Orange Flavoured Cake

Recently on Deepawali me and my hubby prepared the orange cake . It came out to be really awesome.
I  have been trying my hands on preparing the cake for so long time, i must say that orange cake is one that is appreciated by a large age group.


  • All purpose flour- 3cups
  • Sugar- 2cups
  • Egg- 2
  • Butter/Refined oil- 1 cup
  • vanila Essence-1 tsp
  • Baking Powder- 1tbsp
  • Baking Soda- 1tsp
  • Cinnamom powder-1/2 t

For icing

  • Orange juice- 1cup
  • Whipping Cream -200ml should be very cold at the time 
  • Hand mixer/Beater kept in freeze for 1 hour before whipping
  • Vessel in which we will prepare the icing should also be kept in freezer for 1 hour before.
  • Powdered sugar- 1 Tbsp

Baking :

  • Grease the baking tray with butter
  • preheat the oven at 180 Degree C.
  • Beat all the ingredients until you can see some bubble inside the mixture.
  • Place the mixture in the baking tray, give the tray some tap before placing it in the oven.
  • Place the tray in the oven at 150 Degree C for 25 minutes to 30 minutes.
  • Check the cake at 20-25 minutes, insert a toothpick inside the baked cake if it comes out clean take out the cake and let it cool off.
  • Once the cake cools off, cut it into two layers, remove all uneven layers.


  • Whipp the cream and sugar until the milk ends up in a foam. With hand it will take around 1/2 hours and with electric beaters hardly 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour evenly the orange juice on all the layers of the cake.
  • With the help of the flat spatula start placing the whipping cream over the bottom most layer, spread evenly on the upper surface.
  • Place the other layer of cake over the whipping cream And again place the half of the whipping cream, this time cover the upper surface as well as the side surface of the cake with whipping cream.
  • Now place the left whipping cream in a cone, place a star tip at the mouth of the cone and make some good shapes at the edge of the cake or what so ever way you want it . 
  • You can also place some choclate chips over them
  • Kiwi, strawberry, and orange looks really good when thinly sliced and placed over the cake.
  • Freeze  the cake for around 2 hours atleast before serving.
And thats how the Orange cake is Baked and dressed.
