Moist Orange Cake Recipe
We’ll be baking moist orange cake today. I browsed the web and found a recipe on allrecipes.co.uk that I believe will work so I tested it out. I tweaked it to suit my preference and this is the result:
Super moist and delicious orange cake.
This is my tweaked recipe:
130g sugar (the original calls for 150g)
Grated orange zest from ONE orange (the original says 2 tablespoons)
2 egg yolks
2 egg whites
125g self-raising flour
125ml fresh orange juice
1 pinch salt (I omitted this as I used salted butter)
1/2 tsp baking soda (The original recipe did not use baking soda but I added this as my cake did not rise nicely on my previous attempt)
This is how I measure the orange juice. LoL! I have so many unused milk bottles as I direct latch Ayden so his bottles are now my measuring cup :P
I actually blended an entire orange without the seed and peel so it’s a little thicker compared to just juice as there are pulp and fibre in there too.
Now let’s start baking the orange cake :)
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add orange zest and continue creaming.
Add egg yolks and beat at low speed.
Fold half the flour (mixed with baking soda).
Then fold half the orange juice. Fold the remaining flour in and add the rest of the orange juice and fold again.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff.
Fold whisked egg whites into the orange batter.
Pour mixture into a greased rice cooker pot and bake.
The cake is ready after 45-50 minutes.
My readers often asked me if the texture of cakes baked using rice cooker is the same as those baked using an oven. My answer is YES. The only difference is the cakes baked using rice cooker has a pale top but they retain moisture better and have beautiful crust on the sides and bottom.
This orange cake recipe is a keeper. It’s quick, easy to make yet very moist and delicious. Another tried and tested recipe to add into my collection of successful rice cooker cakes.
