Eggless Fresh Orange Cake with Chocolate Chips

BM # 51
Week : 2, Day : 4
Theme : Baking
Theme of the week: Tea Cakes

I am not a fruit person, but when it comes to bakes, I love the citrusy flavors a lot. Orange is almost my favorite, almost because I love lemon too, of course chocolate dominates all flavors. So while making this orange cake I used fresh orange juice and added some chocolate chips to satisfy my chocolate cravings along with that citrus flavor. So for Day 4 it is a Orange Cake with Chocolate Chips.

The cake is made with whole wheat flour, but can be substituted with APF or one can use half and half. The wheat based cakes are comparatively dense but I know if I would make with APF no one would eat. 
The cake turned out very soft and tasted divine, I drizzled some chocolate and piped out some cream before serving.

1 cup whole wheat flour 
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt

  5. I have tried lemon in cakes before, but dont recall an orange based cake. Its hard to tell from the picture that these are whole wheat, because it looks perfectly spongy and light.

  6. What cream do you use for piping? does the amul cream whip up to piping consistency?

  7. No Amul does not whip up, I normally use Riches , this is soya cream which is sweetened.
