Baking is an art! It gives me great satisfaction! When I started baking, I wanted to avoid refined maida, sugar, colours and chemicals. At first, I was sceptical but now using brown ingredients like wheat, jaggery , dates, and millets give me great happiness when my family loves it. I generally prefer baking with fresh fruits and vegetables available in my refrigerator compartment. Oranges are full of vitamin-c which are the best addition to this cake. This cake is loaded with nutrients and very good for kids evening snack. The colour of orange makes the cake more attractive. I admire cakes a lot. So, I don’t feel like cutting them. But then I did sliced into it and fell in love even more. Do try this cake and enjoy the cake with your family. Lets get started with the making of orange cake. Happy baking!
