Eggless Sponge Cake

Prep Time: 5 min
Bake Time: 45 min
Bake Temp: 160 C
Makes: 1, 8 inch cake

1 1/4 cup All purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup Powdered sugar (adjust according to taste)
1 cup thick yogurt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
(1 cup is around 200 grams)


1. Preheat oven to 160C
2. Grease & Line your baking pan
3. Add powdered sugar to thick yogurt / curd.
4. Beat well to form a smooth mixture
5. Add to the yogurt, baking powder, baking soda & a pinch of salt
6. Beat the mixture well. You'll start seeing tiny bubbles all over the yogurt.
7. Let it rest for 5 minutes. You'll see even more bubbles! (Its a pretty sight! :D)
8. Meanwhile, sift your flour & cocoa twice.
9. Add oil and vanilla extract to the yogurt
10. Mix well
11. Add the flour mix 1 big spoon at a time while incorporating the flour into the yogurt mix
12. Keep doing until all the flour is in the yogurt mix. It shouldn't be too thin or too thick. (If too thin, add 1 tbsp of flour and if its too thick, add a few drops of milk or water)
13. Pour the batter in the prepared baking pan. (I poured in a 9 inch pan so got a flatter cake)
14. Cover with aluminum foil IF your cake tops generally burn B
15. Bake at 160 C for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean without leaving wet batter.
16. Invert, remove the parchment paper & let it cool completly before covering with frosting (if necessary).

Skip cocoa powder to have a simple vanilla sponge
