Orange Cake - Tasty and Healthy too !!!


This is one of those recipe which is tasty and healthy too. I am glad that I tried this and was very happy with the results. The cake was very moist and light and was enjoyed by all.
I bought these orange cuties and was thinking to utilize them in some good way ( though they are so tasty by themselves ) . And thought of baking a cake with this fresh flavor cuties.

Here is the recipe :

Ingredients :
Eggs- 5
whole wheat flour (atta)
- 1 and 1/4 C
baking powder-2 tsp
Orange zest of 1 orange ( these cuties were small so i used 2 )
Fresh orange juice : 1/2 cup
vegetable/sunflower oil
- 1 cup
sugar
- 3/4 cup

Powdered sugar : just to sprinkle

Procedure :
  1. Pre heat the oven at 350 F .
  2. Prepare your loaf pan. ( can bake in 8 inch round pan also )
  3. Beat together the eggs, oil, orange juice and sugar till pale and fluffy. Add the orange zest.
  4. In another bowl, sieve together the flour and baking powder.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, a few tblsp at a time, and fold in .
  6. Pour the mixture to fill 3/4 of the prepared pan.
  7. Place the pan in the middle rack of the pre heated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or till nicely browned.
  8. Cover the pan with foil ( to prevent over browning). Bake for another 20 minutes or till a toothpick inserted through the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Cool the loaf in the pan for a couple of minutes and then carefully transfer to a rack. Peel off the foil. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar.
Enjoy with cup of milk or just like that !!!
