It was the season of oranges and I was thinking of different recipes that can be made. Thought of wine but got a bit lazy, since making wine needs a lot of patience and also needs a lot of preparation.
It was my friends birthday and I thought of making pulpy orange cake would be an ideal gift to her.
Pulpy orange cake recipe needs little ingredients. Quickly got the ingredients. With simple ingredients, I baked this pulpy orange cake to my dear friend. The only difficult part here peeling the orange zest.
This time I ask my little one to help me out in baking this pulpy orange cake. I just followed my recipe for this basic sponge cake. Again it is an eggless sponge except I wanted to add in more of orange flavour in this. I have used the pulp of 1 orange.
Pulpy Orange Cake Recipe
In this pulpy orange cake recipe, I have used natural ingredients and I prepared all by myself. I used the Kinu orange as they are more pulpy and juicy also better zest compared to other oranges. Also, tried to give this pulpy orange cake a natural flavour of orange. I have used a good amount of orange pulp.
Please note, use only pulpy part don’t use the translucent cover of the orange pulp (segment membrane). As it may give a bitter taste.
To enhance the taste of this cake I prepared a transparent glaze with sugar, butter and fresh orange juice. I poked the cake with the toothpick so that the glaze gets absorbed by the orange cake as well this gives a glossy look to the cake and I garnished it with orange zest.
The pulp, juice and zest give a very rich flavour of orange. Another important thing I should not miss to tell you is that, pour the glaze while the cake is still in the mould and let it soak for about a minimum of 5 hours, more the better.
For baking the cake you may use a Oven, cooker or a deep pan.
Baking in a cooker
spread salt inside the cooker place a stand. Over the stand, place the baking tray. Do not put the rubber belt (gasket) and whistle while baking
Preheat the cooker on high flame for 5 mins and then reduce the flame to lowest and bake for 30 minutes. Baking times differ, so do visual checking inserting a toothpick. The stand Should not be too high. Baking time differs to the size and weight of the batter.
Baking on a pan
Use a deep bottom pan and place a stand inside. Heat the pan on full heat for 5 minutes. once done, on top of the stand place the baking tray. Bake for 30 mins and keep checking with a toothpick. Baking time differs to the size and weight of the batter.
Baking in an oven
Preheat the oven for 180 degrees in convection. Once the cavity is preheated bake for 30 minutes. Check if it is baked, if not let it bake till the inserted toothpick comes dry.
