🌾All-Purpose Flour: 1 cup (the foundation of our cake!)

🥄Baking Powder: 1 tbsp (let's raise our cake spirits!)


Easy Steps to Make Fresh Orange Cake:



  1. Prep the Oranges: Begin by cutting two zesty oranges into small pieces, unleashing the citrus aroma that brings this cake to life.
  1. Mixing Magic: In a mixer, add those fresh orange pieces, followed by 3/4 cup of sugar to sweeten the memories. Pour in 1/2 cup of cooking oil for a silky texture, then crack in 2 whole eggs, the golden essence of our cake.
  1. Turn on the Whirlwind: Switch on the mixer and let it whirl a great mix, blending the ingredients into a smooth, fragrant batter.
  1. Flour Power: Transfer the orangey mixture into a big bowl. Sprinkle in 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 tbsp of baking powder, then mix well to form the soul of our Fresh Orange Cake.
  1. Butter and Batter: Now, take another bowl, line it with butter paper, and brush a layer of butter for a non-stick charm. Gently pour in the batter.
  1. Garnish and Bake: Sprinkle some orange zest or sprinkles for that extra orange look! Bake it in a preheated or stone oven for 45 minutes. Let the magic happen as it turns golden and gorgeous.
  1. Patience, my dear!: Once done, let the cake cool. The hardest part is waiting, but it's worth every second!
