Eggless Rainbow Cake Recipe

Hey all how are I am scheduling this post hopefully I might be flying in air to some were when this post is up, He he You'll know soon were I am. I have been missing bm a lot and have always been waiting for mega marathon , when valli announced that it is going to be baking theme for April I really couldn't resist myself from participating and so here I am again doing mega marathon. Last month Bm scored Half century and these girls had so much fun with the meet I was so jealous to see them do all the activities hope I was there to learn some techniques from the pros. Ok now coming to the day 1 Bm #51 , I sincerely apology as for every time I do Bm I am always in a hurry to do it for some reason so some might have photography faults , some may have appealing flaws . I started baking without thinking about any theme and here I am with a theme now. I made lots and lots of cookies first and then cakes too I also baked 2-3 breads but after seeing the huge cookies and cakes I changed My mind to just post cookies and cakes for the marathon so now you know I start with no planning :P Also It is not at all easy to bake every day I bakes only 2 weeks before , For baking for more easier than finishing all the baked goodies I had to share every thing with friends and those poor faithful friends who can't hurt me and say no anytime had to take all the bakes I gave them. So proud of them , they are really brave hearts ;).. One of Our friend invited us for dinner and I just went to kitchen and started baking so that I can share the cake with them.They liked the cake and I was phewww one task accomplished.

For day 1 I chose to post a celebrating and colorful cake for the Crossing Bm 50 and stepping up to the next milestone , hearty congrats to all bm members. 6 layer Rainbow cake was in my to do list and I took this opportunity to bake this fabulous cake with is completely eggless and yes if you have only 1-2 pans of similar size then you need have little patience to enjoy the cake. I had 2 pans only and so had to bake the cakes in batches with took me half a day then comes the decorating part. I have kept it simple from out as it excessively filled with colors inside. Now moving on to the recipe and stay tuned for some baking recipes this month.

1 hr
  3 hrs
  ( Recipe is for 2 cakes , make the same for 4 more cakes) 

Baking marathon Recipe

  All purpose flour - 1 cup
  Yogurt - 1/2 cup
  Sugar - 1/2 cup
  Baking pd - 1 tsp
  Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  Milk - 1/4 cup ( if needed)
  Vanilla extract - few drops 
  Oil - 1/4 cup
  Food colors - few drops ( Red, Orange, Yellow,Blue,Green, Purple)
  Butter cream frosting 

  • Pre heat the oven at 350 C and grease 2  6" pan with butter and dust some flour.
  • In a bowl sieve Flour, baking pd , baking soda and keep it aside.
  • In another bowl take yogurt,sugar, oil and mix them well.
  • Now slowly add wet ingredient to dry ingredient and mix them. 
  • After they are well combined divide them to two parts and add purple and blue in each part respectively.
  • Transfer them to greased pan and bake at 350 C for 30-40 mins till the tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  • As I had only 2 pans of same size I baked the cakes in batches with different color dyes. So they measurement given is for 2 cakes and the same manner we have to bake rest of the 4 colored cakes.
  • Cool the cake for 5 mins in the pan and them invert it upside down.
  • Cool the cake complete on a wire rack , the cake has to be cool completely  before the frosting is on. If any dome formation then cut the cake.
  • Once the cakes cook, take a steady cake tray which can fit in your fridge and apply a dolpe of frosting on that place the purple cake them some frosting and stack all the other colors as shown in the pic.
  • Give the whole cake a crumb coat and refrigerate it for 30 mins . Then take out and give the final coat.
  • If you wish you can decorate the cake with M &M's and sprinklers. 
  • I would recommend to leave the cake to set over nite in the fridge and cutting a slice to get the clean cut , I had no time to rest so had to cut the same day.
