EGGLESS ORANGE CAKE




So it is my Love's birthday and I decided to make the Orange Cake. I enjoy baking cakes as they are easy to make. Basically just need assembling of ingredients and proper measurements and you are good to go. 

I have recently started baking and love every aspect of it. Especially the aroma, the whole house start smelling heavenly. The only challenge I face is to bake a super moist spongy cake without eggs.That's where most of the recipes fail. But trust me this is the   NO FAIL RECIPE. The cake turns out melt in mouth texture. I enjoyed the citrusy punch of orange bites in it. In all, it is a good eggless cake and a must try for those who are new bees in baking. Super easy cake with very fewer ingredients.


EGGLESS ORANGE CAKE 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (Substitute: All purpose flour)

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • 1/2 can of  Sweetened Condensed milk (I used a 14oz can) 
  • 1/2 cup Salted Butter 
  • 1/2 cup Oranges cut into small pieces (I used canned oranges)
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice (I used the juice of canned oranges)

METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven at 325 F ( Approx. 165 C ). Grease the 9-inch classic square  cake pan. You can use round pan too.
  • In a large bowl sift the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder and baking soda). Mix it all well.
  • Now start adding the wet ingredients. Add 1/2 cup orange pieces, 1/2 cup orange juice and salted butter.
  • Fold in everything gently and make sure everything is well combined. Do not use a hand blender. 
  • Transfer the cake batter in the baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Last 5 minutes are crucial so keep an eye on it. 
  •  Insert  a toothpick in the centre of the cake to check if it is done completely. It should come out dry and clean.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it cool down in the pan for 15 minutes. 
  • Run a knife between the pan and the cake and turn the cake upside down on the wire rack. 
  • Now brush the bottom of the cake with leftover orange juice to keep the cake soft. 
  • Top the cake with whipping cream and garnish it with slices of oranges. 

STEP BY STEP WITH PICTURES 


 In a large bowl sift the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder and baking soda). Mix it all well.
Drain the Orange. Save the juice for later use.

Tap the baking sheet to evenly distribute the batter

Brush the leftover orange juice on the cake to keep it moist.

NOTE:

  • I used a 20 oz can of oranges. Drain the oranges using a strainer. Save the juice as we will be using it in the preparation. 
  • I substituted the white flour with Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.
