Orange Loaf Cake

Orange Loaf Cake

I first saw this recipe in a Eye doctor's place!(Really!). Went for my regular annual checkup and they had these plethora of mags lying around among which was this Taste of Home edition. I was flipping through it when I saw this recipe. It clicked immediately and since I had no paper or pen to note it down, I used my phone camera to copy the same. The only changes I made to it(and that's only cos I wanted to use all my oranges and nothing else!) was to increase the Orange juice and decrease the no. of eggs whites from 4 to 2 to accommodate more Orange juice. I also added Orange zest for that extra zing.The rest was just right for me.

    i wanted to join a baking class but where i stay i dont know the local language so decided against enrolling . but with chefinyou website i need no more classes. sometimes i feel so overwhelmed after cooking your recipes , i feel how can i thank u enough.

    Thank you so so much for making my day so much more brighter. At the end of the day, you make everything tastes so good in your kitchen and to think I get a small credit for it is like keeping the cake and eating it too. Appreciate your kind words :) –DK

    hai DK
    very nice recipe… i want to try it but i dont want to use egg…can u plz tell me it will work….or ican use any substitute…….i can use that substitute for some other cake recipe of urs.
    thanks

    The beauty of the cake is that the egg whites add that amazing texture to the cake. But if you want to make a substitute you can use 1/4 cup of orange juice or apple sauce or silken tofu. Hope this helps :) –DK
