Eggless apple cake recipe

I tried this eggless apple cake recipe using wheat flour/ atta by watching Sanjeev Kapoor’s YouTube video. As this is my first attempt of trying an apple cake at home without eggs, I followed original recipe to the dot. Chef used wheat flour and maida in equal quantities. Cake came out so soft, moist and spongy. I should call it as apple cinnamon cake because cinnamon acts as the major flavoring ingredient. When the cake is baked, I could feel a nice fruit smell with cinnamon all over the house. We all loved it. 

During Christmas season, most of us like to bake a fruit cake at home. If you are bored with the regular dry fruits cake, you can try this eggless apple cake instead. The best part is you can make this cake in microwave mode, convection oven and in a pressure cooker as well. 

Actually I baked 3/4 th of the batter in convection mode and the remaining in microwave mode by keeping in a glass bowl. Both turned out great. Convection oven cake took nearly 40 minutes of baking time whereas in microwave it was done under 4 minutes. So you can bake this eggless apple cake in microwave mode or convection mode in your oven. 

If you want to bake the same in pressure cooker, it is also possible. Just spread 1 inch of powdered salt in a thick cooker bottom.  Put a small plate or slotted plate over the sand, preheat the cooker for 15 minutes in medium flame till salt is heated. Remove the gasket and weight valve from the lid and cover the cooker. After preheating, place the baking pan and cook for 20 to 30 minutes in low flame. Check with a tooth pick & remove after cooling down. This recipe is so versatile and it works great for all the baking methods.

Friends, do try this eggless apple cake recipe and share your feedback with me. Hope the step by step pictures can help you better. I will try to share the video recipe soon.

  • Add sieved dry flour to the wet milk mixture. Add little by little and mix without lumps.

  • Batter should be thick and pourable. It will fall like a ribbon. Lastly add 1 tbsp cooking oil. Mix well.

  • Take an aluminum baking pan. Grease it with butter. Sprinkle maida all over the pan and dust off the excess flour. Pour the cake batter to the pan. Fill 3/4th of the pan. Pat the pan to level the batter and break the air bubbles.

  • Preheat the oven in convection mode at 180c. Place the baking pan and bake at 180c for 35 to 40 minutes. Cake rises and cracks on top. No issues. After 30 minutes, open the oven and insert a tooth pick or knife in the middle of the cake. If its sticky or with batter, bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. If the knife comes out clean, cake is done. Remove the baking pan and set aside to cool down.

  • After the cake becomes warm, run a knife around the cake and loosen the sides. Invert the cake in a plate and remove it. Make pieces and enjoy ! This cake stays good only for 2 days if kept outside. Refrigeration is not advisable because cake may become dry. So its better to consume soon.

  • FOR MICROWAVE APPLE CAKE : Take 1 cup of apple cake batter in a big glass bowl. Microwave in high power (800w) for 3 to 4 minutes. Check with a tooth pick and remove it. Invert in a bowl after cooling down.


  • You can use wheat flour completely instead of atta and maida half and half. But cake looks dense and thick. Not fluffy as shown in the picture. You may need to add more baking soda too.
  • You can use brown sugar instead of white sugar for healthy options.
