About Eggless Cooking

I’m Madhuram living in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA with my husband and my son who is two and a half years old. Although my mother tongue is Telugu, we are convenient with Tamil because we were born and raised in Tamil Nadu. The language we speak is a mixture of both.

I’ve always had interest in cooking. Back in India I used to follow all the cooking shows regardless of language, eagerly look for recipes in magazines be it veg or non veg. Being vegetarian, I used to think maybe I can use cauliflowers/potatoes in a non-veg recipe. But the truth is I didn’t cook as much as I watched the shows. Occasionally I used to try some interesting recipe or cook when my grandmother or mother was not feeling well which was very rare.

Like many others who come to US from India after their marriage I also packed as much as I can, which included a LOT of books on cooking. But again I didn’t get a chance to experiment all those recipes because my husband was a VERY VERY VERY DIET/HEALTH CONSCIOUS person. He didn’t want anything fried in oil, nothing spicy or salty, nothing very sweet. God that was a tough period to learn a different kind of cooking altogether! So again I was just reading recipes, now from websites. That was the only difference. We didn’t have cable TV connection then, so was not able to watch FOOD TV.

We had to move to Canada for a couple of months. There I started watching Food TV regularly, or to tell the truth, I was watching only Food TV. I was so thrilled to see the hosts baking cookies and cakes, breads and muffins. I just fell in love with baking. Until then I did not know what to do with the oven, I was just using it like another kitchen shelf, storing my oversize cooker, Dosa pans etc.

One day my husband and I were watching an episode in Food TV. Yes my husband also, even though he doesn’t eat much, he likes to watch Food TV. In that episode, the host was preparing potato puffs with puff pastry sheets. My husband told me that I should also try that, and to my surprise he also said that he will go to the store immediately and get the puff pastry and baking sheet and meanwhile I can prepare the potato stuffing. So I prepared the masala and switched on the oven to preheat it. My God, that was a big process because I had kept so many boxes etc in my oven, remember I was using it as a storage only. I had to remove all of them, find a place for it. (Now that I’m using the oven more often, not for baking per se but for preparing the store bought frozen French fries and making pizzas, my mother in law has converted the dishwasher into a storage area, seeing me moving things out each time I want to use the oven) My husband got the cookie sheets made in aluminum foil and the puffs came out very well. Hey I can hear what you guys are telling, this is not baking, it’s just using the oven. Yes I agree, but that was by itself a big deal for me.

Sometime later I bought a baking set because it was on sale. It was just lying idle. I didn’t know from where to start. Because I’ve seen in the Food TV shows, that they were using the big hand mixers etc. I didn’t want to invest in them without having a clue how to use them. So I used to google to see if there were any classes for baking nearby. But found none. Earlier I had bought the Magic Bullet blender and one day I was going through the recipe book given with that. There were some recipes for muffins. The process of preparing the batter was so simple, just put flour, oil etc in the blender’s big jar and pour it in the muffin pan. I wanted to try it, but I had to use eggs. As mentioned earlier being a vegetarian I was hesitant to bring eggs home. (But the secret was I started eating eggs after coming to US, I love Dunkin Donuts’ egg and cheese sandwich very much. Sshhh….. don’t tell my mother.) Then somehow I mustered some courage to buy eggs and try the recipe. I simply followed the instructions and it came out well, but both my husband and myself couldn’t tolerate the smell of egg in the muffins. I don’t know whether it was psychological or something, we didn’t feel like eating it at all.  We do enjoy the pastries bought from the store, we are conscious of the fact that they are made with eggs only, but the idea of bringing it home and baking with them made us uncomfortable. The same happened when I tried chocolate chip cookies also. So I didn’t bake anything later. But I did want to learn to bake and got a book “BAKING FOR DUMMIES”. I did see some eggless recipes in that book for cookies, but I don’t know why I didn’t try them. With a newborn and related pressure I forgot all about this.

We moved back to US again. Once I was googling to find out how to break the Jaggery mounds we get in the Indian store. That time I found a link to Indira’s site. I was really dumbfounded after visiting that site. It was EXCELLENT. There I found a recipe for an eggless cake made with bananas and carrots. I tried it the next day itself and it came out very well. I have tried that cake with so many variations and each time it’s a hit. This rekindled my passion for baking.

From Indira’s site I visited lot of other fabulous blogs. Until then I had no idea what blogs were and was not aware of the fact that there were so many other passionate cooks out there. Shilpa’s www.aayisrecipes.com, sunitha’s blog and so many other food blogs inspired me so much that I also wanted to become a part of this delicious world.

So that’s how egglesscooking.com was born.

Back in Canada again, since 2009.

  1. Raji

    Hi Madhuram,

    Your blog is a goto place for eggless baking! I also learnt about mono-di gyceridies from here. Thanks for your fabulous job. Many cake and frosting recipes call for white sugar. I think white sugar is not vegetarian due to its prcessing. How is your thought on that? Please share. I have the same q for powdered sugar too.

    Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the kind words Raji. Animal bones were used in the sugar refining process. I read that, that practice is outdated as more and more manufacturers have moved on to other methods. I don’t know where you live and what brand you use, but you can check the website of the brand/company for that information in the FAQ section. Here in Canada, I have tried that for the Red Path sugar I use and they have specifically put that their sugar is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

  2. Kate mosier

    i am wondering if you would know if i can make like cookie dough with the egg replacer and freeze it raw for later use. i recently found out i am allergic to severel products and eggs being the highest. I am wanting to make cookie dough, meatloaf, etc and freeze it. Can i do this with the ener-g egg replacer? I have not found anyone that can answer this question yet.

    • Madhuram

      Yes you can use Ener-G egg replacer to make cookie, freeze the batter raw for later use. I have done it many a times. But I have not tried eggless meatballs because I’m a vegetarian to begin with. So not sure if it will work in the same. I’m thinking some cornstarch, whole wheat flour can be used to bind the meatballs.

  3. Jennifer

    My son is allergic to eggs. We don’t have anything containing eggs in our home. I am so grateful for your website. Whenever there’s a family gathering and I need to make dessert (which happens often since I like to make sure the food is egg free) I look for recipes on your site because I know that they will turn out well! The first recipe I used was for eggless pancakes and now I’m a regular visitor 🙂 I just want to say thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Jennifer. Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your precious feedback. Much appreciate it.

  4. Swetha

    Hi Madhuram,

    All your recipes rock! I have tried a ton of your vegan recipes – mango cake, sugar free, Blueberry, chocolate, vanilla. All of them have turned out splendid !

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback Swetha.

  5. dhanashree

    Hi mam! How to replace 12 eggs in the recipe? Is it possible make replacement for each egg?

