Eggless Orange Cake | Bakery Style Eggless Plain Cake

During our childhood days, Cake was a luxurious treat for us. Rarely we had a chance to eat the bakery products like cakes, so it felt like cakes were the most delicious food when compared with whatever Mum made at home with all the love! Gone are those days and now, many of us have ovens at home and its easy to prepare cakes or other bakery food whenever we feel like.
I often prepare varieties of eggless cakes at home. When kids are at home, how much ever snacks I prepare, they all vanish so quickly! My daughter loves to eat cake for her evening snacks. Eggless Vanilla Cake and Eggless Chocolate Cake were here favourites before. And when we found this way of making Eggless Orange Cake, this cake has become her favourite now!
I just tried to follow the technique of Hot Milk Cake while preparing my Eggless Orange Cake and the result was - Wow! My eggless loaf turned out to be the most delicious one with a soft, airy, moist texture. It tastes the same like Iyengar Bakery Plain cakes. 
Below is the recipe of Eggless Orange Cake for you all:


Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 25 - 30 minutes
Difficulty level: medium
Serves: 1 loaf cake

Ingredients:
  • All purpose flour (Maida) - 1 1/2 cup (Or you can use Maida and wheat flour in 50:50 ratio)
  • Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/8 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Fresh orange juice - 1/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1/3 cup
  • Orange zest - 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Curd - 1/4 cup
  • Oil - 1/2 cup

Recipe Instructions:
  • Preheat the oven to 175C.
  • Grease the baking pan with oil, dust it lightly with flour and line it with baking paper. 
  • Sieve together flour, baking powder and baking soda 2 - 3 times.
  • Mix together sugar, salt and curd in a bowl.
  • Once sugar is dissolved completely in the mixture, add orange juice, zest and oil. Mix it well.
  • Fold in the flour in small batches and mix it gently. 
  • Add the hot milk to the batter little by little and bring it to thick, pouring consistency (like dosa batter).
  • Transfer the batter into the lined baking pan and bake it for about 25 - 30 minutes or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean. Mine got done exactly at 25 minutes.
  • Wait for it to cool down on a cooling rack. 
  • Once its almost cool, take it out of the pan and allow to cool down completely before cutting it into slices.
  • You can pour some icing if you would like to. Or it can be eaten as it is.

Tips:

  • Tutti frutti chunks can be added to this cake to enhance the taste and make it more colourful.
