Delicious One-Egg Cake: A Timeless Recipe for the Perfect Dessert

The Beauty of the One-Egg Cake

One-egg cakes have always been a delight. Their simplicity is their strength, and they have been a favorite for many generations. Whether you’re a novice baker or a seasoned pro, a one-egg cake is the perfect recipe to have in your repertoire. With various recipes available from top baking websites like Food.com, 12 Tomatoes, and Bryant Baking, there’s certainly a version that will tickle your taste buds.


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil or shortening
  • 1 cup milk (Plus an additional 1/3 cup for some recipes)
  • 1 egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Lemon flavoring (Optional)
  • Cinnamon Spice Variant: 1 tablespoon cinnamon + 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Coffee Cake Variant: 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee

Baking powder (ad) is one of the key ingredients that gives this cake its light and fluffy texture.


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). For some variations, you might need to set the oven to 375°F.
  • Grease and flour your choice of pan. Most commonly used is a 9-inch x 9-inch pan or an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • Cut in the butter or shortening until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This step may vary based on the specific recipe variation.
  • Stir in the egg, followed by the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the milk and the dry ingredients, alternating between the two and mixing well after each addition.
  • If you’re making a flavored variant, like the cinnamon spice or coffee cake, add the respective ingredients now.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool before serving. Enjoy!
