The pleasant hue and fresh citrusy aroma of this Orange Cake are sure to attract you! And when you do bite into a slice, the outcome will be even better than what you expected because the fresh orange juice and orange rind used in the batter give this cake a very refreshing flavour, comparable to the experience of biting into an orange cream biscuit.

Condensed milk balances the citrus notes beautifully and gives this cake a rich, milky touch too. If you loved this recipe, you are sure to like more of our orange recipes, like the Orange Raisins Muffin and the Orange Sandesh. Do give them a try too!

What can be used instead of condensed milk as it’s not available at home always?

   Condensed milk is a must as it''s a replacement for eggs in the recipe.

This Orange cake has the perfect flavour of Orange. Not too much nor too less. The orange juice and orange rind lends the perfect tinge of orange to this cake. So quick and easy recipe.The smell and flavour is so similar to the ready made orange biscuits you get in the market.
