Eggless Vanilla Pound Cake

Nothing can beat the rich, velvety flavor of a homemade Eggless Vanilla Pound Cake. Eggless Vanilla Pound Cake

It is called a “pound cake” because the original cake recipes used one pound of everything – eggs, butter, flour, sugar and the end result was a sinfully yummy pound cake. Well this recipe, eggless Vanilla pound cake has all the different proportions but is still super moist and a delicious cake!!

When baking a pound cake the first thing that comes to our mind is EGGS because its the key ingredient for a pound cake. Eggs not only adds structure and flavor to a cake but are used for binding, leaving and thickening our cakes. So what can replace this magic ingredients – tofu, curd and milk. Yes, you heard me right – the combo of these three creates such a fluffy and moist cake that you will hardly miss eggs in this cake.

Tofu, a soybean product, acts as a thickening agent, yogurt makes the cake rich and moist and milk balances the density of the cake and adds flavor.

RECIPE DETAIL – This recipe is pretty straightforward – sift, mix the ingredients, bake and enjoy!! Sift dry ingredients first. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl mix tofu and yogurt until thick and creamy. You can choose to puree tofu in a blender and later combine it with beaten curd. Add dry ingredients, mix it well and bake @ 350 degree F for 30-40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. 

Instead of icing or frosting my cake, I like to dust my cake with powdered sugar once it has cooled down. Enjoy a perfect tea time cake!!

  6. Sheena says:

    Can I use 1 cup of curd in replacement of the tofu

    • Ruchi says:

      Sheena, replacing tofu with curd may call for some liquid adjustments in the recipe. Depending on how thick or liquid the curd is, quantity of milk will be adjusted. Haven’t tried it without tofu so can’t comment on the texture of the cake.

    Hi Ruchi,

    I have some queries regarding your above recipe, eggless pound cake

    1. Can I substitute tofu with paneer??
    2. Your recipe says “1/2 – 1 teaspoon Baking soda”. You mean 1&1/2 tsp
    baking soda or between 1/2 to 1 tsp.

    Kindly clarify.

    Thanks for the lovely recipe. Will surely try it. I always look forward to your blog. Kindly also post soft and moist chocolate cake recipe to be baked in an electric oven and not microwave. Thanks once again.
    The eggless pound cake looks very yummy and delicious.

    • RK says:

      Thanks for kind words Mrs. Nilufar. Will look into your request.
      1. Unfortunately Tofu cannot be substituted with paneer. You can replace tofu with applesauce but the results will not be the same.
      2. Use 1 teaspoon baking soda for this recipe. 1/2 – 1 teaspoon meant use either 1/2 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon.

      Feel free to email me if you have any more question.
