It tastes awesome both the ways!
- Check the cake batter sweetness before baking. If sugar is less add more sugar. Also if the cake consistency is thin add more flour. If the cake consistency is thick add more milk to it.
- Once the cake becomes nice brown on the top that means your cake is done.
- This would be a moist cake so keep checking. Please don’t over mix or over bake.

i’m back again. missed asking U one more thing.. do u use the normal oranges that we get in the mumbai markets??? ripe ones but the skin is still green…
i have seen pics of imported oranges(the skin too is “orange” in colour… the fanta color) in some blogs. hence the doubt.
I have used the imported one as most of the times they are sweeter then the normal oranges.
