Normally eggs are always added after whisking which helps to inculcate air into it and results in a fluffy and gives spongy nature to the cake. It also enhances both flavour and texture and help in raising the cake, but vegans do not worry as there are various egg replacements where they can use condensed milk or any egg replacement powder. Though eggs are an important ingredient to make sponge cakes, it can also be made without eggs.
As the name suggests the eggless sponge cake is made without eggs and is very spongy, when you press the crust it springs back. Its spongy texture is utilized in making gateaux, pastries where the cake soaks the fruit juices and makes the dessert extremely soft to eat. The sponge texture is achieved by making the batter properly aerated which is achieved by beating but at the same time over beating can also spoil the cake.
Firstly preheat the oven. For this cake we have to use cookie sheet so prepare them by spraying with non-stick spray and keep aside. In a bowl or mixer, add condensed milk or plain and powdered sugar and whisk until well mixed. Melt the butter and add the warm butter to the sugar mixture and beat until mixed
well. Now take the all purpose flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together in a bowl and mix well and add this to the sugar & milk mixture. Now add the soda i.e. coke and mix everything well it should be not be too thick. Then divide the batter evenly on the two prepared sheets, just tap the sheets in order to spread evenly and remove the air bubble. Put these sheets in the preheated oven at 400'F for 15mins and switch of immediately and let it be in the oven for next 15 mins. Do not remove them let them cook in switched off oven. Remove them and let them cool completely before doing any icing.
