transform even an ordinary day into a special one. Just the aroma of cake baking in the oven is enough to perk up the mood of each person in that house, and to tickle the curiosity of the neighbours too. Just think about it – how many of us can resist the temptation of crossing a bakery without stepping in and buying something to munch, particularly the ever-popular and totally irresistible Black forest pastry! Well, imagine how much more charming it would be if the same experience came home, into your own kitchen.

Eggless cakes are a delight to bake and a delight to bite into. The heavenly feeling of a soft and spongy Eggless Sponge Cake laced with Homemade Chocolate Sauce, melting in your mouth. Or, the joy of baking an Eggless Marble Cake with your friends and enjoying it warm, with a cup of hot tea. A gooey, fudgy Sizzling Brownie with Rich Vanilla Ice-Cream would be the perfect end to a wonderful meal, while something innovative like the Eggless Semolina and Coconut Cake would be perfect to serve your guests during Christmas time.

If all the buzz about baking and the addictive aroma wafting out of the oven has made your kids eager to bake too, do not discourage them. Let them bake a simple Biscuit Cake. Allow them to get messy and naughty in the kitchen, so they enjoy the experience and want to keep experimenting. To enjoy cooking is as important as appreciating good food. In fact, it is a life skill, which will keep them company at all times – good and bad!

Once you get the hang of baking, you can innovate and come up with endless delicacies, ranging from the Chocolate Banana Cake to the Pineapple Sponge Cake. Start with a sponge, keep developing upon it, and you will end up with a masterpiece!

This sponge cake is just what it should be – perfectly spongy! With the right level of sweetness, a pleasing flavour and melt-in-the-mouth softness, this versatile sponge cake is the ultimate go-to dessert for vegetarians. The proper mix of baking soda and baking powder gives this cake a nice sponginess and rise despite not using eggs. Fondly called the Vegetarian Sponge Cake, this eggless sponge cake can be enjoyed plain or with decorative icings like Mocha Glaze Icing or Orange Butter Icing. The same recipe also lends itself to making other cakes like Pineapple Cake. Note that for this recipe we do not have to add any extra sugar because we are using condensed milk, which gives a rich flavour and texture. You can store this yummy cake in an airtight container at room temperature for a day, or in the fridge for 4-5 days. However, it is best enjoyed fresh and warm when the aroma is at the peak. Enjoy how to make Eggless Sponge Cake recipe with detailed step by step photos below.

This Biscuit Cake is a head-turner, with its fabulously good looks. But that’s not all. Its intensely chocolaty flavour, balanced by the salty crispness of digestive biscuits, is a heavenly experience that will delight your senses. The Biscuit Cake is quite easy to make, as it is quickly prepared by mixing a creamy chocolate mixture into broken biscuits, and refrigerating it to set. However, the outcome is so delightful that nobody will believe it was so easy to make!
Add some fun to an empty day, with these delectable Chocolate Brownies. Cooked in an oven, these eggless brownies have the best possible texture and the most intense flavour, thanks to the effective combination of dark chocolate and condensed milk. Butter and curds together soften the brownies, replacing eggs in this recipe. These brownies can be served plain, laced with chocolate sauce, or topped with ice-cream.

The fruity sweetness of bananas and the intoxicating bitterness of cocoa are a made-for-each-other combination, especially when you team them up to make a dessert such as this! This irresistible Chocolate Banana Cake has an intense flavour of chocolate, which is further deepened by the addition of brown sugar. Ideal proportions of all other ingredients including flour, condensed milk, butter and cream result in a perfectly spongy texture too. Enjoy this cake warm with a cup of tea, or top it with a scoop of ice-cream and serve it for dessert!

marble cake recipe | eggless marble cake | veg marble cake | easy marble cake | with 22 amazing images. The Eggless Marble Cake is a lusciously spongy cake with the rich and delicious aroma of condensed milk and vanilla, laced with portions of intense dark chocolate cake. It is called Marble Cake because it appears like marble. The cake is soft and is flavourful, simple though tasty. Hosting a High Tea Party, then Eggless Marble Cake is a great accompaniment to your tea. You can make the cake 3 days in advance as it will stay fresh. Just cling wrap Eggless Marble Cake and store it in an airtight box. Once the Marble Cake is baked make sure to demould it after 5 minutes and place it on a rack or else it will have water droplets which will reduce the shelf life of the cake. Marble Cake can be warmed in the microwave and serve with a scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream. Eggless Marble Cake can also be coated with a layer of Chocolate Truffle Sauce, once it has cooled completely and then slice it to serve. Enjoy how to make Eggless Marble Cake recipe with detailed step by step photos and video below.

This delectably spongy cake dotted with chunks of canned pineapple is perfect to be decorated elaborately, to be served as such with tea, or with a topping of ice-cream for dessert. This Pineapple Sponge Cake derives part of its intense flavour from pineapple syrup and partly from condensed milk. You will find it richer, more colourful and tastier than plain sponges, which is what makes it fit to be served right out of the oven without any frills!

There is fun in the air, and nobody can resist a treat or two in the weeks leading up to Christmas! Here is yet another treat to enjoy, and share with your friends – to make the festival season even more special. This unique Eggless Semolina and Coconut Cake is made with rava instead of plain flour, which is usually the main ingredient in cakes. That gives this cake an enjoyably crumbly texture, which together with the flakiness of coconut makes the total effect mind-blowing. This recipe uses very little milk, so stick to the quantities mentioned, to get the batter consistency right.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect date cake recipe. Always bake date walnut cake in the middle rack. Pre-heat the oven for at least 5-10 minutes.
