Eggless Coffee Cake


There are so many recipes out there. Some look perfect but when attempted are a dismal failure.

Now I love coffee cakes and have made a few but all egg based. So when I get an order for an eggless coffee walnut cake for this weekend I readily said yes and then sat in a tizzy wondering what recipe should I try.


Most people shy away from eggless, yes that used to be me at a point but when u have a dear friend who asks “eggless hai kya” plus live in an area that prefers eggless, the need of the hour is a good eggless recipe.

To my luck a fantabulous baker Priyanka Arora Nayak (urf Baker Rani) from Polka Dots Cake Academy posted this recipe and I didn’t wait a day before eagerly attempting a trial batch. It was so yum that I saved some just to photograph it. All the other pieces were gobbled up.



140 gms All purpose flour

30 gms Cocoa powder

1 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Baking soda

150 ml yoghurt

165 gms castor sugar

1/2 cup oil

3 tsp coffee powder mixed with 1 tbsp. hot water

1 tsp Vanilla extract

3 tbsp. milk

1/4 tsp salt

On the side whipped cream and a rum cinnamon sauce (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 160C and line a 7″ tin.
  2. Combine coffee and hot water
  3. Sieve the dry ingredients – APF, Cocoa, BP, BS and salt.
  4. Beat yoghurt and sugar till well blended.
  5. Add coffee mix and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  6. Add oil very gradually, while beating continuously.
  7. Mix dry ingredient mixture in 3 instalments and gently mix the batter. Avoid over mixing it.
  8. Add milk and mix gently. Pour into the greased tin. Tap 2-3 times to remove the air bubbles.
  9. Bake at 160C for 45-50 mins or until a skewer comes clean.