    • Madhuram

      Wow! That’s a lot of eggs to be replaced and I have done for only 4 eggs in a recipe at the most. 12 is a lot and I’m thinking it might not work. What recipe it is?

  6. Sesha

    Thank you so much for your website! My son is severely allergic to eggs and I cannot even have them in the house. Thanks to your website I was able to make wonderful cookies for my family for Thanksgiving without having to use eggs or expensive weird hard to find ingredients. The Chocolate chip cookies are amazing!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Sesha.

      • Kapil tomar

        Hello Madhuramji
        I want to post something on your blogs if you will allow me please let me know?

        • Madhuram

          Thanks for contacting Kapil. I’m not using outside content at the moment.

  7. Jayshree

    What should I use instead of Tofu in this recipe

    • Madhuram

      Which recipe Jayshree? You have commented in the About page.


    I’ve made the vegan red velvet cupcakes and want to freeze them. Is it better to freeze them before or after frosting?

    • Madhuram

      I have never froze with frosting. So not sure about it. Without frosting will definitely work.

  9. Saman

    My 1.5 year old is allergic to eggs so when I wanted to introduce him to pancakes, I had to google several times for eggless recipes until I came across your blog. Absolutely in love with your recipes, esp the pancakes to the point that I don’t use eggs at all now and only make them with your recipe for everyone.
    Thankyou for such user friendly recipes for amateur bakers like me!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Saman.

  10. Amrutha

    I have tried ur tutti fruti recipe but my cake was a bit dense . I forgot to add the milk and have added half cup more of apple sauce . Could it be due to this mistakes

    • Madhuram

      Probably. Because pureed fruit gives a heaviness to baked treats.

      • Amrutha

        Also I had doubled the quantity of ingredients , cooking time had increased considerably to half an hour more and yet centre of the cake was raw . How should I adjust cooking time

        • Madhuram

          Did you do the toothpick test?

  11. Shibani

    Hi madhuram,
    I hope u remember me. I was checking a recipe in my blog and found ur commemts.Thought of checking with you. Love you awesome collections.
    I have started blogging again.

  13. Nanthiny Raman

    Hi Madhuram.

    I have tried your carrot cake recipe. It’s really superb! My family loves it a lot. Next I am gonna try your eggless choclate cake. Feeling so excited ya. Just a quick question. When I bake the carrot cake in 2, 8 inch tray, will the cake look taller? Do advice me. Take care.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Nanthiny. Yes it will be a little taller when you use 8 inch pans.

  14. Carol

    I’ve been baking eggless for several years. Thank you for your expertise.

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Carol.

  15. Adrienne E

    It’s very insightful to read about some more vegan lifestyle choices. As a private chef I’m required to be open minded and sites like these definitely help me improve my cooking efforts for clients.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Adrienne.

  16. Leena Pandya

    Excellent recipes with detailed information about the ingredients and all technicalities . Loved the information of the egg replacer and substitutes.Baked the vanilla cupcakes taking half the measures ,they turned out superb! Thanks a lot! Would love if you could share some authentic tamil cuisine too!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Lenna. I started another blog for cooking recipes but have not been able to update regularly. Hope will be able to do so more in the future. http://www.VegConer.com

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Surpreet. Happy baking!

  18. Priyanka

    Hi Madhuram!
    I’m new in US. And I can totally relate to your earlier days. I did not know how to use the oven at first. But having watched Masterchef and many such cookery shows back in India, I always wanted to bake! So When I read a potato wedges recipe on Pinterest and tried to make it last week, the fire alarm started ringing because I kept the oven door open for long and the heat was on! That’s scared me a lot! So I thought of giving up. Then my husband encouraged me to be careful next time (because he gets to eats things if I learn well) 😉
    After that I have carefully prepared eggless cheese muffins, eggless veggie pie and eggless blueberry muffins!
    Just today I found your wonderful food site. I’m happy I did. I started reading about you and got inspired. I’ll be checking your site more often. Thanks for writing.
    I have a baby girl who just turned 1. I’m sure she’ll enjoy my baking more onwards.

    Good job! Thanks again! 🙂

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for sharing your story Priyanka. 🙂 I remember having to fan the fire alarm quite often during the initial days of using the oven/range. 😉 All the best and happy baking.

  19. Ujwala

    good initiative on eggless cooking.

  20. lakshmi

    I too am in the usa and I have baked a bit in in india.. having 2 kids with younger one only 9 months old fives me less time to cook .. but still I am keen to restart baking.. I was wondering if a stand mixer will be of ant use..I am keen to bake cookies, pizza as well as eggless cakes and bread as well.. would you recommend a good stand mixer ans of no then any better alternatives ??

    • Madhuram

      I have been able to manage without one so far. But I have cut down baking a lot. Don’t try too many yeast bread recipes etc…all I do is very simple, straight forward baking like cakes, cookies, muffins and cupcakes most of the time and electric hand beater serves the purpose.

  21. Buni

    I am so glad I came across this site Egglesscooking.com

    Just a question: what kind of egg substitute should I use to make either cookies or cake or breakfast muffins with Barley

    What to consider whenever I use different recipes with different egg substitute??


    • Madhuram

      Barley flour has gluten in it, so you can substitute it in the recipes which uses all-purpose flour. But I think using barley flour entirely might affect the taste and texture of the baked item. So you may want to try incorporating half of each. Check out my egg substitutes page for further information about different egg substitutes. https://www.egglesscooking.com/egg-substitutes/

  22. Sheetu

    Love your website and all the lovely eggless bakes. I have tried a few recipes and they all came out well. I am a Punjabi married to Tamilian currently in NJ. Your post bought a smile on my face as we share a bit similar story. Especially baking oven being a storage corner, watching Food TV together with hubby dear and loving DD egg sandwich. I attempted baking with eggs initially however couldn’t bear the smell of eggs at home. I am so Thankful to you and some other websites for amazing eggfree baking recipes. Now I bake regularly for family and share it with friends too and get compliments.

    • Madhuram

      Wow! great to know that we share a similar story, Sheetu. 🙂

  23. Aarti Doshi

    Heyya madhuram, I’m from tamil nadu too.. though not a tamilian but hard core south indian 🙂 and its nice to know that now I can easily open a site for all eggless recipes. Thank you for makin it easy for we vegetarians.. keep bakin..

    • Madhuram

      That’s great to to know Aarti. 🙂 You’re welcome.

  24. Devendran Ramaiyan

    Hi Madhu

    It is really interesting and inspiring to me since I am also a very cook u know. But since 2006, I keep our Oven in kitchen as u said same like that only.

    But I like to use the same to do some baking items but I don’t have time to do the experiment now but definately i will come back and do it.

    Thanks for the efforts u have taken to build this platform for many people who will get good food with your ideas and innovation and new dimensional cakes and cookies etc…..

