Featherlight Vanilla Cake (using a sandwich maker)

Quick cake for a snack - delicious as is or drizzled with Chocolate Syrup !

Featherlight Vanilla Cake made in the sandwich maker in less than 15 minutes ! That is genius, don't you think?

At first I thought, no ways, the batter will be all over the place, but it was not and all 12 pieces came out extremely light and totally delicious.

The prepping takes about 5 minutes, with ingredients you should have in your pantry. Each batch took 3 - 4 minutes, therefore only minutes later we had a delightful snack.

I found this recipe shared on Facebook and immediately clicked over to the original site, which you can find HERE .

Featherlight Vanilla Cake (using a sandwich maker)

12 Servings


1 Cup Flour
1 t Baking Powder
1/2 cup Oil
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
2 Extra-Large Eggs
1 t Vanilla Essence

Icing Sugar, to dust (optional)


1.) Spray the sandwich maker top and bottom with cooking oil - Depending on how long your sandwich maker takes to heat up - you can switch it on now.
2.) Sift together the Flour and Baking Powder - set aside.
3.) Beat the Oil and Caster Sugar together until creamy - add the Eggs and Vanilla - beat another minute or two until well combined.
4.) Fold in the Flour to the Oil mixture.
5.) Fill each triangle of your sandwich maker, but do not let it overflow - close and check after 3 minutes, if a toothpick comes out clean, it is ready - remove and let cool slightly on a cooling rack - dust with Icing Sugar if you wish to.

Cool a little, dust with Icing Sugar as soon as possible

Best served warm - you can make it ahead of time and re-heat in the microwave for a few seconds.

I am most definitely going to experiment with flavors and above all with chocolate chips, and maybe drizzled Icing or Chocolate over ?? ...

  1. That's an awesome idea, portion control and great for Summer when you dont want the oven on!

  2. Totally genius! Now I need to find a sandwich maker!! I wonder if these could be used like shortcakes for strawberry shortcake? Do you have that there?

  3. I wish I'd kept my sandwich maker...I may need to look for one again. What a great idea.

  4. What a nifty idea! I had a sandwich maker years ago, but never used it so I got rid of it! I never thought to make something like this!

  5. What a great idea! I love it! What a fun way to present your cake, and eat it too!

  21. I love this cake idea! Thanks for sharing your link at my link party last weekend @The Weekend re-Treat

  22. What a great idea! Thanks for submitting it to the Crafty Showcase! xoxo susie @bowdabra

    Ps- here is the newest linky! We have a new Button!

  23. Wander if you can use regular cake mix ??? I was also thinking about just using the waffle iron and putting them on little plates for kids to decorate their own. Great Ideas glad I found this site.

  24. Is this the thickness of a cake batter as it has eggs and oil and lots of flavors? Would love to hear if anyone has tried that. What is that sugar you used? And where do you get it? The cakes look wonderful and would love to try them your way. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Rhonda, this specific recipe's batter is a little thinner than plain cake batter, which of course also works just fine in the sandwich maker. Caster Sugar is finer than granulated sugar, but not as fine as powdered sugar {icing sugar} - I get ours in SA, in the store's baking aisle - replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment :) Also see this recipe :
