Simple Eggless Orange flavored Sponge Cake

Print Friendly and PDF
The whole Blogosphere is full of Christmas celebrations showcasing different cookies,fruit cakes and special festive food in their beautiful blogs for this perfect occasion.Earlier,even I had some plans to bake a special fruit cake inspired by our enthu bloggers who started the preparations almost few weeks before for this christmas.Last week was completely hectic for me as my cousins visited us and we had a great time eating all possible food outside and have done tonnes of shopping with them.Due to the weather change I immediately caught cold and then cough and slight fever,I was down the complete last week with sore throat and spent the whole week swallowing N number of medicines and syrup's.So,I dropped my idea of baking cake which is loaded with loads of fat and calories.However I had a cake post pending in my draft from so many days seeking its attention,so thought of posting it for christmas even though it is not made for it.
And coming to the cake recipe,this is a eggless cake which I made for my mom (as she does not eat egg )during my last visit to Bangalore.When I saw this recipe here a couple of month's back
I loved the color and texture of the cake and I bookmarked it to prepare it for my mom especially.
I halved the recipe and almost followed the same method,just that I added apple cider vinegar and some extra sugar to the original recipe.The outcome was just fantastic,the cake was really moist,fluffy and loaded with orange flavor.This is definitely a fool proof eggless recipe which I treasure to treat the people who does not eat egg.No one can just say seeing the texture that it is eggless,please give a try to treat the pure vegetarians with this fool proof eggless sponge cake recipe.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup(190 gms) Refined flour/Maida

1/2 can(200 gms/ml) Condensed Milk
1/2 cup(125 gms) melted Butter,at room temperature
1/2 cup(125 ml) Orange Juice

3 tbsp powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essence

1 tsp Apple cider Vinegar

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Orange Zest

Method:
  • Preheat the Oven @ 180 deg for 10 mins.
  • Line and grease a 8 inch square tin with butter and dust well with flour.
  • Sift the flour with baking powder and baking soda into a bowl and keep it aside.
  • In another bowl mix well with a hand whisker melted butter,condensed milk,orange juice,powdered sugar,vanilla essence and apple cider vinegar until everything is mixed well.
  • Make a well in the sifted flour mixture and pour the whisked wet ingredients mixture in the center and gently mix the mixture until you get a smooth and uniform mixture without lumps.
  • Add orange zest to it and mix well.
  • Pour the mixture into the greased square tin and tap it twice to remove the air bubbles formed if any.
  • Place this pan in the center of the oven and bake it for 35-40 mins until the crust is golden brown in color or if the tooth pick comes out clean when inserted into it.
  • After 5 mins remove it from the pan and let it cool on the wire rack.Cut into square wedges and serve.
  • Store it in the air tight container.
I wish all the bloggers and my readers MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR. Will catch you all in the new year.Till then enjoy your holidays and if possible will catch you with another post in this year.