    Keep doing and exploring to the new ideas and creativity….

    God bless you

    • Madhuram

      Oh, thank you so much Deva, for your kind words. Baking is not difficult at all. All it needs is passion and patience. Do message me if you have any doubts. I’ll be more than happy to help you.

  25. Christina

    Hi Madhuram,

    I just stumbled upon your website because we had no eggs left in the house and I’ve found myself for the past half hour browsing through all your delicious-looking recipes. I love how easy you’ve made it to follow your recipes and the simple ingredients you use, I’ve been on other vegan websites and they use all these fancy ingredients that I can’t find in Hong Kong where I live. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
    My only request is that you add a “save recipe” button so I can go back to them later because I’m so overwhelmed now with all the goods I want to make from your website :)!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for your kind words of appreciation Christina. I will see what can be done about the “save recipe” option. Thanks for the suggestion.

  26. Aadhya

    Hi Madhuram,
    I was hunting around for some eggless recipes for muffins and just came across yours . Iam going to try your banana muffins this week. They seem to be great. I’ve been making banana bread but it uses eggs and this time I wanted to make some eggless ones.
    Loved to read ‘about eggless cooking’. Thought I saw a bit of myself there … All the best!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Kamna.

    Mazee Africa

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for contacting me Mazee and all the best for baking egg free. All the recipes I have on the blog are quite simple, especially with the extensive notes and suggestions I have mentioned. Start with basic cookie or simple cake recipes. Do contact me if you have any doubts on a specific recipe, so that I can make your baking experience less frustrating.

  32. Anshumee

    Hi ,

    Read your story. I can totally relate to your story parts where the oven initially was a storage place for me too and toasting store bought garlic bread was a big deal for me. Slowly started baking (eggless, ofcourse) and still not a pro with it as with my 11/2 year old son , I don’t find that much time. I am so much inspired by your story to do it more often. Thanks for posting your story.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Anshumee.

  34. Hema

    Hi there!
    after years of hunting i finally found your site to help vegetarians like me bake with ease. Thanks a ton for making life easy for all vegetarians! will try the recipes from your site. i have a request though… could you please help me with a donut (doughnut) recipe? I have the energy egg re-placer but sadly never attempted to use it, with your help finally the product is put in use. Thanks a ton once again.


    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome Hema. I too am in search of a good donut recipe. Last year I tried one and was not completely satisfied. So will post one for sure when I find the best.

  35. Rekha

    Hi Madhuram,

    I came to your website looking for “egg-less cake”, that is not hard like a rock and doesn’t taste like a wood-bark 🙂

    I haven’t tried your recipe yet, but I will.

    In the mean time I checked out your “About” page and it compelled me to write this comment here. I’m not a good cook, but I am a healthy-eater. Mostly don’t cook using any of the Indian recipes, because of health reasons. Anyway, but once in a while I do indulge in less-healthier dishes 🙂

    Good luck with your cooking and thank your for these egg-less recipes; I will visit again, definitely. I’m glad I found your site.

    By the way, Indira’s website has moved – your link is still pointing to old one (I was a regular visitor to Indira’s site)


    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Rekha.

  36. mustardseed

    Loved reading your story! I have visited your blog a couple of times and a lot of people I know have heard about your blog. Your blog is the go to place for finding eggless recipes. There aren’t many blogs as good as yours with successful and delicious eggless recipes. Keep up the wonderful work!

  37. CurryLeaf

    Hi Madhu,
    I have sent an email on your hotmail id. Pls do check and get back. 🙂

  38. Manjeeta

    Hi Madhuram,


    I was looking for ideas on how to cook beet leaves and stems and came across your site. I did not use the recipe but ventured to be creative! I made it with ‘rai’, garlic, ginger, an onion, salt to taste and turmeric. It turned out delicious.

    Thanks for your wonderful website. I relate to what you shared that you watched but did not cook. I did that and recently took out my late mum’s recipes and have been having fun with cooking – that’s a new line :).


    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Manjeeta.

  39. Rachel

    Hello my name is Rachel and I am 12 years old. At 2 I had a cake with eggs in it. I had a reaction to it and we went to the docter. They tested me for allergies and the result said I was allergic to eggs and penuts. I couln’t have any cake,cupcakes or brownies for 10 years. Until one day I came home from school and my grandma showed me your website. I was so happy I was crying. My grandma said she made some “THE BEST CHOCOLATE COOKIES”. I took a bite and fell in love. I have made some by myself and turned out great. I thought my egg allergy would stand in my way of my dream to cook. You have proven that thought wrong. You are a blessing to me Thank you Mrs.Madhuram. Your friend Rachel

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome dear. I’m very happy that you can now pursue your dream of cooking. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to help you. Thank you very much for the feedback.

    Me and my Mom are so excited going through your blog. Both of us are really keen on trying new recipes and we also eat pastries outside but NEVER brought fresh eggs home to try.

    Can’t wait to give a few of your recipes a go will keep you posted on how lovely they turn out.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Nitya and Viji.

  41. Joanne Chua

    Hi Mad,
    I am from Singapore. The fact is I have been experimenting at least 10x for a good sponge cake to make a layered cake for my Master (monk).
    They either turned out to be too milky, too moist & dense or too light & fluffy.
    May I ask, from the pix of the vanilla cake, you mentioned it is good for layered. Is there anyway to make it lighter and fluffier? Otherwise, can I use your cupcake recipe for the cake? Is it too fluffy as in easily breakable?
    Btw, I have been substituting butter to oil, vinegar to lemon, flour to cake flour.
    Kindly advise & definitely thank you so much!

  42. Jade

    I am so glad I found this site, after years of being egg intolerant and never being able to find a good recipe with out eggs that worked well and tasted fantastic, it is almost a godsend that I found this. Thank you so much for creating this site with absolutely delicious recipes! I cannot wait to try them all.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Jade. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding egg free baking. I’ll be glad to help you.

    Hi, I’m an italian Personal Chef with a daughter allergic to eggs. This afternoon I tried your eggless muffins (I made simple vanilla ones without bananas as in the original recipe). They were delicious. Thank you very much for the recipes 🙂

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Daniela.

  44. CWE

    Really this is the most fabulous site I have been to in a long time! My son was just diagnosed with an allergy to egg whites. I don’t do a lot of baking/cooking as it is but I know I’m going to have to start because I can’t trust what is sold in stores. I’m so so thankful you created this!
    My sister in law found your site and sent me here. Truthfully, I was expecting it to be like other sites that say they are eggless, but actually just use processed egg substitutes (which usually still contain some sort of egg in it!).
    Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome CWE. Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your comment.

  45. J

    This is a great site. Not being able to make delicious cakes without eggs is a thing of the past.

    God bless You and Your family.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks J.

