Orange Cake




Baking, Cake, Cakes & Frostings, Orange, Orange cake, Christmas, cream, Desserts & Sweets, eggs, festivals, Flour, sprinkles,


Today I am going to discuss with u rather a simpler variety - Orange cake. Orange cake is one of the favorite cakes of mine. The natural orange taste in it makes it really special. Although old fashioned but still its best to have as a snack. It has more of a texture of a pound cake. Rich, moist and incredibly mouth-watering light fluffy dessert, which I love to bake. It has light yellow color due to the fresh orange juice added in it. This citrusy cake brings warmth and flavor to its utmost. This was one of the easiest & best cakes u can have which is extremely soft and have a powerful flavor of orange. The timing is really tricky while u r planning to bake a cake. Always remember to use ingredients at room temperature and do not over-mix + over-bake it. This might result in a dry & messy cake. Follow the instructions word to word and you will find yourself on the perfect side in baking a cake. 

This is a strictly NO vanilla extract recipe. Why waste the taste of fresh oranges? 

To bake a cake at home is not a difficult task! Here is an easy recipe. Don't think! Just get up to try :)

Ingredients:


Unsalted Butter                                               1/2 cup

Fresh orange juice                                           1/3 cup
Baking Powder                                               1 tsp
