Ingredients

Yield: 8 servings


Orange cake

Oranges...3-4

Orange zest...from 2-3 oranges

Fresh orange juice...1/4 cup or ~60ml

All purpose flour...1.5 cups or 180g

Baking powder...1.5 tsp or 6g

Salt...1/2 tsp.

Granulated sugar...1/2 cup or 100g

Cooking oil (neutral oil like Canola)...1/2 cup or 125 ml

Milk...3/4 cup or 180ml

White vinegar...~1/2 tbsp. or ~7.5ml

Baking soda...1/2 tsp or 3g


Whipped cream

Heavy whipping cream...1 cup or 240 ml

Orange zest...from 1 orange

Granulated sugar...4 tbsp. or 50g

Milk powder...2 tbsp.


Method
  • Apply some oil to 2, 8 inch cake pans and line them with parchment paper

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit a 180 degrees Celsius

  • Zest one big orange or 2-3 clementines and extract fresh juice from them

  • Strain the orange juice and discard the pulp

  • Take 180 ml or 3/4 cup of lukewarm milk

  • To this at around half a tablespoon of white vinegar

  • To a large bowl add half a cup or 100 grams of granulated sugar and half a cup of 125 mL of any neutral cooking oil

  • Give the ingredients a quick whisk and then add half a teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 cup or 60ml of fresh orange juice

  • Whisk the mixture till it turns glossy. This should take around 30 seconds or so

  • The milk should have slightly curdled by now. To this, add half a teaspoon of baking soda and mix.

  • You will notice that the milk starts to bubble up and turn frothy immediately. If that doesn't happen you should probably use fresh baking soda

  • Add the milk in and whisk everything well

  • Sift the dry ingredients in

  • Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using the “cut and fold method”. This method prevents over mixing the batter and makes the cake nice and light

  • Once the dry ingredients are mixed in whisk briefly to break up any clumps that may have formed

  • Divide the batter equally into both the cake pans

  • Even out the batter with your spatula. Swirl around a Chopstick or a toothpick to get rid of any air bubbles

  • Bake the cakes in your preheated oven for around twenty minutes or so or till a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean

  • now let the cake cool down completely in the refrigerator


  • Next let's prep an orange for filling the cake: cut an orange into thin slices. It's easier to do this with the Rind intact.

  • Carefully peel off the rind and you will end up with this cute little orange flowers

  • For this cake we need 7-8 slices of these orange flowers


  • Now lets prep an orange for garnishing the cake: Cut an orange into thin slices with the orange peel intact

  • Find 4 slices of similar size and cut them in halves

  • We need 8 halves in total

  • Let's make a delicious whipped cream frosting

  • Pour 1 cup or 240 ML of cold heavy whipping cream in a large bowl

  • Add the zest of one orange in it

  • Add 4 tablespoons of granulated sugar and add 2 tablespoons of milk powder

  • Milk powder helps in stabilizing the whipped cream

  • Start whipping on low speed for approximately 30 seconds and then switch to medium high speed and whip for a minute or so till stiff peaks form

  • Time to build our cake

  • I'm using a cake board here but you can totally use a flat plate instead

  • Apply some whipped cream onto the cake board
