Eggless Cakes

Cakes without eggs are still delicious!

When we think about making a cake other than flour, butter, and sugar, the next go-to ingredient is eggs. It is traditional to create a cake with eggs, however, for some, this means that they can’t enjoy a delicious cake.

You’d be surprised how many people have an intolerance to eggs, sometimes it’s just chicken eggs and you can eat other eggs, but not always. And also, it’s needless to say that if you have a vegan diet, you definitely can’t have eggs of any kind.

You may think, well eggs are an essential ingredient in creating a delicious fluffy and light cake. No, you can create a yummy cake with a great texture without using eggs! It’s true! You can use alternative ingredients to create the same effect eggs have in the baking process, one alternative is apple sauce, if you decide to throw your hand at this replacement, don’t forget to reduce the amount of sugar in your recipe to compensate for the amount of sugar in the apple sauce. Or, you can use milk or soya milk to compensate and keep the cake moist and fluffy. There are lots of options!

We have created a no eggs cake range, so everyone is able to enjoy a delicious cake. Firstly, we started by tasting other eggless cakes, this is a very important part of the process, as it allowed us to realise something important. The majority of the cakes we taste-tested were dry and crumbly, they weren’t that enjoyable. We wanted to change that perception, so our second step was to trial different eggless cake recipes until we found the right one to create a delightful base recipe that was fluffy, light, and moist. The cakes needed to be as delicious as our standard range and we think we’ve hit the nail on the head. Finally, after we worked out the best base recipe, we set out to create some delicious flavour combinations to give you a delicious range of cakes. And the best bit is that all of our eggless cakes are suitable for vegans too!

It’s important to us that everyone gets to enjoy a yummy cake on special occasions, as we know how they can be a highlight for some, and we love knowing that our cakes put smiles on people’s faces. So, we work hard to try and cover all dietary requirements with our cakes, where possible, and we look to expand our offerings over time. We also try to make sure that you have plenty of choices so that you can find the perfect cake for your occasion.

So, by now you’re probably thinking ‘where can I buy an eggless cake’ – at, of course! Here are the eggless cakes we have available for you to purchase:

Vegan Carrot Cake - Grated carrots, soya milk, walnuts, sultanas, and cinnamon make a deliciously moist vegan sponge. Complimented with creamy vegan buttercream made from vegan butter and a dash of natural lemon flavouring. Crunched walnuts on top. An eggless carrot cake that you’re bound to enjoy!

The secret to our Vegan Carrot cake is we make up for the lack of eggs in a slightly different way than our Vegan Chocolate cake recipe. Initially, we combine most of the ingredients, including fruit, nuts, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, and flour. Soya milk with lemon juice and oil is then added to bind the mixture together, ensuring cracks do not occur and preventing dryness from occurring in the sponge. In turn, creating a deliciously moist and tasty Vegan Carrot cake! We even think that our Vegan Carrot cake might be better than our regular carrot cake.

Vegan Chocolate Cake - Our totally decadent Vegan Chocolate Sponge Cake, is generously sandwiched together and topped with chocolate vegan buttercream, and sprinkled with nibbed cocoa pieces on top for added texture. It's rich, moist, and delicious. A delicious eggless chocolate cake, yummy!

For our Vegan Chocolate Cakes, we start by mixing vegan butter, sugar, coffee, and golden syrup for 3 to 4 minutes until combined. Soya milk blended with lemon juice is added, helping to prevent cracks from forming in the cakes later on in the baking process! Flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and xanthan gum, is then added along with the soya milk helping to bind the cake batter together. At this stage, you would not be able to tell the difference between our regular cake mixes and our egg-free vegan ones! All ingredients work together ensuring the cake doesn’t lose its structure without the presence of eggs.

We have expanded our eggless cake offerings over the years, and there are some other moreish flavours to sink your teeth into:

Vegan Chocolate Caramel Fudge Cake - Our Vegan Chocolate Caramel Fudge Cake has a deliciously moist chocolate sponge that is sandwiched together with lashings of caramel flavoured buttercream and chunks of vegan vanilla fudge. On top, you will find more caramel buttercream finished off with more chunks of delicious salted caramel fudge and a sprinkling of cocoa nibs. Fudge, caramel, and chocolate are a match made in heaven!

Vegan Victoria Sponge Cake - A delicious vegan and dairy free Victoria sponge cake sandwiched together with strawberry jam and vegan vanilla icing. Dusted on top with icing sugar. Perfect for all ages and occasions.

Vegan Millionaires Cake - Our Vegan Millioniares cake is truly scrumptious! Half the sponge is hand-made with natural vanilla flavouring and the other half is made with indulgent vegan chocolate. The vegan sponges are sandwiched together with a delicious caramel vegan buttercream, and finished off with a pretty drizzle of vegan chocolate on top.