  46. Chetana

    Hi Madhuram,
    I just bumped into your eggless world and simply love the site.
    I have never worked with any egg replacer and it makes everything interesting, since I hardly bake any eggless cakes.
    Your site is very clever and interesting, will pick few ideas and post you the results.
    Till then happy baking.

    I have a Onida Microwave-grill-convection at my home. But I donot know how to use it for baking. I am using it for heating only. Any site or advise on how to start baking.

  48. Srimala

    Hi Madhuram,

    Like how you discovered many blogs, in the same way I chanced upon yours. Very nice to know that you have so many wonderful recipes and I have already tried the banana muffins. They are wonderful. Will be trying more 🙂 Keep up the passion 🙂

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for your compliments, Srimala. I’m glad that the banana muffins turned out good for you.

  49. Sarah

    Thanks for these egg free recipe. I’m trying to find a recipe we can use for our sons first birthday coming up. He is allergic to milk, wheat, eggs, peanuts, rice, and pears. Can you possibly recommend a recipe for us? Thanks so much.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Sarah. Allergic to wheat is the biggest challenge. I haven’t tried a lot of gluten free baking especially cakes but for this Gluten-Free, Flourless, Vegan Chocolate Cake. Do Google for gluten free vegan baking recipes and you might come across some useful information.

  50. Kylie

    Thanks for the great site Madhuram. I teach cooking to kids through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Programme. Having just started at a new school with a high focus on New Arrivals to Australia I found majority of the kids do not eat eggs. I did not learn this until after my first class where we cooked QUICHE and eggplant pasta. Thank goodness for the pasta.
    So I am on the path to learn how to cook without eggs. I look forward to using your site regularly.

    Thank you for this doing this website! It means so much to me to find so many recipes to try for my egg-allergic son. I made some brownies for my other kids and I started googling for an eggless brownie recipe so I could make brownies for my egg-allergic son. I found several to try and will do so as soon as I finish typing. I just wanted to thank you for all the eggless recipes. I’ll also be trying some of your cupcake recipes soon also. And others. 🙂 THANK YOU

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Theresa. Do try the recipes and get back to me if you have any questions.

    Hi, hats off to your effort. Today is the first time I am visiting your site. I’m very happy I gained so much knowledge on alternate cooking methods. Will continue to browse your site and learn lots about eggless cooking. Just like you I have been wondering how to make use of the oven.:)

    • Madhuram

      Welcome to my blog Subha. Hope you start using the oven pretty soon.

    Hi Madhuram,
    I am glad I came across your website :-), you’ve put in a lot of effort here which helps a lot of us. Till date I have not baked anything, since I did not have oven back home. Now i want to bake a cake for my husband’s birthday. I have been looking online regarding which type of cake I want to bake. I have shortlisted 3 type of cakes. Checkered cake, topsy turvy cake and swiss roll ice cream cake. I want to bake any one of these without egg. I want to use vanilla and chocolate flavors in my cake. Many of the recipes and bakers say denser the cake, easier it is to handle the cake with cutting and frosting. I need help from you about how make a dense eggless cake. I dont want to use cake mix, because I have read it makes the cake very spongy and crumbles a lot when we cut it. Could you please tell me which of the vanilla cakes from your recipe index is dense and moist or what changes do i need to do to your recipe to get a denser cake. I am thinking since I have 2 months time, I can experiment with just vanilla eggless cake so that I can get some confidence to bake for the big day. 🙂 Your reply will be very much helpful to me.

    Thank you,

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for writing to me Puvi. It’s interesting to note that all your cake choices require quite advanced level skill. Actually I have been thinking of trying a swiss roll cake for quite sometime now. I think you should be trying this Eggless Vanilla Cake. It slices well without crumbling. Try it out and see.

    Hey I was browsing the net for eggless cake recipes and I found your site. I’m dumbstruck seeing your website. Great work. I will definitely try your recipes and let you know.

    • Madhuram

      Welcome to my blog, Nakshatra.

  55. Ami


    Stumbled upon ur site and am so glad for it! Being a Jain I dont use eggs at all; yet being an avid baker am always on the prowl for new eggless recipes.

    My daughter is also into it, and does a great job with brownies and carrot cakes; she takes orders on them and they go like hotcakes!

    Hope to share a lot and learn a lot together!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Ami. Welcome to my blog.

    Hey Madhuram,
    Thanks for the effort and information , Just found you today but will keep coming back

  57. Jaga

    Your site is delicious as your name. I was a pastry chef. That means I quit that profession past 4 years. I wasnt showing much on eggless, but sugarless. Recently I’ve been pushed to know about eggless. Guess what, your site is the first one. I didn’t go to anyother yet. Such an inspirational recipes! You made me to give a thought about going back to pastry. I never thought that eggless makes such a creative journey though I have made products. Well I worked in a commercial place afterall. After I saw your site, and my current boss’s eggless craze, I’m stunned and speechless!
    It may help me in near future. Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      You are very welcome Jaga. Thank you very much for your generous compliments. Coming from a professional and experienced pastry chef it means more and motivates me even more.

  58. Lynda

    Hi there!
    Greetings from Singapore.

    I came across yr site while browsing YouTube for eggless cakes and cupcakes recipes:)
    I’m so glad I found your web becos I am trying to be vegetarian and looking for ways to eliminate eggs from my food and bakes.

    Thank you very much for your sharing. I’m going to try your recipe for the vegan chocolate cookies for my son’s teacher for teacher’s day.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much Lynda.

  59. Shubha Satish

    Hi Madhu,
    Thanks for making my day!
    Now for the story,which will take some of your time.
    I had not decided about the gift & then remembered ur eggless cakes.Checked some of ur recipes & asked for your suggestion.
    My item checklist was done & prompted me to go ahead.Until afternoon,I was still apprehensive of trying it on my own, that too on his birthday & with my ILs.Finally, with a prayer & determination, started the cake.After the batter spread in the tray, I realised that I did not have a cake pan. I tried it to even it but then stopped everything altogether in disappointment.
    But again, I put the tray in the oven. After 20 mins, I felt it was done and switched off the oven. 5 mins later i took it out.
    Then I went out shopping,but did not want to buy the icing for the shapeless cake, instead bought a small cake for my hubby.
    Finally, after some thinking I decided to cut the cake with the help of a round lid and knife. Now I was happy that atleast it looked good.Then I spread a little French Vanilla icecream which was at home.Later my hubby came home & cut the store-bought cake. He said the cake and icing was too sweet & heavy.
    Now for the best part of the story.I presented him my creation. He was very happy that I had baked for him. And his feedback:soft,spongy and tasty!!!
    Now that made me guilt-free , b’cos I didn’t buy any gift for him!
    Thanks again for a sweet & successful day!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for sharing your experience Shubha. Happy Baking. Do feel free to ask any baking questions and I’ll try it answer it to the best of my knowledge.

