Ed Sheeran once said, “Loving can hurt.”
But that’s not always true - at least not in the case of cakes!
If someone tells you they don’t like cakes, they’re perhaps making a misstatement. No one hates “eating” a cake. But those who despise cooking surely do loathe “baking” a cake. After all, you’ve got to have all the ingredients, get each of the measurements right, and keep a close watch on every ticking minute. And if all this was not enough, you also have to make sure you’re adding just the right number of eggs into the batter. A little here and there and pff - all that effort landing straight into the bin.
But hey, today we are here to prove Ed wrong. So if you love eating cakes but the idea of baking one sends chills down your spine, try these 2-egg cake recipes and see why we say - loving can be easy too.

In reality, the marble cake is actually pretty easy to make. Simply prepare a vanilla sponge cake batter with two eggs, put a quarter of it aside and mix some cocoa powder in it, and then dribble it on top of the remaining batch of the batter. Use a toothpick to create wavy designs in the batter and then let it bake. Your 2-egg marble cake is ready!
3. Coffee Almond Cake

4. Blueberry Sponge Cake
Speaking of fruits, let’s appreciate one of the most beautiful potpourris in the world of confectionary - blueberries with vanilla!

We bet you won’t look at cakes the same way ever again.
5. Lemon Cake
Do you know why lemon cakes are a hit? Not only because they have a peculiarly refreshing flavour that sets them apart from the tribe of awfully sweet desserts.

What feels illegal but isn’t? Writing a blog on classic 2-egg cake recipes and not mentioning chocolate cake.
Moist, gooey, and oh so chocolatey - if there’s something close to the feeling of nirvana, it’s indulging in a slice of chocolate cake.

7. Rose Cake
“Rose cakes? They must be joking!” Well no, we aren’t - rose-flavoured cakes are a thing and thank God for that. Mildly sweet and enchantingly scented, this delish cake can even be made eggless or vegan. But if you enjoy the luxury of using eggs in baking and like your cakes extra spongy and velvety, just smash two eggs into the bat
8. Carrot Cake
The fact that February the 3rd is celebrated as National Carrot Cake Day in the US itself speaks volumes about how much this dessert is loved by all. Part of the reason is that this particular cake flavour is a one-way ticket to childhood nostalgia. But the other very strong reason is that this cake is very easy and quick to make. Sieve two cups of flour, add melted butter, milk, shredded carrots, vanilla essence, powdered sugar, two beaten eggs, and that’s all. Did it even feel like doing something? Nope.
9. Peanut Butterscotch Cake
Everyone fancies a spoonful of creamy peanut butter on their toast. But we bet - this 2 egg peanut butterscotch cake will become the new reason why your family loves peanuts. Crunchy and buttery, the texture of this cake resembles crisp peanut butter cookies dunked in butterscotch ice cream. In fact, if you’re someone who hits the gym every day, there’s nothing better than this sweet treat for you. Packed with protein from eggs and peanuts, beat those little pangs of post-workout hunger with two slices of this cake and there - that’s guilt-free eating without compromising on the taste!
10. Christmas Rum Cake
Christmas cakes are addictive. You have one slice and before you know it, your hand travels down and picks another one for you.
