Birthday cake...Again!!!

I know its a cake again...but one can never have enough cake recipes...right!?
Right. That's settled then.

It was my friend's birthday…that means i just had to bake a cake.
Plus women like chocolate , so I made a chocolate cake. (yippee!!)

Orange and chocolate is a winning combination, no second thoughts about it.
So I donned my apron and made this cake for her.

Orange chocolate eggless cake
  1. Flour/maida/whole wheat flour (take any one)- 1 &1/2 cup
  2. Cocoa powder- 1/3 cup
  3. Baking soda- 1 tsp
  4. Brown sugar- 3/4 cup
  5. Salt- 1/2 tsp
  6. Butter- 75 gm (you can use 5 Tbsp olive oil also…I used butter)
  7. Orange marmalade- 1/4 cup
  8. Orange juice- 1 cup
  9. Orange extract- 1 tsp

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 150 degrees Centigrade. Prepare the pan by greasing it with butter and dusting with flour (you can use cocoa powder to dust it too).
  2. Take all the dry ingredients and mix in a bowl.
  3. Mix juice, marmalade and melted butter in another bowl.
  4. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredient mix to the wet ingredients  and mix well. Add the rest of the dry ingredients , mix well.
  5. Add orange extract and mix well.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and keep it in the oven for 40-45 min or until the toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cool the cake before cutting. You can dust it with icing sugar.