  60. Shubha Satish

    Hi Madhuram,
    I came across ur delicious website. I must say that I was surprised when I read about u and found some common things.A vegetarian(no garlic,eggs @ home!) ,came to US after marriage(almost 1 & a half years back), now staying in Philadelphia with two loved ones: my wonderful hubby & a handy Magic Bullet! Last year I got a cake as a surprise for my hubby’s b’day. But this year it falls on one of the festivals and I can’t get it. I am thinking of baking a simple beginner cake & put his name on it. Please suggest me one. Thank you very much in advance!

  61. shilpa

    hey madhuram.. m frm india.. new delhi :)m big fan of ur cooking…
    going thru ur recipes.. ven i came across cake flour.. oops.. bt i don hv ne idea from where i wl get it in delhi.. by any chance.. do u hv ne clue. :)tc.. n keep posting more.. luv dem all

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Shilpa. You can use 3/4th cup of all purpose flour (maida) plus 2 tablespoons of white cornstarch in place of 1 cup of cake flour.

  62. dotty

    hello there madhuram, greetings from malaysia! i came across this wonderful site of yours while looking for an eggless cake recipe for a friend…and i was hooked! this is a wonderful site and i hope to see and try some of your recipes soon. keep it up!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much Dotty.

  63. Richa

    I keep coming back to your site for some amazing recipes.. the sheer number, variety and now the new indexing is amazing..

    I was wondering whats stopping you from going completely vegan.. :). You already have a lot of experience in vegan cooking now.. and since it is such a ethical, healthy, environmentally friendly solution, i was hoping that the site will someday transition to that. Milk is full of cholestrol and hormones and has already been deemed not necessary for children. Also it takes 21 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of butter, and 10-15 lbs to 1 b of cheese.. just imagine the amount of dairy cattle we will not need and the calves we will save by eliminating just butter, ghee and cheese.

    Just a thought:)

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for sharing your concern Richa.

  64. sl

    Hi Madhu

  66. charu

    Hi Madhu,
    Im amazed to see a lot of variations in eggless cooking. I
    could relate myself when I saw ur intro. I wantto make waffles
    and mainly pancakes without using eggs. Can u help me out on this.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks Charu. For pancakes, I use about a cup of all purpose flour, a teaspoon of baking powder and little sugar. I keep making some additions like mashed bananas, applesauce etc. I don’t have a waffle iron, so don’t have a go to recipe for that. Maybe you should google and you can get some eggless recipes.

  67. G


    I absolutely love your website. I have tried few recipes like cauliflower fry,
    tofu bake and it was a hit at my home.

    I remember you mentioned somewhere ( I have also visited that website couple of times) that you blog also at a different website. can you pls. mention that websites name . I dont remember that website name but it was awesome(you blog with other bloggers I believe)

    Hi Madhu,
    chance upon your blog when googling for eggless cakes…very informative, full of pictures and interesting blog. FYI I too store my cooking/baking utensils in my dishwasher, never like the dishwasher…will post you on those recipes tried…keep blogging

  70. Selvina

    Dear Madhuram,
    It’s so good to see such a wonderful website full of nice and yummy recipes. My mother is a vegetarian so I feel very bad when I eat or bake nice cakes and mum doesn’t eat. I have only one eggless cake recipe (that i make with semolina)so it becomes quite dull to bake the same thing over and over again. I’m glad that now i got so many recipes to try out. Thanks for the recipes and keep the good job going.
    Take care

    Thank you very much for your feedback Selvina.

  71. Naisha

    Hi Madhuram,

    Thanks a ton for all the mouth watering recipes. I came across your website 1 week back and i have already bookmarked numerous recipes to try. Since then i have been going through your site like crazy. We do eat eggs but these days “sawan” is going on and eggs are not allowed inside house. That made me search for some eggless recipes and i saw your blog. And before that i never knew eggless baking is so simple:-)
    The best part about your recipes is that you test them before posting. Secondly, your “my notes” column. Thirdly, you answer the queries (immediately) if someone has a problem. Everything so properly documented. I think all these things make your site wonderful.
    Btw, I sent a general query regarding flours throught the “contact us” form. I am not sure where to look for it.
    Can you tell me which aluminium free baking powder to you use? I live in Japan. Its difficult to find due to language problem. If you could tell me the brand name you use then i can search for it in International supermarkets. Does baking soda have aluminium traces too?
    Do let me know if its wrong to ask questions here.

    waiting for more amazing recipes…

    Naisha, thank you very much for the good words about my blog. I did send you a reply yesterday itself to your email ID. Please check if the mail has gone to the Junk folder. You can either ask your questions here in the blog and I will reply below your comment itself, or through the contact form and I will reply back with an email. Things are quite hectic at my end and sometimes it may take time for me to get back, but you can be assured that your questions will be answered.

    Regarding baking powder, I have been using the regular baking powder only but am going to switch to aluminum free ones. I read that even though it has not been proven that using baking powder regularly creates any health problems, the taste of baked goods made using aluminum free baking powder is so much better. So I was thinking of buying it this time, since I will be running out of it shortly. I see that Rumford brand is quite popular. I have to check out myself what is available here in Canada. But I do remember seeing something in the organic section too but don’t remember the brand. So maybe you can also check in the organic aisle. After searching for info in the net I understand that baking soda does not contain traces of aluminum because it is plain sodium bicarbonate available naturally and extracted from the ground but some companies do sell aluminum free baking soda at a cost thrice as much as plain baking soda and its a marketing tactics to increase their revenue.

  72. Kelly

    Thank you for your website and recipes. My son is very much allergic to eggs and is turing 2 soon. I used one of your recipes for cake and frosting for my husbands birthday and it was the best feeling to watch him enjoy a dessert that everyone else was eating too. He looked at me and said “yummy”! Everyone else thought it was great and would not have known it did not have eggs except for my son was able to eat some. I am so happy I will have a recipe for his birthday coming up soon! Thank you.

    You’re welcome Kelly. I sincerely appreciate your gesture of taking the time to leave your feedback here. This motivates me to blog more actively.

  73. Vegetarian Yogini

    I am so happy to have found your blog- such a wealth of knowledge and recipes! Will come here often!

