Standard 1 cup measures 240 ml


  • All-purpose flour – ¾ cup + 2 tbsp
  • Powdered Sugar – ⅓ cup
  • Unsalted butter – ¼ cup
  • Plain yogurt – ½ cup + 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp
  • Baking soda – ½ tsp
  • Orange juice – 1 ½ tbsp
  • Orange Zest – 1 tsp-2 tsp


  • In a mixing bowl add in soft unsalted butter and cream it using an electric beater or stand mixer. Next add in the powdered sugar and beat once again.
  • To this now add in the plain yogurt, Orange juice and Orange Zest beat once again.
  • In another bowl sieve together all-purpose flour ,baking powder ,baking soda and salt thrice ,now slowly add the flour in batches to the wet ingredients .Beat the batter once again so that everything is mixed evenly.
  • Now pour the prepared cake batter in any baking pan ,I used my paper baking tin .Preheat the oven at 180 Deg C for about 10 mins and then bake at 180 Deg C for about 30-35 mins or until a tooth pick when inserted comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely and then slice and serve.


Give enough standing time and then slice the cake as they are very soft they might crumble easily.
The baking time may vary from oven to oven.
If you prefer add in a drop of orange food colour to get the feel of the orange cake. But I strongly suggest not to add any artificial food colours.
