Eggless n Butterless Lemon Sponge Cake

Thursday, October 10, 2013

   Dear readers, followers, visitors and my fellow bloggers, today I want to share an awesome online service I have recently experienced. Few days back, I was so much worn out from different chores that cooking was the last thing I could do and even was unable to go out for dinner. So thought of ordering some food online. While searching for some nearby restaurants, I bumped
into this online food ordering site, Foodpanda. I was quite happy of the fact that the site was quite interesting and user-friendly. I explored the total site immediately and found that their service is not only available in India but also in all major cities all over the World. In India, they have their service in 14 major cities. Big cities are covered in areas and then in subareas. So don't be surprise like me when you find your local restaurant in their list of restaurants. You can explore all restaurant's menu card online even when restaurants are not open and pre-order, setting up your desired time. No need to pay them online if you don't want, they have cash on delivery option also available. What else do you want? I immediately ordered food from my nearby restaurant online, which before I ordered by phone and the food was delivered on time as promised. Their service is quite prompt and very systematic in compare to many other online food ordering sites. I am very happy that I have bumped into this site. Therefore, I am sharing my experience with you all and I'll recommend everyone to try this service once. Check out their website

  Let's move on my today's post, a basic sponge cake recipe for those who are beginners in baking.

 
  I have posted many cake recipes before,[check out my Baked Goodies page for all the recipes] but never posted this basic sponge cake recipe. So thought of posting this one today. This cake can be base for any kind of cake and you can add any flavours of your choice. This recipe contains no butter and no egg, totally vegetarian and healthy. I have tried this recipe from my fellow blogger "Veena's Curry World". I have flavoured it with lemon and made Lemon Sponge cake.This is totally a keeper recipe and thanks Veena for sharing this healthy recipe with us.
 

You Need :
All Purpose Flour- 1 1/2 cup
Sugar-1 cup
Curd-1 cup
Vegetable Oil-1/2 cup
Baking Powder-1 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda-1/2tsp
Lemon Essence-1 tsp
Lemon peel(grated) :1/2 tsp.
Yellow Food color(optional) : 2-3 drops

How To :
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Grease the baking try with vegetable oil or butter and set aside. 
  • In a bowl add curd and beat well till the curd becomes very smooth without lumps. Then add sugar to this and mix well till the sugar dissolves. Now add baking powder and baking soda. Mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes you'll notice some bubbles on the top. To this add oil and lemon essence. Keep whisking until everithing is mixed well for 2 minutes. Then finally add all purpose flour to this mixture little at a time and fold until whole flour are used. Whisk the mixture until it looks smooth and creamy.
  • Now pour this mix to the baking tray and level the top. Tap the tray lightly on the counter get rid of the big air bubbles. Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, after 25 minutes insert a toothpick in the centre to check is it is done. If the toothpick comes out clean without any crumbs, then it is done. 
  • If you see the center is still moist, tehn bake for some more time.
  • Remove from the oven and keep aside to cool.