  74. Vijaya

    Hi Madhuram,

    I stumbled upon your website a few months ago and have looked at some of your recipes. For some reason, I have become more passionate about baking now that I always have your website open in my computer. I keep looking at different recipes. But today I happened to read about how you started this website and I have to tell you that I am able to completely relate to it – starting from using the oven for making puffs to being a vegetarian and eatings eggs but not cooking them at home. In fact, I have even tried finding a baking class to learn cooking without eggs, because I didnt have much success (until I tried your vegan chocolate cake). But now I have signed up for the Wilton Cake Decorating classes and I am all excited about it – thanks to you :-). Keep up the good work and keep posting new stuff!
    I also have a suggestion – your site is filled with so many recipes that I dont know where to start. There are multiple recipes with different ingredients for the same item (eg. Chocolate cake). It would help if you point out which one is the best, so that first timers can pick the right recipe instead of re-inventing the wheel. I did read somewhere in your posts that your favourites for chocolate cake are “I cant believe its eggless” and “Vegan Chocolate cake” and thats what made me try these. If you point out your outstanding recipes, it would help.

    Vijaya, thank you so much for your detailed comment. Thanks for the suggestion too, maybe I will have a column named My Favorites and list some of the best recipes in there. Also best wishes for enrolling in the Wilton’s classes. Its really very good. Happy Baking!

  75. Emily

    Hi Madhuram,
    I’m so glad to have stumbled upon your blog! My 2 year old daughter has many food allergies (including egg), but since finding your recipes, I’ve been inspired to eat healthier and try some of the ingredients I would otherwise never tried. Thank you for helping my family to live healthier and tastier at the same time!

    Dear Emily, thank you so much for taking the time to give your feedback here. This inspires me as well to blog more.

  76. Prabha

    Hi Madhuram,

    I am visiting your blog for the first time and I am lost in your this yummy blog world… you are amazing! 😉

    Thanks for these varieties……

    Thanks Prabha.

  77. Katrina

    Hi Madhu,
    I stumbled across your site while googling for an eggless cake recipe. My husband and I eat eggs but our 2 1/2 year old daughter Anjali is very allergic to them (also to cow’s milk, tree nuts and peanuts) I am very excited about trying out so many of your recipes. It will open up a whole new world for Anjali and now her Daadi won’t have any excuses not to start baking eggless recipes that she can share with her cousins!
    Thank you!

    You’re welcome Katrina.

  79. Kim

    Thanks so much for the hints! I can tell you that we didn’t use a blender for the Ener-G powder, so we’ll have to do that next time. Our cookies and brownies were like bricks! We definitely prefer chewy cookies. We’ll be trying your recipes soon…thanks again!

    You’re welcome Kim. I haven’t tried brownies with EnerG, but heard from a couple of people that it does’nt turn out good. But I can guarantee you that it works excellent in cookies.

  80. Kim

    Well, I Googled “eggless cake” and feel like I stumbled on a gold mine! My daughter was recently diagnosed with egg allergy, but is also allergic to soy and chicken. I am anxious to try the chocolate cake here, but hope that I can make a substitution for the tofu in it…maybe with plain yogurt? We have tried to use the egg substitute in the box, but it’s made for some very disappointing cookies, they are much too hard and crunchy. I’ve sent my daughter a link to your site. I’m sure she’s going to be interested in the chocolate cake too!

    Kim, yogurt works just fine in that recipe. I have tried that variation too and check that recipe in the following link. https://www.egglesscooking.com/2009/03/23/eggless-chocolate-cake-yogurt/.

    Also I have literally 100% success with Ener G egg replacer powder in cookies. It turns out just fine if a couple of basic tips are followed. You will have to blend the powder with specified amount of warm water in a blender until it is frothy. So warm water and blender are the 2 key things here. If you do that I can assure you that the cookies will turn out perfect. Check the following cookie recipes using Energ.

    https://www.egglesscooking.com/2009/02/09/cranberry-chocolate-chip-cookies/ (these are chewy)

    If you want the cookies to be chewy instead of crunchy just take it out of the oven 2 minutes before the time mentioned in the recipe.

  81. Bhuvanesh

    Hi Madhuram,

    Thanks a lot for creating such a useful blog. I am a veggie but always greedily surrender to cake cravings (eggs u know).
    You have wonderful recipes. My wife has yet to join me in US, but I will try all of your posts here as soon as I can 🙂
    Nice work for veggies. Keep it up.

    You’re welcome Bhuvanesh. Happy Baking.

  86. spice

    Hi Madhuram,

    I’m just a beginner in this blogging world. I like your site. Nice collection. I tried cupcake brownies from your site…came out good, marked few more rec. to try.It’s been almost 4 yrs. that i stopped baking with eggs.Since then i mainly use fruit sauce,milk,condensed milk & buttermilk in the receipes.Sometimes it can be tough but i guess it take little patience & practice to get that good taste without eggs…..and yes it’s worth.

    Welcome to my blog and thank you very much for trying the cupcake brownie recipe. All the best for the new venture.

  87. lakshmi

  89. Tejaswini

    Hello Madhuram!
    For the very first time I have finally found a site that has eggless recipes… I have been googling for a year now and never came across your site…but I’m so happy I did now. Just today I found the recipe of blueberry muffins here and I also tried it…I have never been so excited in my whole life about baking as I did when I saw my muffins…Your recipe is really very good…My husband was amazed at the sight of it….Thank you so much and please keep adding new and amazing recipes

    Lots of love

    Thank you very much Tejaswini. I’m so glad that the muffins turned out very well. Great job! All the recipes from Joy of Vegan Baking (at least the ones I have tried) have never failed me. Give that book a try to become a confident (eggless) baker.

    Hey Madhuram
    You have a wonderful website – a goldmine !!! Hats off to you [:)] I wish i had come across it earlier. My background is very very similar to yours… a south indian [tamilian from madras] – eating habits, lifestyle, love for cooking and baking, husband’s food preferences etc [:)] i am yet to try your recipes… but am very confident that they will come out well. keep up your good work.
    good luck

    That’s so nice of you Swapna. Thanks and keep visiting.

  93. Priyanka

    Hi Madhu,

    I really loved your recepies and I’mlooking forward to try one. I was going through the cake recipies but I could’nt understand
    what is silken tofu. Can you tell me please? Thanks……you rock!!

    Thank you very much Priyanka. Silken tofu is a type of tofu, the others being soft tofu, extra firm and firm. You can get it in regular American grocery stores and Oriental stores. Just get it and put it in the blender and blend it and use 1/4 cup of the puree for each egg to be replaced.

  94. Kaya

    Hi Madhuram,
    you have a very nice site. I am a vegetarian as well and very rarely eat eggs. You have some nice recipes for eggless baking. I recently started my own food blog. I blogrolled you if that is fine. Keep up the good work!!

  95. Gayathri

    Hi Madhu,

    Excellent website. I am glad I found your website. Like the way you were insipired by Indira’s site…I am inspired by yours. I am curious to start up a website on cooking as well..though I am no where near it :mrgreen:. I am collecting recipes..and hoping to start one soon…thanks for the wonderful recipes.


