Eggless Ovaltine Cake

Ovaltine? What? What is this? I've never even heard of it? My spell check is even freaking out!

Don't worry, I've never heard of it until my mom bought a whole truckload, and told me to try it out. Apparently it's big in the Philippines: where she's from, so it was a little taste of home for her.

Despite the fact that this cake has no eggs or butter in it, it was still very moist and spongy. And it was gone in a day, I'm not going to lie. Even though I am actually addicted to things sweet: I have the biggest sweet tooth ever, I really enjoyed this cake even though it wasn't that sweet.

Even the raisin haters liked this cake. It was an all-round success!

  1. I love desserts that are not overly sweet. Ovaltine of course I know what that is, I am Filipino. My favorite was always Milo, Ovaltine's counterpart, but the two are really not much different.

    1. Hmm.. I do have a lot of Milo at my house, I might make something with that too!

  2. I have seen Ovaltine at the store, but never bought it. Now I have a reason too!

  3. Ovaltine was a huge favorite of my they are adults, and my son still loves to mix it in milk...I'm not crazy about the "malted" flavor, but the cake sure looks moist and delicious!

  4. This does sound very interesting and you have got me intrigued about ovaltine now!

  5. I love how this is in your breakfast category :D
    Loving going through your blog!

  6. We inhale Ovaltine in our house. My mom introduced it to us years ago - when my kids are sick, and won't eat, I can always convince them to have a glass! It's nice in warm milk too.

  7. We always had Ovaltine as kids. I haven't had it in years. I bet I would enjoy this cake!

  8. I do know what Ovaltine is...I drank it growing-up (smile). Its perfect flavoring for a cake, adds nutrition too. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.


  9. My grandparents would give me ovaltine when I was growing up. It seems like a great flavor for a cake. I'll have to give it a try.

  10. What a fun recipe! I remember Ovaltine!

  11. Now Ovaltine I do know! This sounds just wonderful. I am a raisin hater but if the cake or muffin is just fantastic I'm all about the raisins that it encases! Great recipe!!

  12. Thanks for you comment over at Home is Where The Cookies Are! Had to say something. . . Ovaltine is a favorite "Thing" in our house. It's been around since our first kiddo refused to drink plain milk when he was a toddler. Our doc told us a little Ovaltine in his milk was better than no milk at all, so it's been a staple ever since! Love it!

  13. This looks so good... ovaltine is kind of market out here but I will try this with milo, without the raisins, of course...
