Oranges are rich in Vitamin C , B1 and A. High amount of anti oxidant helps in increasing immunity. Body becomes resistant towards common cold, flu and infections.

I had some fresh oranges so thought of making orange cake. Fresh orange juice and orange zest are the two main ingredients which gives flavour to the orange cake. Rest of the ingredients like flour, butter, eggs, baking powder, milk are same as used in an ordinary cake.

INGREDIENTS

Sugar                             1 tea cup
Eggs                               3

Baking powder            1  tsp
Orange juice                 3/4 tea cup
Orange zest                   1    1/2 tsp
Milk                                1/2 tea cup

Preheat the oven to 160 deg C for 10 minutes. Grease your baking tray with butter, add the cake batter. Stand the baking tray in a pan of water and bake for 1 hour or until it is cooked.(if water dries in the pan add water).

Check with a tooth pick if the cake is done if needed bake for some more time.

 

FOR ICING

Butter             1 tea cup
Icing sugar.    2 tea cup
Milk.                2 tbsp

 

In a large bowl mix the butter nice and fluffy. Add the icing sugar little by little and beat it well. Add milk and beat well.
