  2. WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR... Today will try this recipe. Before this tried most of the cake recipe and all are super... i love baking and your recipe helps me a lot.THANKS AND KEEP POSTING NEW CAKE RECIPES....

  3. Luscious and looks easy to make. Thank you.

  4. This looks so good. ..easy and simple steps. .will surely try..good job.

  5. Hi Aarthi,

    I have tried your eggless christmas cake and dates cake with good results and today I tried your eggless orange cake. It tastes fantastic but it sunk in the middle while baking and got burnt and stuck at the bottom. I had to scoop out the cake with a spoon. The only change that I had made was to switch milk with water. Also, I only baked it for 30 minutes because it was already looking runt. It was cooked though. Your oven times have worked for me before so I am not sure what went wrong. I intend repeating this recipe with milk but do you have any ides about what could have happened? Thanks.

  6. @Anonymous I think adding water must been the mistake. Because milk has some fat content in it and water dont have that. So use milk next time and let me know how it turned out.

  7. Hai Aarthi,first of all a big congrats on the arrival of your beautiful baby.
    This orange cake is looking scrumptious.I dont ve baking powder though.Can i make do without it?I have baking soda.Hope to hear from you.
    You ve a lovely blog.God bless.

  8. @NishaNo you have to use baking powder. baking powder and baking soda are different in their characters.

  9. Hi,

    I tried this wonderful recipe and it came out yummy.However it was a bit chewy.Any idea why?If the quantity is lesser how much does the baking time reduce to?

  10. @Nisha Ganesh I think you must have baked longer. Try reducing the cooking time.

  11. Hi Aarti,

    I have tried many of your recipes & it has come out well. Thanks a lot for posting such good recipes. Last week for the first time I baked cup cakes. It came out well. I used the silicon moulds. I have a small doubt. The baking tray which I bought is a bit bigger size. So if I keep that tray in my micro wave , therez no space for rotation. So this time while baking kept only the moulds. Just wanted to know will there be a problem if the tray don't rotate? How can I use the tray?

  12. @Rajani MenonIf you are using microwave then the rotating motion will make it cook evenly. But if your cake is cooked properly then it wont be a problem i think. But i would suggest you to invest in another pan which fits your microwave so it is safe to use.

  13. which baking tin have you used for making this cake? I mean how many litres is it? I have a borosil bake and serve 0.8l. I am confused how much kg will I get 1/4kg or 1/2kg? can u please answer my doubts?

  14. Hi arathi
    Can u plz suggest some alternatives for baking other than oven. I dnt hav oven.

  15. @AnonymousSorry this has to be done in oven.

  16. Can it be done in a steamer??

  17. @AnonymousI am not sure..since i have not tried it..

  18. Dear Arathi...
    I tried this recipe... i am not much of a cook... but this turned out yummy and really good and this was my first attempt in baking... i suggest that this is a must try cake...i reduced the sugar to 100 gms as i felt 200 is way too much and will be really sweet. my in laws are diabetic.. thats why.. anyway thanks... keep posting...

  19. Dear Arathi,

    I wanna try this out. Could you please tell me could i use vegetable oil instead of butter.Also how much quantity?Whether we need to use both baking powder and baking soda?

    Thanks a lot,

  20. Hi Arathi,

    I wanna try this out.Could you please tell me whether we need to use both baking powder and baking soda?Also could I use vegetable oil instead of butter?please tell me the quantity if so.

    Thanks a lot,

  21. @ShebaYes u have to use both of them. And you can use oil, but butter gives more flavour

  22. Is using orange peel a must? My cake turns bitter on using the zest!

  23. @UnknownYou have to grate only the orange part of the orange.. if you grate white part then the cake will turn bitter..You can skip it if you dont like..

  24. Hi I've tried a few of ur recipes and all of them came out really well. Now pls tell me how to bake this cake in microwave oven. Thanks in advance dear aarthi

  25. Tried today and tasted really good. But the cake got sticked to the pan so I couldn't invert the whole cake. I coated the pan with flour after oil. Is that a problem? Or the butter was not mixed well small lumps were there... May be that caused the issue? Couldn't slice the cake. Pls tell me a solution I am planning to try this out for my husband's office party this Friday coz I love the taste...

  26. Forgot to say this... My cake got baked in 25min in 360 deg f preheated... Should it be stay longer as u said for 40min to get the whole cake without disaster?

  27. @Breeze Pthis cake will be like a sticky and pudding like cake. I think the flour is not mixed in properly so it had formed small lumps.You can sieve the flour well before adding into the cake batter. nd if your cake is done in 25 mins and if you are sure about it, then you dont over bake.

  28. Thanks for ur response. I couldn't make it with no lumps..butter is not getting mashed. Can we do it in a mixer blender?

  29. @Breeze Pthe butter has to be at room temp, then only it will mash properly

  30. Hi Aarti,just wanted to check if the orange juice be replaced by orange essence?since this I not the time for good orange if I replace it with orange essence will it work?

  31. Can I make this cake in toaster oven plz reply

  32. Hi.. can I replace all purpose flour with wheat flour..

  33. Hi arthi. Can I make this with wheat flour ?

  34. I tired your broken glass pudding. It was awesome taste aarthi. Thanks. I have posted on my fb

  35. @Halima SadiaU can try making this in pressure cooker

  36. @Lakshmanu can try with wheat flour, but the cake texture may be little dense
