Orange Olive Oil Egg-less Cake | Eggless Cake Recipes

Citrus flavored bakes fascinates me. They are very light tasting and with every bite it is like a party in your mouth. When I was searching for a cake with orange juice which is also eggless I stumbled upon Priya's recipe here. I made few substitutions and baked this cake for a birthday. This recipe can also be made as a loaf cake or muffins.
Makes on 9" cake; Serves 8
All purpose flour/Maida - 1 cup
Whole Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Corn Starch - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp

Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp

Orange juice - 1/2 cup - preferably freshly squeezed
Thick greek yogurt - 1 cup (room temperature)
Olive oil - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup
Orange zest - 1 tbsp - I used lime zest, hence the green hue
Pure Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix 1/4 cup of sugar with the orange zest and set aside. Grease and flour a 9" deep pan. Mix the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda with a whisk or fork until it is well mixed. Whisk the yogurt and sugar together until the sugar melts. Add the olive oil, vanilla and the sugar with zest and mix well. Now add the dry ingredients alternating with flour mixture and juice. Do not overmix. Pour in the greased bowl and bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve as a simple snack with a cup of tea.
1. You could use all all-purpose flour for a lighter cake.
2. I did not frost the cake. You could use a whipped cream frosting with sugar and perfumed with orange zest.
3. Alternatively you could soak up the cake in sweetened orange juice before serving.
4. I have substituted 1/2 cup of Splenda for 1/2 cup of sugar to make a low-calorie version.
