It's been two months since I have baked a cake and that is because my oven is playing peekaboo with me . After resting for 1 month in the workshop last week I got my oven back . Tuesday was my In laws marriage anniversary and I want to bake a cake . As oranges are seasonal so I tried my hand for an orange cake . While I was looking for an eggless recipe I found this recipe on the back side of our astrology calendar . So let's start the recipe . Yum

Ok one more...





Serve-6. Baking time -35 minutes

Note: You may skip walnuts in the recipe. The amount of sugar was good for us but if you want a bit more sweeter then add 1 cup of sugar.
You may eat the cake without frosting as well. Best regards,
