Eggless Orange Cake

Hello Foodies !!! When its comes to cakes, I somehow have a special love towards the eggless cakes !! So the story started such that, there were quite some oranges in the fridge, and was thinking what to do with it 😀 And at the same time there was a theme on my FB food group… So thought this would be an apt way to use it, Trying this for the first time, but was actually surprised by the moistness and airy feel the cake had being an eggless one. This one’s a keeper recipe.. bake it and serve at tea time, and be the talk of the town 😉 I thoroughly enjoyed this and hope you do it too 🙂 Maybe next time I will try a healthier version with whole wheat 😀

  • 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 tin.

  • When done, take it out and give a rest of 2 minutes in the tin, then demold and cool on a cooling rack.
  • Once the cake is completely cooled, Slice it and serve.
