Eggless Marble Bundt Cake

I have been receiving quite a few requests to post recipes of eggless cakes especially an eggless marble bundt cake. Quite a few readers tried the marble bundt cake recipe with eggs that I posted a couple of months ago and gave positive feedback. I modified the marble bundt cake recipe by replacing eggs with buttermilk (mixture of warm milk and apple cider vinegar) and banana puree and used oil instead of butter.

The cake is not only visually appealing with the beautiful white and chocolate swirls but also appetizing with a moist and tender crumb. I did not adorn the cake but you can drizzle some ganache or chocolate syrup. A perfect cake to bake for a special occassion. I baked it to celebrate Sailu’s Kitchen Facebook page surpassing half a million likes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Eggless Marble Bundt Cake

  Prepare time:
 Serves: 12

 Main Ingredients:

  •  flour
  •   sugar


  •   All purpose flour - 2 cups (I used maida)
  •   Baking powder - 1 1/4 tsps
  •   Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  •   Salt - 1/2 tsp
  •   Oil - 1/2 cup
  •   Sugar - 3/4 cup + 1 1/2 tbsps, superfine or coarsely powdered, divided
  •   Banana puree - 1/4 cup
  •   Yogurt - 1/4 cup
  •   Milk - 1 cup, luke warm
  •   Apple cider vingar - 3/4 tbsp (or white vinegar or lemon juice)
  •   Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  •   Cocoa powder - 1/3 cup (dutch processed)
  •   Hot water - 1/4 cup
  •   Instant coffee powder - 1 tbsp
  •   Almond extract - 1/4 tsp

Method for making Eggless Marble Bundt Cake

Preheat oven to 160 C and position a rack in the center of the oven. Grease the bundt pan thoroughly including the creases and flour it well and tap out the excess flour.
In a small bowl, add the hot water, instant coffee powder, cocoa powder and 2 tbsps sugar and mix till smooth with no lumps. Add almond extract and mix. Set aside to cool.
Add vinegar to luke warm milk and set aside till use. This is called buttermilk which is used for baking.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In large bowl, add the oil and superfine sugar and beat till the sugar is well combined. Add the banana puree, yogurt, prepared buttermilk and vanilla extract and mix till combined.
Gradually add the flour in four additions and mix until just combined and smooth.
Transfer a little less than half of the cake batter to the cocoa mixture and mix with a spoon until smooth.
With the help of a large spoon, alternate scoops of the vanilla and chocolate batters into the pan. Take a chopstick and create a swirl all through the batters taking care not to touch the sides of the pan. Smooth the top lightly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 mts till a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Check from 40 mts onwards. Cool on a wire cake rack for 10 mts and invert the cake onto the rack to cool completely.


  •   How to grease and flour a bundt pan - Grease the bundt pan with shortening or melted butter. Shortening is best. With a pastry brush grease the pan and see that all the crevices are well greased. Add 1/3 cup of flour to the pan and cover the pan with a plastic wrap. Shake the pan well such that the pan is coated with flour especially the center cone. Remove the plastic wrap and tap the pan upside down and remove the excess flour. If you find that a few spots are not covered with flour, lightly grease those spots and again dust it with flour and remove all the excess flour.
  •   Do not fill more than 3/4 th of the cake pan with cake batter.
  •   You can increase sugar by another 2 tbsps. Since I have added banana puree I have reduced sugar.
  •   I have used a 10 cup bundt pan. You can also use an 8 cup bundt pan. It means your bundt pan should be able to hold 8 or 10 cups of water (filled to the brim).

    how do you make banana puree?

    • Sailu | Indian Food

      Peel and mash a very ripe banana using the back of a wooden or stainless steel ladle. Or you can blend in a mixer grinder.
