My husband loves home made cakes. I frequently bake muffins that always revolve around my son’s taste. So today I decided to bake a orange cake with raspberry. I was certain that my son wouldn’t like that tangy taste so I had to whip cream to satisfy him. It was so tempting that I couldn’t wait for my husband to bite the first slice.
1 cup plain flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1tbslp Baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ cup Sugar
½ cup oil ( approx 6 tblsp Butter)
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1tblsp orange rind
1cup fresh raspberry
Preheat the oven 180.c. Grease the baking tray.
Shift the flours, baking powder and Salt
Cream butter and sugar until sugar is well incorporated
Add eggs and beat till light and creamy
Pour orange juice and rinds and mix well.
Fold flour into the batter
Add raspberry and gently mix it.
Bake 45 min or until golden brown
½ cup whipped cream
1/2 cup icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence
Whip the cream and gradually add sugar and essence until it is light and fluffy. Keep it in the fridge 15mins
½ cup raspberry
¼ cup sugar
½ cup water
Combine sugar and water on a sauce pan and boil it till sugar melts. Add raspberry and cook it for 5 mins till the sauce thickens.
Cool the cake and slice it horizantly. Spread the whipped cream on one half and drizzle couple of spoon of raspberry sauce. Place the other slice on the top and drizzle it with sauce and serve.
