HOW TO MAKE OR PREPARE EGGLESS ORANGE CAKE RECIPE
Take a mixing bowl. Sieve the maida, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Grate the skin of the orange with the help of a grater.
Add the orange zest to the mixed flour. Then add the orange juice, oil and sugar. Whisk the mixture well, till the sugar is dissolved completely.
Grease a baking pan and keep it aside. Add the oil mixture to the flour and mix it well. Preheat the oven at 180 degree celcius at convection mode for 10 minutes.
Whisk the batter well and bring it to a nice medium consistency, neither too thin nor too thick consistency. Now pour the batter into the greased cake tin and tap it gently so that the batter is spread evenly in the tin and extra air bubbles are let out. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree celcius for 30-35 minutes or till done. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick and if it comes out clean, it means the cake is ready. Also when it leaves the sides of the pan, then the cake is ready.
Remove the cake from the oven. Let it cool down for 10 minutes in the pan. Run a butter knife on the edges of the pan to loosen the sides. Invert the tin over a plate or a wiring rack and lightly tap on the cake pan. Let the cake cool down completely.
Cut the cake into desired shapes and enjoy.
Baking time varies with different ovens. Cake got baked in my oven within 20 minutes. Hence bake it accordingly.
Always check the cake with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the cake is ready.
The batter should be half of the pan before baking it.
