Orange Cake Recipe.

Orange cake is very easy to prepare and the most important its an eggless cake. Its very light, fluffy & moist.

Ingredients :

I have divided the ingredients list into two parts- the dry & wet ingredients. This way it will be easy for you to follow.

Dry ingredients:

➧ 1¹/₂ Cups All Purpose flour/Maida/Plain flour
➧ 1¹/₂ Tsp. Baking Powder
➧ ¹/₂ Tsp. Baking Soda 

Wet ingredients : 

➧ ³/₄ Cup White granulated sugar
➧ ³/₄ Cup Thick Yogurt (at room temperature)
➧ ¹/₂  Cup Vegetable Oil
➧ ¹/₂  Cup Orange juice (Freshly squeezed)
➧ 1 Tsp. Orange Zest 


First, preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease & flour the baking tin of 7" diameter, if you want, line with parchment paper/Butter paper. I took a loaf tin.

Sieve the dry ingredients together at least 3 times and keep aside, this gives more aeration in the flour and helps in making the cake light.

In other bowl mix sugar + yogurt and whisk nicely, you will get a very nice texture. To this add orange juice, oil and orange zest, and mix. After they are well combined add the dry ingredients and fold in gently.

Pour the batter in the tin.

Bake it on the middle rack for 35-40 mins or unless a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Mine took exactly 40 minutes. But keep checking after 35 minutes as every oven varies as per the power.

When done, take it out and give a rest of 2 minutes in the tin, then demold and cool on a cooling rack.
