When I think of eggless cakes, I think of a dense brownie like cake, because how can you make a “real” cake without eggs, right? Â Wrong! Â There is this amazing yellow cake called Sfoof that my mom always makes. You can also find it at many Lebanese, Greek, Turkish, and even Albanian bakeries! Â It’s really simple to make with only a few ingredients, but it’s fluffy, sweet and tastes great with tea!

The thing that makes this cake yellow is the turmeric that’s added to it. It’s added for flavor and for color. And recently all of the amazing health benefits of turmeric, make this cake even more popular.

I like to sprinkle pine nuts on top, but if you don’t like nuts you can leave them off, or you can use walnuts or pecans instead. I let it cool completely before cutting it up. Â And it’s so simple to make when you’re in a pinch and you need a quick fast dessert.

I learned a trick from my mom to make sure that the top of the cake stays glossy, right when you take it out of the oven, spray it with some olive oil or vegetable spray, it will give it a nice shine. Â Give this cake a try, you will surprisingly love it, and it’s eggless for those with egg allergies. Â And don’t forget the tea! Click here for the recipe!
