Eggless Vanilla Cake Ingredients

Plain Flour – I used refined flour in this recipe. But you can easily use whole wheat flour in this same recipe.

Sugar – brown sugar cannot be used in this cake. you need regular white sugar. The sugar measurement in this cake will make moderately sweet cake, but you can reduce the quantity of the sugar as per your sweet preference.

Yogurt | Curd – use thick yogurt for better texture. Yogurt acts as a tenderizer for the cake which keeps the cake incredibly soft.

Milk – combo of milk and yogurt makes this cake incredibly soft.

Leavening Agents – Combination of baking soda (cooking soda) and baking powder is used.

Oil – for ease and convenience I used refined oil. But you can add melted butter which adds flavour.

Vanilla Extract – use pure vanilla for flavour.
