  • Powdered Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
  • Baking powder - 3 teaspoons

  • Egg - 2 (beaten)
  • Orange zest - 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • whipped cream.

Step 1:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F (175 degree C)
  • Grease 9 *5 inch loaf pan (You can also use two round pan of 8- inch)
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  • Mix in sugar and orange zest. Set aside.

  • Stir to combine thoroughly and add the orange juice and Mix well.

Step 3: Bake It...

Hint:

  • Insert toothpick randomly on cakes to make some holes and pour some orange juice mixed with powdered sugar.
  • Add orange jam on top of it.
  • You can use homemade orange buttercream frosting or sugar glaze instead of whipped icing.
