I was asked to make an egg free birthday cake for (2) 11 yr old girls who have an allergy to eggs. The Mom mentioned that a lot of times cake without eggs do not taste good and wanted to know if I had a good cake recipe. Does anyone have a good and very tasty recipe? I have found recipes for chocolate egg-free cake, but not vanilla. Thanks so much for your help!!!
I used one from here - I think it was called "Almond Cake" (there are variations listed - just use the "white cake" variation). The recipe poster said something about having gotten it from Betty Crocker.
It was a decent cake, if I recall...
I have a good one that I got from someone who eats egg free. The only thing is, it came from a cupcake book, and I was making cupcakes. I'm not sure how it would turn out as a cake although I am happy to share it if you would like. What cake does she have in mind, would cuppies work for her?
@cookiekisses, please send me that recipe!! Thank you!!
@smm99, please send me the almond cake recipe if you have it. I looked on the Betty Crocker website and couldn't find it.
They actually want a cake covered in fondant. Do you think these recipes would hold up? It is just going to be a simple one tier round cake.
Mix until curdled:
1 c. milk or soy milk
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 c. flour
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
2 1/4 tsp. vanilla
Mix until no lumps remain. Bake at 325 until top springs back when touched.
I would think that a 1 tier would hold up with fondant. Once you try it once, you can gauge how it will work in the future for multiple layers and such. Good luck!
ETA: I think it would hold up just fine under fondant - why wouldn't it? Chilling the cake before covering in fondant will help it hold it's shape while you apply the fondant, if you're worried about it "smooshing".
