This Eggless Vanilla Cake Recipe is the bomb!! Its sweet buttery flavor and light and moist texture make it perfect to celebrate any occasion!
This is my new favorite Eggless Vanilla Cake Recipe!
Special occasions celebration, like birthdays, school parties, etc… are a real struggle for people with food allergies. In my opinion, egg allergy is one of the most difficult food allergies to live with because eggs are hidden ingredients in so many foodstuffs.
Celebrating through food is a big part of our culture.
Who could imagine a birthday party without a cake or cupcakes?
So, when my daughter was diagnosed with egg allergy when she was 1-year-old I promised myself that she would never feel left out because of her condition. And so, my adventure of cooking without eggs started.
Have been a LONG journey! But today, I finally feel that I have the perfect Eggless Vanilla Cake Recipe.
I really like this Vanilla Cake’s sweet buttery flavor and light and moist texture.
Let’s talk about the ingredients. Just like all my recipes, I wanted to have simple ingredients that most people usually have on hand. Mission accomplished✔️
It’s super easy to make.

Recipe updated, originally posted September 2014. Since posting this in 2014, I have tweaked the recipe to be easier.
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups self-rising flour
- 2 cups whole milk (you can substitute with any plant milk you like)
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter until creamy and pale. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Add vanilla and mix to combine.
Combine milk and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.
Add the flour alternately with milk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Scrape down the mixing bowl with a spatula and turn the batter over several times to ensure all of the ingredients are well incorporated. Beat just until incorporated. Do not overmix this batter.
Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pans (2 1/2 cups of batter in each pan approximately).
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when poked in the center.
Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool. Remove from the pan and decorate to your liking.
To bake in a 9x13 pan: Simply pour the batter into a greased and lightly floured 9x13 pan and bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cakes can be baked ahead, cooled, and covered tightly at room temperature overnight.
To make your own self-rising flour combine for each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. For this recipe, you'll need to combine 4 cups of all-purpose flour + 6 teaspoons of baking powder + 1 teaspoon salt.
