Cake!! Yummy! I love cakes... However, I'm a hopeless baker.. Baking is an art. It is not like cooking..You have to be really perfect with measures...I have never been successful even with instant cake mixes. The reason is-I don't use eggs at home...
I have tried many eggless cake recipes but never liked the taste...
I then started using the egg replacer (Ener G). The cake was good but my cakes were not moist enough... Finally, I heard from my husband that my co-sister makes awesome eggless cakes with instant cake mixes..I spoke to her and learnt the trick.
Here is the trick to make eggless cakes from an Instant cake mix!
1 pkt cake mix (Betty Crocker is good)
1 handful Chopped nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts or any nut of your choice)
1/4 cup oil
1 tbsp I can't believe its not butter (@ room temperature)
or any similar butter substitute
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to the temperature mentioned on the cake mix.
Transfer the ingredients in the cake mix to a wide mouthed glass bowl. Add the chopped nuts.
Stir in oil and butter to the cake mix and mix evenly.
Slowly add 1/2 portion of the milk to the mix, working with a blender in the other hand.
Slowly add more milk.
Blend for 3o seconds first till you get a smooth batter.
Then blend together for 3 minutes till smooth and fluffy (or the time mentioned on the package).
Spray some nonstick baking spray (like PAM) on an aluminium foiled cake pan
Transfer the batter. Spray some more non stick baking spray on top.
Bake according to the instructions on the package.
To check if it is well cooked, insert and toothpick and see if it comes out clean.
Aluminium foiled cake pans work best. In this instant cake recipe, don't bother too much about the oil and milk measure, they are sure to turn out good even with rough measures :)
