All Purpose flour/Maida/Plain flour – 1+1/2 cups
Baking Powder – 1+1/2 tsps
Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp
Wet ingredients :
White granulated sugar – 3/4cup
Thick Yogurt – 3/4 cup (at room temperature)
Vegetable Oil – 1/2 cup
Orange juice – 1/2 cup (Freshly squeezed)
Orange Zest – 1 tsp
First preheat the oven at 180°C. Grease & flour the baking tin of 7″ diameter, if you want, line with parchment paper/Butter paper. I took a loaf tin.
Sieve the dry ingredients together atleast 3 times and keep aside, this give more aeration in the flour and helps in making the cake light.
In other bowl mix sugar + yogurt and whisk nicely, you will get a very nice texture. To this add orange juice, oil and orange zest and mix. After they are well combined add the dry ingredients and fold in gently.
Pour the batter in tin.
Bake it on the middle rack for 35-40 mins or unless a tooth pick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Mine took exactly 40 minutes. But keep checking after 35 minutes as every oven vary as per the power smile emoticon
When done, take it out and give a rest of 2 minutes in the tin, then demold and cool on a cooling rack.
Once the cake is completely cooled, Slice it and serve
