EGGLESS ORANGE FLAVOURED SPONGE CAKE

Baking Beginner Recipe

     As mentioned in my first baking recipe, my friends gifted me a baking oven , and one among them told me to bake a cake for her birthday. I was little tensed but with little courage i tried Prathiba's Orange Cake , which was tried by Raks too. This came out extremely perfect and i can suggest this recipe for Beginners, like me. My friend who celebrated her birthday was totally impressed by the outcome of the cake and i made this for my friend’s kids again on their continuous request.

INGREDIENTS:

ALL PURPOSE FLOUR/MAIDA 1 AND 1/4 CUP
BUTTER/OIL 1/2 CUP(I TRIED BOTH VERSION)
ORANGE JUICE 1/2 CUP
POWDERED SUGAR 3 TBLSP
CONDENSED MILK 1 CAN
BAKING POWDER 1 TSP
BAKING SODA 1/2 TSP
ORANGE ZEST 1/2 TSP
LEMON JUICE/APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR 1 TSP
VANILLA ESSENCE 1TSP

ORANGE CAKE

METHOD:

  • Pre heat the oven @180 degree C for 10 mins.
  • Sift the baking powder, baking soda and the All purpose flour to ensure even mixing.

  • In a bowl, whisk the condensed milk,orange juice, powdered sugar,butter(keep in room temp) or oil(if using) , vanilla essence, lemon juice until they are mixed up well.

  • Grease the baking  pan with butter and dust it with little flour.

  • Make a dent in the flour mix and pour in the whisked wet ingredients.
  • Mix well until it is perfectly mixed without any lumps.
  • Add orange zest and mix it.

  • Pour this on the greased tin and tap it gently to remove air bubbles if any.
  • Bake this for 25-30 mins until the crust turns into nice golden brown colour or insert a tooth pick in the center of the cake and it should come out clean.
  • Mine got baked in 22 minutes.

  • Take out from the oven and after 2 mins invert them in a wire rack and allow it to cool for few minutes.
  • make it into small squares and can be stored in air tight containers.
  • My kids and my friend’s kids didn’t give any chance for that. The cake got over in 5 mins.

Orange cake

Note:

  1. I used both the version of adding oil and butter. Both turned out so good.
  2. I took juice from fresh oranges and if ur using store bought orange juice, reduce the quantity of sugar to 1 tblsp.

    3. Orange Zest is the outer skin of the orange. You can just chop it into fine pieces and add 1/2 tsp to the batter
