Eggless Orange Cake

Ingredients

All purpose flour/Maida - 1 1/4 cup

Baking powder -1/2 tsp

Baking soda -1/2 tsp

Butter (unsalted) -113 grams / 1/2 cup

Condensed milk - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 3 tbsp

Orange juice - 1/2 cup (I used fresh orange juice)

Vanilla essence or orange essence - 1 tsp

Orange zest - 1 tsp

Vinegar or lemon juice - 1 tsp

Preparation

1.Preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 15 minutes.Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda together twice.Grease the baking pan with little butter and dust flour. I used a 7 inch square baking tray.Grate the skin of orange for orange zest. Do not grate the white skin inside as they will be very bitter.

2.Keep all the things needed ready as it will make baking much easier and saves a lot of time and mess. Bring everything to room temperature.In a bowl, combine condensed milk, butter, sugar, vanilla essence and beat until well mixed.

3.Add half of the maida and fold gently using a wooden spatula. Add half of the orange juice and mix gently.Add the remaining maida, orange juice, orange zest, lemon juice and fold gently until everything is well mixed. Pour the batter in a greased and floured baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes (180 degree C) in a preheated oven or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.Bake in a preheated oven until done.
