When ever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.
Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes wont come proper even though recipe is correct)
Method: (With Step-by-Step pics)
Preheat oven to 175 degree. Line a cake pan with baking sheet (butter paper) and keep it ready.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl take sugar and sunflower oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well
Mix in condensed milk.
Add vanilla essence, orange zest and orange food color
Add the dry ingredients to it, about 3tbsp at a time mixing after each addition, just until combined. (all step from this step should be done in low/medium speed)
When you start finding it difficult to mix start adding curd and mix
Add fresh orange juice and mix until combined.
Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny). Pour the batter evenly into the cake pan.
Bake in the middle rack for 40- 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool. The cake tastes better the next day. Enjoy!!!!
