We are taking a week off and going on a vacation to kashmir. We are leaving today night and will be back only on april 3rd, but no worries i have scheduled all the post, so you will be getting new post everyday. But i wont be able to reply to all your comments. So please bare with me, i will be replying all the mails after a week. And you know how excited i am, so thrilled to check out the whole new world. I will be sharing my experience with you all when i come back, i am planning to do a entire post on the foods which i explored and enjoyed there, OFCOURSE YOU KNOW I WILL!

I have almost done with all the packing, i have been packing for past 3 days. I started early, because carrying a toddler with you, you dont want to miss anything important. So i have been thinking and packing all the stuffs which i need on this week journey. I got a bit of time right now, so thought of jumping on the blog and share this delicious cake post and this exciting news to you all..So BON VOYAGE FOR ME...

Now this is one of the simplest and tasty cake which you will ever make and taste. It takes less than 5 to 10 mins to put together and the cake taste so delicious and soft without egg and butter. It is pretty healthy as well, you can give it to 1 year old babies too..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 30 to 40 mins
Makes : 5 to 6 slices



All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup / 120 grams
Oil - 1/4 cup (Use normal vegetable oil)
Sugar - 1/2 cup / 100 grams
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Orange Essence - 1/4 tsp (optional)
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Orange Pulp - 1/2 cup
Thick Unsour Curd / Greek Yogurt - 1/3 cup


Preheat oven to 180 Degree C.
Take a 10 cm round cake pan, oil them well, sprinkle with flour, coat on all sides, tap off the excess. Set aside.

Sieve flour, baking soda, baking powder well and set aside.

Take oil, sugar, vanilla essence, orange essence, orange pulp, curd in a bowl and mix well.

Add in the sifted dry ingredients and fold gently.

Pour this into the pan and bake it for 30 to 40 mins.

Remove the cake, insert a tooth pick and check whether it is done. If the tooth pick comes out clean then it is done.

Remove the cake pan from oven, let it cool down for 30 mins. 

Invert and slice and serve.


Take all your ingredients

Start by sifting the dry ingredients...Take flour in a sifter

Add in baking soda / cooking soda

and some baking powder

sieve it up

set this aside

I took a round cake pan, oiled them well and sprinkled some flour over it, coated it on all sides and tapped off the excess

This recipe calls for orange juice, but i took a big orange, Peeled it, Removed the seeds and Ground it coarsely . You dont have to remove the skin of the orange segments

Take oil in a bowl

add in sugar

and some vanilla essence

add in orange pulp

add in thick yogurt / curd

I happened to have some orange essence, so i added few
 drops of them too..If you dont have this, just skip it

use a whisk and mix well

mix till the sugar is melted

Add in the flour mix

mix well

it will be a little thick batter

A close look, i love the orange pulp which is scattered 
all over the cake..

Pour the batter on to the smells really orangy 
and citrusy, so yum

Bake them

Cool them down and cut into slices


This is a kind of cake, you will be enjoying with a cup of tea, coffee or milk

  27. Hi Arthi

    I was so excited the moment read your recipe of Eggless Orange cake that when I went back home from office I just tried the recipe carefully, but only to have a disaster cake, alas!!. It did not raise at all and the texture was like pudding. I guess liquid ingredients was more than required. I don't have the measuring cups. Kindly, give me your tips. I want to get an exact orange cake as it in ur post. Kindly help.

  28. @AnonymousSorry to hear about your disaster. What i suggest you, for baking you need proper measuring cups and spoon. Because for baking measurements are more important. So please get measuring cups and spoons and use that for making cakes

  29. Mera bhi cake accha nahi bana

  30. Hurray!!! came out well. But the outer layer of the cake is dry and little hard (like crisp) and not as soft & moist as the inner part. Followed the same measurement... Not sure what went wrong... Adding more oil will bring the softness? Pls suggest. Planning to try ur orange pudding cake tomorrow...

  31. @Breeze Pu must have over baked it. And as the cakes cool it will get soft

  32. Hi Aarthi,
    I tried this recipe today. Only difference is i poured it in a little flat pan and baked, as i dont have a deep round bowl. Initially looked like it baked well. Thought it dint get as brown crust as shown in your pic, edges were brown, and it slightly started cracking on top, When inserted toothpick, it came out clean. But after cooling , i saw its slight wet at bottom. Its happening to all my cakes. :(I tried changing my silicone bakeware to nonstick aluminium bakeware also. Still the same. What is that is going wrong. Can u help me?


  33. @nandini nagasuriI hope it may be because of the setting. do you preheat the oven before baking.

  34. yes, I preheat too, as per instructions given in manual..

  35. @nandini nagasurithen may be the sugar is not melted properly

  36. Hi Arthi, can i try pineapple instead of orange for the same receipe? Should i add pineapple as puree or cooked with sugar in a thick consistency? I also hve pineapple essence i wiil try adding the same as u added orange essence. Is there any other change i should make please tell me to get a pineapple cake?

  37. Hi
    Can I use strawberry instead of orange

  38. Thanks for sharing the recp.Which veg oil can be used?can i use groundnut veg oil?will it smell typically?which oil is perfect?

  39. @Sonalany flavourless oil can be used like saffola, gold winner refined oil

  40. wonderful cake. i just made in half hr. coz the picyorial was very clear.
    thanks aarthi

  41. That cake looks delicious! If I subscribe to your blog, do I get one of this each month in my house? haha, just kidding, great cake.

  42. For what should we keep in Convection Mode..???

  43. Hi if I make cupcakes using this recipe, how long should I bake them? Btw, your recipes are all so detailed and I love them!

  44. Hi cake looks amazing any substitute fr curd?

  45. @Arthi Rit depends on the size..check anywhere from 12 mins

  46. Hi Arathi, I have tried with the same preparation. After 25 minutes the top of the cake comes out brown and I remove and test with tooth pick, but the inside was not done. I baked for another 5 minutes the cake became flat and after cooling down and cutting I saw it is not done at the middle.
    What is the problem. I preheat it with 180 degree convection mode and my oven automatically buzz after preheat.

  47. Hi Arathi,I follow your blog as each bake looks so tempting. Wanted to try this recipe too.but a little confused as you have mentioned that your cup measures 240 gram.and yet in recipe you have taken 1 cup flour/120 gram maida.plz tell me what weight should I use.120gm or 240 GM.thanks.

  48. @Bina Patelweigh as mentioned in the recipe. Because each ingredient weighs diff in a cup. If you have a 240 ml cup you can use that

  49. Just baked it now and as it came out from my oven it is almost fully eaten up. Thank you for the easy and delicious recipe. Please keep up the good work.

  50. hi Aarthi..could you please tell me what would be the measurements of ingrients if i take 2 cups of maida?? I have the big size baking mould thats why

  51. Hey article, hope you doing good☺ Can we make orange pulp at home? If yes, then what's the procedure
