Going to supermarket and looking at fresh produce is my favorite thing. Seems silly but I do just sometimes walk around and buy things I’d like to indulge in. One such produce is “oranges”. They have such freshness and fragrance which in its edible form is divine.
This beat & Bake Orange cake as the name suggests is so simple to put together and delicious on its own. It’s at very high list on tea time indulgence at my home.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1&1/2 cups caster sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
About 2 tsp orange zest
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable or olive oil
3 eggs beaten
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
In a bowl sift together flour, salt and baking powder.
Sift sugar. Mix well and keep aside.
In another bowl mix together beaten eggs, milk, orange juice, orange zest and oil. Mix well.
Now make a well in the dry ingredients and mix the wet ingredients in three batches until a smooth batter is formed.
Line the cup cake tin with liner and fill uptil 2/3 full.
Bake at 180°C for 15-20 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
You can adjust the amount of orange juice as per your taste. (No harm in tasting the cake batter, more orange taste the better)
Get the orange zest before juicing the oranges.
You can add nuts as per your choice to get crunch in the cupcake.
All purpose flour can be replaced by the regular wheat flour. However the texture may differ and they may turn out a little dense.
This recipe produce 18-24 cupcakes according to the size of the tin used.
