How to Make Navel orange and honey eggless cake

  • Wash the navel orange and grate the outer peel with a grater. Make sure not to grate the white part of the orange (will give bitter taste to the cake) makes about 2 tsp. of orange peel. De-skin the orange and take out the segments, remove the fibre from them. Pre-heat the oven for 10 mins at 180 degree C.
  • Take a big vessel, add both the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon powder in it.
  • Sift the dry ingredients twice and keep the vessel aside.
  • Add the dried fruits in the dry flour mix.
  • Take another vessel and pour the oil in it.
  • Add honey and whip it gently.
  • You can add the sugar also if you like your cake to be a bit sweeter.
  • Sugar can be avoided if you want to get the flavour of honey in the cake.
  • Add yogurt, orange segments and the grated peels in it. Whisk gently.
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the dry flour. Mix little at a time.
  • Keep stirring with a very light hand.
  • Stop mixing when all the ingredients are mixed, there are no lumps and flour seen in the batter.
  • Grease a round cake mould and pour the batter into it.
  • Bake the cake for 20 mins at 200 degree C and reduce the temperature to 180 degree C. Bake for another 20 mins or till the cake is firm and slightly golden from outside.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for 20 mins.
  • Slice it and serve with tea or with whipped cream.
  • The navel orange-honey cake is extremely moist with a beautiful orange hue.
  • The heady flavours of cinnamon, honey and orange peels is hard to resist. And the segments of oranges in between the cake makes it more scrumptious.
