This Perfect Eggless Lemon Cream Cheese Cake is for you!!

By Apurvi Bansal

Today we are baking an Eggless Lemon Cream Cheese Cake which is a delightful dessert that combines the zesty flavours of lemon with the creamy richness of cream cheese in our cake base layer, while the whipped cream and lemon curd frosting adds a tangy and refreshing touch. It’s perfect for any occasion.

I have prepared the cake base in a sheet form and have not added baking powder or baking soda but if you want you can add them I’ll give the measurement in the description box below,

Always sieve your dry ingredients before adding especially if you are making an eggless recipe also while mixing the batter keep in mind to not over mix your batter mix it only until you see there is no flour visible than pour it in your baking tin tap it to release any trapped air bubble and bake it in the pre-heated oven.

Baking time given in the recipe is only a reference start from the low range of given time that is if a recipe says bake it for 7-10 minutes then bake it Frost for 7 minutes then check if your cake is done by inserting a skewer in the middle if it comes out clean than your cake is done if not,

Then bake it for a minute more as baking time differs from oven to oven like here, I am baking it in an air fryer so it took me 7 minutes.

But if I had bake it in my convection then it would have taken me 8 minutes to bake this sponge so us this baking time as a guidance.
