Eggless Red velvet cake

Updated: Jul 3, 2020

I made this beautiful cake for a birthday. The birthday girl was absolutely delighted and loved how it tasted. Though it was made without eggs, the cake turned out perfectly moist and balanced the tastes of chocolate, buttermilk and vanilla to replicate the classic red velvet flavour


  • 1 cup powdered sugar (200 gm)

  • 1 and 1/2th cups (approx 180 grams) plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon Cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. Heat the oven to 180°c.

  2. In a separate bowl mix together the milk and lime juice, let this sit for 5 mins so it makes the buttermilk

  3. Sift the flour, coco powder and baking soda in a bowl and mix to combine

  4. Beat butter and sugar till it is pale and light

  5. Fold in the dry mix and buttermilk and yogurt in an alternate fashion starting and ending with dry ingredients

  1. Whip cream till soft peaks form

  2. Add in sugar and continue to beat till a you have defined peaks
