Recipe for Eggless Yellow Cake

I bought some strawberries the other day at Safeway and the hubby really wanted some kind of yellow or white cake to eat them with. So far I’ve only made a eggless chocolate cake so I wasn’t quite sure how the yellow cake would work. The result was super yummy and I love not having to limit myself with it because it has no eggs!

Recipe for Eggless Cake (Yellow)

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar(I used Turbinado)
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1 T. vinegar

In a medium sized bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients first. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m pretty sure this recipe could easily be made gluten free as well if you sub the regular flour for gluten free flour.

Add in the wet but don’t stir until you have added all the wet to the dry. If it’s easier just mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then add them together. Also, I used regular milk but if you need it to be dairy free you could add soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, or something similar.

Pour in a greased 8×8 pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Eat just like any other yellow cake. We had ours with whipped cream and strawberries!

  1. Great recipe! I made a 6 inch round layer cake and it turned out great. Baked up perfectly! Topped it with raspberry buttercream frosting. Yum!

  2. WOW, I’ve been searching for an eggless yellow cake that would actually RISE! I’ve tried all the egg substitutes and everything has either tasted gross or I ended up with a fallen cake. The last disaster left me in tears at 11pm with a fallen yellow cake and a party early the next day. A google search led me to your cake, and fortunately I had all the ingredients in the house! The cake was a success, and it’s now requested at all family parties!

    I did make one adjustment one time that made the cake light and melty. I was out of regular milk so I used vanilla almond milk (because it was midnight and that’s what there was). I eliminated one teaspoon of vanilla because of the vanilla flavoring in the milk. The cake got RAVE reviews!

    So thanks so much! I really love your site, and we’ve been making the move to being more “Little House on the Prairie” ourselves.

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for this recipe. I’m glad I tried it before our big party coming up. Unfortunately, we did not love it and followed the directions to the letter. It was too dense and not fluffy or airy enough for us. The flavor could have been better too. I’m sorry to say all this, just wanted to let others know we didn’t enjoy it, unfortunately.

    My husband has an egg allergy so we will be trying another yellow cake in the future. We have found wacky chocolate cakes to perform best in the chocolate dept. Thanks.

  4. I just wanted to say Thank You for sharing the yellow cake eggless recipe and the Vanilla Pudding recipe~ My son who has Asperger’s syndrome is allergic to eggs, diary, and canola oil. I have been looking for recipe for an eggless cake to make him a birthday cake! He loves vanilla pudding as well, so I am going to try that recipe and will use Coconut Milk in it. He tolerates Coconut Milk and Coconut oil well. Thank you again for sharing. If you have any other recipes I would love to see them!

    1. I hope he enjoys this Mary! Me and my son cannot have eggs either (and my oldest is allergic to dairy) so many of our recipes are egg and dairy free. 🙂

  5. I made this cake and followed all ingredients/directions but it did not rise and it looked like it was raw. It tasted really good though! I’m not sure why it turned out that way?? Any suggestions?
