Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake with Condensed Milk and Cola ~ Egg Substitutes in Baking

>>  Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Next in the series is another Sponge Cake made with Condensed Milk and Aerated Cola. Making eggless cakes with condensed milk and aerated colas were my very first exposure to baking eggless. I have been making this cake since I was in college and it never fails.

And it wasn't a sponge cake that I make, it was always the Black Forest cake from Milkmaid. I used to go all the way by making the icing and all other frills that come with that cake. Everybody used to love that cake and though the final cake used to weigh about a kilo, it used to simply disappear within minutes of frosting.

When it is chocolate cake, you can use Pepsi or Coke. I have always used coke, though none at home prefer coke and always want pepsi. I have not till date tasted either of these. Infact only recently I tasted an aerated drink. And didn't like it much.

In today's recipe I have used lemon flavoured aerated cola, though I didn't taste the drink, kids loved the drink as well. The cake came out super soft and spongy. Just like the other Sponge Cake that I made with Apple Cider with condensed Milk, this uses Aerated cola with Condensed Milk. While in other recipe, the liquid is compensated with Milk, I have compensated with aerated water in today's recipe.

So on comparing the taste, the other sponge cake will be more richer as it as condensed milk plus milk. While today's recipe will be more milder and lighter as well. Also how much time you soften the butter matters to the final result. If the butter is just soft enough to get blended is right texture, else the cake will be more dense.

Another factor to remember in such batters when using creaming technique would be to use 75% dry ingredients in the first mix. This way the creamed butter would cover the flour right away and you will also avoid over mixing later.

This was yet another cake that my kids loved, dispite of it being Vanilla.

Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake with Condensed Milk and Aerated Cola

Ingredients Needed

All purpose Flour - 1 cup
Butter - 1/4 cup
Condensed Milk - 200 gm / 1/2 tin
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Cooking Soda 1/2 tsp

How to make Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake 

Keep the butter at room temperature till it softens a bit, but still hard enough to hold shape and get blended. Using a beater, beat the butter and then add condensed milk. Again beat till you get a creamy mix.

Sift the flour with baking powder, baking soda and keep it aside.

To the liquid add 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup cola and gently blend in to mix well.

Then add the remaining quantity and combine. do not over beat.

Pre heat oven at 170 C.

Grease and dust a 8" square baking tray. Ensure the extra flour is removed

Pour the batter into the tray. The consistency is dropping state, gently pat it down using the spatula or pat it down.

Bake the cake for 30 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let it cool for 5 minutes.

Invert on to the wire rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing.

I have heard of cola in cakes but never tasted it. I do not like flavored coke and always prefer regular coke. I don't notice much difference in coke or pepsi but some people are very picky.

Valli, you and I must be the only people on Earth who don't drink carbonated beverages. :)I have never baked with those yet. That cake BTW looks wonderful

Lot of instruction for a novice baker. Nicely written helpful post.

Aerated soda is a great addition to eggless cakes -- makes them airy & light. I've only made a pistachio cake with soda (and egg) and never tried eggless cakes with it. Bookmarked!!
Valli, I'm surprised you've never tried soda. I'm not a big fan, but do indulge on them occasionally :-)

I have tried this cake from Vaishali's space. Its one of the best cakes I have ever made! Cola - milkmaid is an awesome combination

I simply love thia cake, infact my first ever cake was qith condensed milk and cola, it comes out super, though i like to use oil rather than butter in my cakes, specially in winters.
Shocking that most of you are not fond of aerated drinks... I am a big fan of any kind of drinks non alcoholic though😊

Add me to the list of people who doesn't drink aerated drinks. The cake looks fantastic.

This cake looks perfect! I have never used condensed milk for eggless cake but it looks like I need to give it a try!

A delicious and soft cake.

Valli this was the first successful cake that I too baked eggless. These days I do not bake it as the girls buy the biggest bottle then and sit to finish it.
The texture of the cake is amazing though.

I thought I had commented on this post! Condensed milk and aerated drink is a combo I am yet to try. It was interesting to read about the since behind the bake...

I do use condensed milk for my vanilla batter but haven't used any aerated drinks so far. Your cake has turned out so soft and moist. I also have heard about adding eno salt for condensed milk cakes. Need to give all these variations a try...

Sandhya Ramakrishnan May 11, 2015 at 5:07 AM  

I have never tried to make an egg less cake with aerated drink....I have used condensed milk and this combination looks like it works great. Lovely recipe Valli!

Priya Srinivasan May 11, 2015 at 11:17 AM

I also use the condensed milk and cola in the cake. It turns out yumm. However, can anyone tell me if we can store these cakes in the freezer and extend it shelf life without affecting the taste once it comes to room temp later ?

Srivalli July 14, 2015 at 8:59 AM  

Smitha This sponge cake can be cling wrapped and frozen over 2 months. Though I have not tried this, my friends have confirmed that it stays good.
