  • Flour - 110 gm
  • Powdered sugar- 150 gm
  • Vegetable oil - 120 ml
  • Orange juice - 100 ml
  • Orange zest - 30 gm
  • Eggs - 3
  • Egg white -1
  • Baking powder - 15 gm
  • Salt - pinch
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  • Butter essence - 1 tsp
  • Separate egg yolk from white when it is cold and let it rest at room temperature. Add the extra egg white to the separated white.
  • Preheat oven to 190 °C. Use electric beater, beat flour, sugar (take 50 gm sugar separately), baking powder, salt, and orange zest. Then add egg yolk, oil, orange juice, and essences. Beat till the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
  • In another bowl, beat egg white until it becomes foamy, without stopping beater, Now add remaining sugar and continuously beat till peaks are formed. This is the right consistency.
  • Now mix beaten white and sugar mixture with the flour mixture and mix it with hand beater or just a spoon, mix it nicely(no electric beater remember). 
  • Grease a pan and pour this mixture and bake it for 30 minutes. My cake was done within this time. Remember different oven take different time so insert toothpick to check whether cake is done. 
  • Let the cake rest to cool and cut it into pieces, store it in the airtight container. 
  • Eat this yummy, spongy, orange cake whenever your heart desire.
