Eggless Orange Cake Recipe Without Condensed Milk

Print Friendly and PDF
eggless orange cake recipe
I usually make eggless orange biscuit cake and its our family favorite too. But this time I tried an eggless, butter less orange sponge cake recipe using fresh orange juice.This recipe is without condensed milk,curd and it’s a vegan version too. I referred this recipe and used cooking oil to achieve the softness. Cake came out very well with bursting orange flavor. I loved its color, texture, flavor and above all it was like pillow soft to touch and eat. I was completely satisfied with the result and patted myself for this successful baking๐Ÿ‘. I am happy and double confident that this cake is going to be a super hit among my family members. I am waiting for Raksha to come back from school and taste it. I guess this cake can be made with wheat flour too. I must give a try. Lets see how to make this easy, low fat vegan orange cake recipe with stepwise pictures.

Eggless orange cake recipe Eggless orange cake recipe without egg,butter,cream,condensed milk and curd.
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Cake Recipes
Serves: Yields 10 pieces
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 30 Minutes
Total time: 40 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
1 cup = 240 ml
  • All purpose flour/Maida - 1.5 cups ( Heaped)
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Orange juice - 1 cup (Use fresh juice for best results)
  • Cooking oil - 1/3 cup ( use odourless oil,i used sunflower oil)
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Orange zest - 1/2 tsp (Use grated skin)
METHOD
  • In a wide bowl,sieve the maida,baking powder,soda and salt.Mix well.Add the orange zest to it.( I grated the skin of orange and mixed with the flour) Set aside. Grease a baking pan with oil or butter and sprinkle the maida all over the pan.Keep aside.

  • In another bowl,mix the sugar,oil and orange juice. Use a whisk and stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves well.
  • Add the flour to the oil mixture and mix it with a spatula or whisk in one direction.Do not over beat the mixture. Cake will not rise.The batter should fall like a ribbon.This is the right consistency.
  • Preheat the oven in convection mode at 180c for 10  minutes.Pour the batter in the baking pan and pat its bottom once for even distribution of batter.Now bake the cake in convection mode at 180c for 30-35 minutes.Check the cake by inserting a tooth pick in the center of the cake after 30  minutes.If it comes out clean or with little crumbs,cake is done.If u find the wet batter in the tooth pick,bake the cake for 2-3 minutes more.Invert the pan in a plate after the cake is cooled down.Cut into slices and enjoy with Tea.
Note
  • Please adjust the timing based on the convection oven..
  • You can replace oil with softened butter.
  • You can also use store bought orange juice but cake flavor will be less.
  • No need to use water,curd or milk.Orange juice would do.
  • Do not invert the cake as soon as u bake.Cake will break.If the cake doesn’t fall off easily,bake it for 2 more minutes.


Enjoy this cake for your tea time.Tastes awesome !

Thanks for this recipe, I baked it for my daughter's 2nd Birthday and it turned out great!
I was a bit apprehensive of how it would turn out since the little experience I have with eggless cakes gave me the idea they are usually very dense and a bit dry. But this one turned out fluffy, moist and delicious.
It disappeared in no time, I should've made two since they don't really grown that much.

Chitra said...

Thanks for the great feedback. It made my day !

Unknown said...

Geetha Ravi said...

Hi. Can i use this measurement for orange muffin?

Chitra said...

Yeah u can try :)

Unknown said...

Hi Chitra, I made this cake 2-3 times. First time it came out hard may be bcoz of my oven. 2nd and 3rd time it came out so well that i gave it to my office team and my relatives and friends and they are asking me more. Perfect recipe .Thanks so much. I added strawberry this time and it came out very well. The cake had cracks though i cooled it completely before making it upside down and cutting the cake. Can you please suggest why the cakes crack. i have diligently followed the measurements

Chitra said...

Thanks a lot for the feedback :) Cake cracks due to over hot oven.It also cracks if the quantity of soda or baking powder goes slightly high.Next time when u try,just reduce a pinch of baking powder. U may get it perfect !

Unknown said...

Hi, can I use self rising flour as self rising flour comes with baking powder.

Chitra said...

Yes you can try it

Rachel Esther said...

Thanks for this recipe! I have made this cake many times. I replaced half the oil with yoghurt and even with this change the cake turned out awesome!

Chitra said...

Wow, happy to know it. Addition of yogurt is a healthy option as well. Thanks a lot for your feedback :)

Avani said...

Hello Chitra!
I want to try this recipe, looks really good!!! i have one question though, what size cake pan did you use and can i use a 9inch round one?!

Avani said...

Hey and thanks so much for this recipe! I really want to try it, but I have one question. What size cake pan did you use?! can i use a 9inch round pan instead?

Chitra said...

I have used 7 inch pan. Yes you can use but size (height) of the cake would be lesser than this.

Chitra said...

Hi, there won't be much difference. You can add 1.25 cups of maida, 1/4 cup oil, 3/4 cup orange juice and reduce 2 tbsp sugar from 3/4 cup. Baking soda and baking powder can be the same but use levelled quantity. Hope this helps. Please let me know your feedback.

Will definately be trying this, looks great. Thanks for sharing!
