250TH POST & EGGLESS CHOCOLATE SPONGE CAKE WITH ORANGE CREAM FROSTING

Hi Friends,


Today I reached to my 250th post and wish to celebrate with all of my co-blogger friends, readers and viewers. Without your continuous support, I could not reach so far. Thanks a tons dearies. Shall we bake eggless cake today? Here, these cakes are for you buddies, simple eggless chocolate sponge cakes with orange cream frosting. 


Noone wants to miss out on anything chocolaty. These cakes are really soft and spongy; I felt love with their colour. Cakes have very homely look with very handy ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:
FOR MAKING CAKE:
1 Cup All Purpose Flour (maida)
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Confectioner's Sugar
1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt (curd)
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Cup Butter - at room temperature (unsalted)
A Pinch of Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Essence

FOR ICING:
4 tbsps Unsalted Butter
1/4 Cup of Icing Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
2 tbsps of Orange Pulp

METHOD:
FOR MAKING CAKE:
Preheat oven to 180 C / 350 F for 10 minutes. Grease cake pans with butter and sprinkle some all purpose flour, and rotate the pans. So that the flour is completely covered into the pans. It means, cake doesn't stick into the pan. ( I taken two pans, one is 5" diameter and the otherone is 7" diameter.

Sieve all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder two times and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix sugar and butter. Beat the mixture for 2 minutes.

Add curd in it. Beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes again.


Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder to the mixture little by little. Whisk continuously for 5 minutes. Add vanilla essence in it. 


Pour the batter into the baking pans and place the pans on the centre rack. Bake for 35 mins exactly or till a toothpick inserted in the centre and comes out clean. Switch off the oven. Let it cool inside the oven for another 5 minutes. Let those cool on the cooling rack. Invert those cakes on plates. let them cool completely before frosting.
FOR ICING:
Keep the butter at room temperature. Beat icing sugar and butter nicely. Add vanilla essence and orange pulp in it. Mix well. Spread on cakes with a spatula and decorate it as per your liking.

Keep cakes in refrigerator for 3-4 hours till icing sets nicely. Serve chilled and enjoy!