    Thank you very much Gayathri. I’m thrilled to know that you are inspired by my blog. Do get in touch with me if you have any questions regarding starting a blog.

  96. Louche

    Yay! My vegan-wannabe housemate is gonna loooove this! hehehe… (I’m vegan, just not much of a cook, so I love when she just starts using all the recipes I bring home.)

  97. yamini

    hi maduram,

    Sure Yamini. Happy Baking.

  98. parijata

    I’m a college student in California. I love cooking, but only recently became interested in baking. My family is from Karnataka, and my dad is a strict vegetarian (no eggs!). I’ve been searching for and experimenting with vegan dessert cupcakes/quick-bread recipes so I can bake him something delicious that he can actually consume and enjoy! This is an AMAZING website I only discovered it today (when trying to understand why vinegar is used in vegan quick breads) and Ive been on several times since. (Also, very exciting and inspiring to learn you are a south Indian woman!)
    a thousand thumbs up.

    Thank you very much Parijata.

  99. nithya at hungrydesi

    Just clicked here to read your about after leaving a comment on your vadais…my family is also Telegu as we’re originally but Andra but all settled in Tamil Nadu now. So we also speak that mixed version of Tamil and Teluegu!

    That’s really nice to know Nithya.

  100. pooja

    hi madhuram, it was so interesting to read your world of cooking…, I just moved to UK 2 1/2 years back like you i used to always watch mostly food channels in all languages possible now here i watch some food programs but most of them are non-veg like you i think of substituting veggies, but sometimes i get bored because i love spicy food !!, just now i have started baking…., like you i was storing my pans & kadais, but used to cook french fries and of course when i saw the pastry case just like ur hubby i thought of stuffing it with allo masala & vegetable masala i restricted to only that much…., ok keep ur good work…, let me go into your blogging world and see what all wonderful dishes you have in store and i am going to book mark and try them too…, first thing is i want to bake something without the eggs and post it in my blog and send you a note, about checking on me of how i have done.

    Hi Jayasri, that’s really interesting to know that we did a lot of similar stuff.

  105. Wendy

    Thank you so much for your website!!! I have a 5 year old that was diagnosed with a nut and egg allergy at a year old. He starts school next year and will have to take his lunch with him. I have started to look for recipes to give him variety and help expand his taste buds. It is so hard to find eggless recipes now. Plus he loves cakes and cookies but our choices are limited since I didn’t know what to use as a substitute. So thank you so much!!!

    You are very welcome Wendy. Please feel free to ask me any specific questions about egg substitution and the recipes.

  106. egglessinsandiego

    Madhuram….I feel like I’ve just struck gold! Thank you for sharing your incredible recipes with us!! For years I have been searching for healthy and delicious eggless recipes. You should put these recipes into a cookbook and sell it. I would buy it immediately! Thank you for sharing these wonderful recipes with us!

    Thank you very much for your generous compliments.

    Hi Madhu,
    Nice to see your blog and you’re creative too to keep doing something interesting. Wish you all the best..

    Thank you Sir.

  108. Meena V

    Madhuram ….great blog and such creative recipes. I, too, am from suburbs of Philly …do you have any recipes with just yellow cornmeal and soya flour ? It would be much appreciated :))))) MeenaV

    Thank you very much Meena. I usually add soy flour to whole wheat flour while preparing chapathis. But other than that I have not tried any other recipe. Will definitely keep this request in mind when I get it the next time. As for cornmeal, you could either try the vegan cornmeal muffin or the dumplings (kozhukattai).

  109. sowjanya

    Congratulations on your website. That was an amazing write up. I love watching food network just like you. It sounds little weird but we have quite a few similarities. I learnt how to bake (did I tell you that I was using the oven to store everything?)for the first time after coming to US and my first dish was curry puffs 🙂

    Keep up the good work and do keep in touch.

    That’s really something Sowjanya. Thanks.

  110. payal

    thx a lot dear for both inspiration and support from your side….

  111. Anita Asokan

    Hey Madhuram,

    Firstly Congrats on your website!! As one of our class mate mentions and now knowing that you remember there were 2 Anita’s in our class, I’m the other who studied in the A section. I live in New Jersey and what a coincidence, I love to watch food network!!!
    I work full time and I love baking as well. The shows inspired me to bake! So it’s thrilling that we share the same interests.

    I’ve added you in Orkut and more in that!!! I’m currently in Chennai but will be back soon. So we could be in touch over phone!!!

    Great work.
    Best wishes
    Anita Asokan

    Thank you so much Anita. I did see your profile in Orkut but was wondering if you would remember me. That’s bad I didn’t know you live in NJ, I’ve been a couple of times there. Now we are moving. (More about it later).

  112. Lakshmi

    U know what? U girls from India now living abroad r a fantastic bunch. U seem so dedicated about putting good food on the table for your spouses/kids. And you don’t neglect your religious obligations too. Wow. Very inspiring. (I wonder though: Do you ever get tired?) Its a big world out there in cyberspace and I feel like Alice in Wonderland going from one link to another! Keep up the great work. I got inspired to do better veg food after I picked up two great books written by the lovely Viji Varadarajan, a Tamil Brahmin lady from Chennai. I also made contact with her to clear any doubts. Thanks to her I now cook fairly decent dishes for my husband, who is vegetarian. She now has a website as well which you may want to visit. I’m a housewife living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thanks.

    Lakshmi, thank you very much for your detailed comment. I have to agree that I do get tired and bored sometimes, but again comments like these motivate to get back to work. I’ll check out the author’s website you have mentioned.

  113. payal

    i have tried to make another blog which u suggested….egglesscakesnchocolates.wordpress.com….but i cant understand how to operate it properly…..

  116. Dhanya

    Hi Madhuram,
    Me and my husband are also strict vegetarians so when i came to US i started experimenting cakes and cookies without eggs. It was a lot of fun .Looks like we have a lot of things in common.Also i am a cake decorating teacher in US so if you have any questions about the cake classes please feel free to ask.

  117. sathish

    need tips & tricks for making soft idly and Vadakari 🙄

    Will send you an email shortly.

  118. Leah

    Oh thank you sooooo very much for what you are doing here! I have been desperately trying to find good recipes for baking egg free. My son is allergic to eggs and we loved baked goods…he especially loves them. I have mastered the cupcake pretty well…but have failed most other attempts at baking egg-free. I tried your corn muffin recipe this evening for him to go with our chili and it was FANTASTIC!!

    Thank you again, such a life saver…keep up the good work!!

    Leah, thank you very much fo taking the time to leave your comment here. I’m very glad that your son was able to have some corn muffins today. You should try these egg free chocolate chip cookies also. It’s unbelievably good. I’m sure he would love it. Happy egg free baking.

