Awhat's a classic sponge -- you mean not chocolate? what we call yellow or white cake here in the states?

AI used to try and bake like that for my son. I really don't know that you can make a sponge cake without eggs. The substitutes will help bind but I don't know of anything that will give the frothy cell structure you get from eggs. But here are some substitutions: soy, almond or rice milk; Nucoa (soy margarine); spelt for wheat but not if it's a gluten allegy, for gluten free Cup for Cup or mix your own blend of potato starch, rice flour and sorgum; for the egg there is flax seed, silken tofu, some say apple sauce but I've never tried it. I tried for a year then turns out my son just didn't like cake no matter what I did so I gave up! For gluten free do a Google a arch for the right proportions of the flours or buy gluten free flours - but be warned there are some pretty bad ones!

this is a great choco cake -- no dairy no eggs -- i tried it with white wheat flour* so i can't speak to that but if you got some gf all purpose flour from the store -- i bet you would have a nice product -- it might be a bit much for you to be mixing up your flours right now -- read the label on the gf flour you get and make sure there's no xanthan gum in it for this project --


and here's a thread about it fwiw and there's a picture of the cake --


*y'know i think i did use gf flour -- the kind with fava beans & stuff because i kept smelling it and it could smell the beaniness but you really couldn't taste it -- but anyway should work out great for you with gf flour -- just opt for the all purpose sans (without) xanthan gum --


best to you
