Eggless Zebra Cake

Most of us think that cakes with eggs are the best, but trust me eggless cakes are fabulous and spongy as much as like the cakes with eggs. I have be experimenting eggless versions of cake, as like everyone some of my eggless cakes are disaster while few cakes came out extremely spongy and soft as much as like cake with eggs. Today am running my last week of blogging marathon before we kick start our long blogging marathon next month, the theme for this week is Eggless cakes with different subsitutes. My today's post is Eggless Zebra cake, i replaced eggs in this cake with hung curd and milk. Actually for this week's  Fond Bites-Bake Along, a weekly event by Subhashini, she suggested a super Marble vanilla chocolate cake for this week's challenge, i couldnt resist to make mine at home as eggless cake but as Zebra cake.Every week we get to know about the week's challenge on sunday and the members of this group should bake and share either in their blog or with the group members before the next sunday. Seriously am having real fun with this group actually learning so many different bakes every week.

The original recipe shared by Subhashini goes for 4 eggs, i replaced them simply with hung curd, do you know hung curd works fabulous as egg substitute.However this cake goes for butter,if you want your cake as a low fat, you can replace the butter very well with oil, but once a while its nothing harm to bake a cake with butter rite. If you are planning an eggless cake next time, give a try to this hung curd substitute and am sure you will definitely get your eggless cake with a fantabulous spongy texture.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.

Butter and oil have about the same amount of calories. Don't know anything about hung curd..is it a type of yogurt?
The cake looks beautiful.

@Angie Schneiderhung curd is prepared with thick curd Angie, if you strain the curd in muslin cloth, you will the hung curd. This is as much as like yogurt cheese..Hope this helps
