What is Whole Wheat Orange Cake?

The whole wheat orange cake is a very fruity cake with the awesome flavor of fresh oranges, as the name suggests. It is soft and light, although made using whole wheat flour. It is a great tea time cake. However, if topped with little sugar glaze or whipped cream and fresh orange slices, the cake can go to an altogether different level. Do try this recipe as it is

Let’s Talk about the Ingredients for Whole Wheat Orange Cake

As the name suggests, it is an orange cake. We are using orange juice and orange zest from fresh oranges. However, if you are short of fresh orange you may use store bought orange juice, though nothing beats the flavors derived from fresh oranges.

I have used whole wheat flour to make this cake. You make use all-purpose flour or a combination of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. And if you do that you might have to reduce the quantity of orange juice to get the correct consistency of the batter.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
