1. Because of the absence of eggs in the batter, there are more chances of eggless cake not turning super spongy. Therefore, make sure you preheat the oven and place the cake as much as possible, in the center of the pan. There are two reasons for this, first is; that a non preheated oven will start baking your cake after taking its time, and because of that your cake will not rise as much as it should making it less spongy instantly. The second reason for including this step in your eggless cake recipe is that if you do not place your cake in the centre, the heat will not be evenly distributed and that will destroy the consistency of the cake.

2. In the absence of eggs, make sure to use the same eggless cake ingredients ratio; the  substitutes of the same could be baking soda, applesauce, mashed bananas, flax seeds, vinegar. A usual eggless cake recipe won’t tell you about the ratio of the ingredients specifically. You can also watch video recipes to learn how to use ingredients to substitute eggs if you are a novice baker. An eggless sponge cake is renowned for its airy and light texture. To achieve this, sift your dry ingredients thoroughly, and ensure that you beat the cake batter until it’s light and fluffy.

3. While you are not using the eggs, do not overbeat the batter lest the cake should sink in the middle when baked. A myth has been created due to an overdose of cake recipes that you should beat hard in order to bake an eggless sponge cake. You should avoid that mistake, or your cake will be ruined. However, make sure you beat the fat and sugar batter for a frothier texture.
