This is very light, spongy and moist cake with full of orange flavor. The icing is also orange flavored, so it is double dose of it.

Here I have used freshly squeezed orange juice. You can use store bought juice but I strongly recommend to use the fresh one which gives the best flavors.

The downside of using store bought juice is that you won’t have zest. As a result you will miss the orange flavor in the cake. In that case, you add few drops of orange extract.

Whenever you bake anything with oranges, the smell or aroma will be all over your kitchen and house. It just smells divine that I can’t have patience till cake gets cool off. But sadly, I have to wait till it cools completely and then have to wait till icing dries out. Huh life is hard!!

I always love chocolate cake but dear hubby always love cake made with citrus like this eggless orange cake or lemon cake. I have made this round cake. But you can make it in cupcake form as well. Only baking time will be less.

After having a slice, your stomach will not feel heavy because it is so light. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

** zest is outer orange part of the fruit. Grate it using fine grater and do not grate the inside white part which is bitter.
