Orange Sandwich cake


I don't know what is it about Orange cakes, I  can never get enough of it. Store-bought, homemade, mom or mom-in-law made, neighbour made, someone made, even enemy made (not that I have enemies) I just heart orange cakes in any form- eggless or with egg or butterless or even flourless... phew!!! This is another orange cake that my Mommy-in-law made that we just finished in like a few minutes. This is Mrs B.F Varghese's recipe that she followed and I shamelessly took photos of and proudly uploading.

For the Cake:
Butter: 1/2 kg
Sugar: 1/2 kg powdered
Eggs: 1/2 kg
Flour: 1/2 kg
Baking Powder: 4 tsp
Rind of 2 limes
Boiling Water: 4 1/2 dsp


Grease and flour a baking tin. Grate the Lemon rind. Sift the flour with the baking powder. Cream the butter, sugar and the lemon rind until light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time to the mixture gradually beating all the time. Fold in the sifted flour, add hot water and bake at 180C . Allow to cool completely.


For the Filling:
corn flour: 8 dsp
Orange Juice: 3 cups
Rind of 2 oranges
Sugar: 1/2 kg
Lime Juice: 4 dsp
Butter: 4 dsp

Grate the orange rind. Add the sugar, orange juice, lime juice and cornflour and place on fire. Keep stirring, cook until thick.



then add butter and remove from fire and allow it to cool.

Cut cake into two like in the picture below.
