Orange Cake with Orange Buttercream Icing !

This cake is the ultimate orange cake and if you are a fan of orange like me then this is the cake for you. The recipe requires freshly squeezed Orange Juice. But you can try the store bought ones too. I have used fresh juice of Kinos. These are the oranges that are cultivated in India and this season they were so much in bounty that you could see people every five minutes selling fresh juice; there were literally heaps of these oranges lying on the roadside.

For the Cake:

  1. Flour: 1 1/2 cup
  2. Castor Sugar: 1 cup
  3. Fresh Orange Juice: 2 cups
  4. Olive Oil: 1/2 cup
  5. Baking Soda: 1 tbsp
  6. Baking Powder:1 tbsp
  7. Orange Essence: Optional I didn’t use any and as per your requirement
  8. Eggs: 6 separate egg whites and yellows

Pre- Heat your oven at 180 degrees with your pans inside that have been previously oiled. Take all the dry ingredients and sift together. Take egg whites and beat them with a hand mixer add in castor sugar till the the mix becomes frothy. Add in egg yolk and orange juice to the dry mix and beat. Add in the egg whites and beat with a hand whisk.  The mix should be runny. Do not worry it will bake well. Bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes or till the skewer comes clean. Take it out and cool and decorate with Buttercream. I sliced off the edges to give it a rustic look and added strawberries for that extra punch.

For Buttercream:

In a stand mixer add in butter and beat it till it becomes soft. Add in icing sugar one spoon at a time till the butter and sugar consistency is up to your liking. Add in a few spoons of orange juice not much. We do not want the buttercream to be runny. Add a few drops of orange color you can use orange essence here, which I used here and not in the cake. I used Wilton Tip 1 M pipe a few upright flowers and add in diced strawberries and enjoy.
