Eggless Vanilla Cake Premix is one of the most requested recipes is for cake premix. I have been messaged a lot for this recipe, but I never felt like researching for it. And one fine day, that is today, I got my inspiration and started with the preparations. I used my basic cake recipes to convert to a premix.
The most challenging part was the amount of liquid to be added and also the premix needed so many adjusting to get to the final proportions. I baked nearly four cakes today. the first two were great flops and they all became bird food. The third and fourth were just amazing and I am quite happy that I tried it again and again.
It has been a while since I experimented with cake recipes and to see the final cake, it was worth all the work from the morning. Now my head is so full of ideas on how to use this premix in different recipes. But I will keep all those for another video. Today I will show you how to make a basic white cake mix and make a vanilla cake with it. I will also show you two cakes, one baked in oven and other in stove top. Now I have a secret to share.
After three failures and adjusting the mix, I mixed the third batter and placed it inside oven and then there was power shut down. Oops. I immediately shifted it to a pan and baked it. Once it baked, power came back. So I went and mixed the batter again and baked my fourth cake in OTG. So finally even though it gave me heart attack during baking, all is well and I end up with two cakes which I can show viewers to find out the difference between the modes of baking.
The cake was feather soft to touch and absolutely delicious. And by varying the fat used, you can either frost it with buttercream/ ganache or whipped cream. So the mix is so versatile and the cakes also would be very versatile when you swap fat. If using oil, you can pair it with whipped cream and serve it straight out of fridge. And if using butter, you can pair it with ganache or buttercream and serve it at room temperature.
Eggless Vanilla Cake Premix – Whole wheat version
You can also make whole wheat version with this recipe. Use Sharbati atta of any brand instead of maida and use unrefined sugar instead of sugar. Use only 800 gm of whole wheat flour instead of one kg maida. And while using it for the cake, use only 130 gm of the mix instead of 150 gm. These are the changes you need to make while converting to whole wehat recipe.
