Eggless Orange Moist cake

Standard

Eggless Orange Moist Cake but I could call it a 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and a Diet Cake. As of now I would say that I am better in baking, thought of trying out moist cake. This is was my second attempt with moist cake and it was a big hit in family and among my daughter’s friends. As X-Mas season started, stay tuned for more cakes and cookie recipes.

I have used palm sugar instead of sugar which is good for diabetics, oil and orange juice instead of butter and egg which reduces the fat. And so I call this cake as 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and Diet Cake. Let us move on to the recipe…

Orange Juice

Standard

Oranges are one of the most familiar summer fruit and I prepare orange juice very now and then not only on summer, even in winters but with Luke warm water. Orange comes with too much of nutrition, mainly they are good in folic acid and folic acid is most important for women’s health.

Glucose plays an important role in summer. Usually glucose taste good, when combined with orange juice instead of sugar… too healthy, an apt and tasty drink for summer. Kids love this lot.

Moreover, this juice is very good for pregnant women, which helps to get rid of diabetics during pregnancy and a good source of medicine during diarrhoea. Let us move on to the recipe…
