Eggless Orange Cake

After lot of requests from so many of you to post the eggless orange cake that I tried recently, here is the pic and the recipe. Although the one whose pic you see above didn't turn out that soft or spongy because halfway through the baking the power went off and came back only after 30 min. So the heating, cooling and heating didn't work too well for the cake :)


  1. 1-1/2 cups plain flour
  2. 1/2 tsp soda bicarb
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  5. 3/4 cup caster sugar
  6. 1/4 cup yogurt
  7. 3/4 cup orange juice (I used fresh squeezed)
  8. 2 tsp orange zest
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Lightly grease an 8" round baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, sift together the flour, soda bicarb and baking powder.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the oil, sugar and yogurt.
  4. Add the juice, orange zest and flour; mix well and pour into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes or till the cake tests done. Let it remain in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn it out onto a wire cooling rack.
For Microwave Baking:
  1. Add 1/2 cup milk additional to the above specified ingredients.
  2. And bake for about 12 min at highest power initially and do more if required.