  119. Aparna

    I am a huge fan of yours…! I too came to US after getting married. I too got interested in baking all coz of food network 😀
    Thanks to your site, i’m doing pretty good in eggless baking! 🙂
    Your blog has become my frist reference everyday when i think of a new dish….
    Thanks a lot for posting such beautiful recipes…

    Awww! I’m blushing here! I’m reading this first thing in the morning. What else a girl needs to hear to make her day? Thank you so much Aparna. Happy eggless baking!

  120. Vijaya and Maru

    Hi Madhuram,

    Your website has inspired us to continue our cooking in vegetarian foods! Initially, living in Canada made it incredibly hard for us vegetarians especially when it came ot the sensitive topic of eggs. In my elementary school years, I would avoid all kinds of cake, cookies, biscuits and other delectable food just because of the eggs.

    As I grew up, I also started to experiment with baking cake adn other pastries without eggs. Although some were an absolutely disaster, I realized that it takes time to perfect anything. After seeing your website, my sister and i are absolutely inspired to cook even more! And your pictures, they look absolutely beautiful! Keep it up!


    Vijaya, thank you very much for taking the time to leave your comment here. Also thank you for your kind words of appreciation. The credit for the beautiful pictures goes to my husband. Happy egg free baking!

  121. Kiran

    Hi Just came across your site from some other blog, I read a few of the recipes and then your about page. I am very impressed with your recipes, the amount of research you have done and the wonderful new recipes I am now eager to try out.

    I too look to Sunita’s site for inspiration sometimes.

    We inspire people in many different ways and your energy for the recipes and willingness to experiment with new ingredients is just wonderful. Keep up the good work 🙂

    Hi Kiran, welcome to my blog. Thank you very much for your kind words of appreciation.

  122. Srivalli

    Madhuram, Thats a wonderful and sweet post! Great knowing about you. You may not know but I don’t eat egg and every time I bake, I used to feel left out…then I started making only my eggless black forest cake. anyway now I dont’ have much time for baking..but have bookmarked your entire blog to try when I start back..everything looks so yummy!..Kudos to your hubby too for encouraging you so much!

    Thank you very much Srivalli. Yes my hubby definitely encourages me a lot and spends a lot of time improvising it too. I’m technically challenged, so without him it’s not possible at all.

  123. Purnima

    Madhuram, hi…this is in reply to your mw cake..I have made one frm net (not blog) which turned hard..this cake stays super moist even next day..I used not 200gm condensed milk but 160 gm evaporated milk +40 gm fine white sugar, I did not need coke/juice to damp it. If you are trying it do try it this way..skip the frosting first time if you want, it tastes real good n wd recommend u to go for it, as it takes very little time! 😀 Also would like to add here that your blog is truly going great with vegan/eggless/chock full of health recipes! KEEP IT UP…great for blogging readers like me! 😀 HUGS.

    Purnima thank you very much for the detailed information. I’ll try it one of these days. Thank you for your kind words about my blog also.

  124. Navita

  127. Rashmi

    Dear Madhu,
    It is so lovely to read about you and get to know you better. Your baking journey is heartwarming and humorous at the same time, and clangs a loud bell with people like me, who share a similar attitude to eggs and baking:)
    The only difference is, unlike you, I have’nt yet taken the initiative to try baking, as I am a bit paranoid about my son ( who has a tremendous sweet tooth) becoming a sugar addict.So, although we do enjoy sweet treats from time to time, I make sure that the real good stuff is not terribly accesible to us all;)
    Your blog is truly path breaking and inspiring, best wishes to you, your family and the blog. Rock On !

  128. hemamalini

    hi madhu its very intrsting to go thro yr exp in USA. But very soon u ve developed yr blog like anything. Yr stuffs are delish and inviting. kalakaringa ponga. hats off.

    hi madhuram,do u known ur inspiring so many people like me .u have wonderful blog.i too have tried eggless cakes from ur blog last week it came well.first time i baked a cake in my microwave,Thx for sharing such a simple and cute blog.

    Thank you very much Pavani for your kind words about my blog. The encouragment from fellow bloggers and foodies motivates me a lot.

  130. Terry Ginter

    I was happy when I came across your eggless baking site. My 15 month old son has an egg and peanut allergy so I am always trying to find good recipes for things for him to enjoy. We no longer have eggs in our home so it is nice to find different egg substitutes. I have tried using banana, which works really well in pancakes, but not very well in cookies. I will try the flaxseed and water one the next time I am baking. Thanks for the great ideas and recipes.

    You’re welcome Terry. I’m really glad that my site will be of some help to you. Silken tofu also is an excellent egg substitute. I recently tried it in my chocolate cake for my son’s birthday and it was a hit. You can check it out here https://www.egglesscooking.com/2008/08/25/eggless-chocolate-cake/

  131. shobana

    Hi Madhuram, That was an interesting series of events that led to the creation of your blog. Eggless cooking….hmmm…thats really interesting…and with so many breads and buns on your recipe list, I am looking forward to visiting here often.

  143. Madhuram

    Thanks very much Anusharaji. It’s such a lovely comment and means so much to me.

    Thanks for stopping by Anjali. Sorry about your friend’s daughter. I can understand how difficult it is for both of them. Please ask your friend to drop by and try the recipes. I will be updating the “eggless baking recipes” page regularly. Most of the recipes are from various other blogs and the bloggers have done a wonderful job of recording step by step pictures also.

  144. Anjali Damerla

    Hi Madhuram,

    Came to you from ifood.tv.
    Your site is interesting. I have friend whose 4 yr daughter is terribly allergic to eggs, nuts & besan. Every year for her birthday, her mom has a tough time baking a nice cake. You can’t explain to a 4 yr old that the yummy looking cake in the grocery store is not for her 🙁

    I will definitely let my friend know abt your site. Looks like you have a variety of recipes for cakes, etc. Very good site.


  145. anusharaji

    couldnt believe how you learned baking n yet come up with such great recipes
    keep posting
    luv eggless

  146. Madhuram

    Thank you very much Laksh. Enna treasure ellam solli enna midhakka vakareenga!

  147. Laksh

    Very enjoyable read! Love to see how you morphed from a foodie at heart to one that actually tries things out. Your blog is a treasure!

  148. Madhuram

    Thank you very much Harini. That’s such a lovely compliment, I’m flattered. Actually I was inspired by so many other food bloggers, that I started one of my own. Happy Eggless Baking!

  149. Harini

    Did anyone tell you how inspiring you are?? I am Harini blogging as sunshinemom and just loved your eggless bakes! I have quit eggs for sometime now(The family hasn’t) but I love cakes esp. homemade. Linked you to me so selfishly – just so I could keep trying your cakes.

Thank you for sharing. Like us to stay in touch with the latest updates from Eggless Cooking.
