Eggless Orange Walnut Cake
Though I have been posting on all days of last week, I completely forgot that my blog is two years old. I got my camera for the first year of completion as a gift from hubby but this year we forgot. These two years has been a fun filled journey and I made a lots of friends. I learned many cooking and baking techniques in the last two years. When I look back on my baking knowledge before the blog, I can say that I have come a long way after these years. But I still need to go a long way. Recently I ordered a book from Reader’s Digest- Baking With Love. The book is a treasure house of recipes and tips. Today I went through those recipes and tried adapting a recipe to my taste. I made this cake to celebrate the completion of two years of blogging. The cake was so soft, fluffy and full of orange flavour with a crunch from the walnuts. I didn’t expect it this good. We loved it a lot and after two months, Sruti took a bite of the cake. She couldn’t resist the urge to take another piece but I had to restrict her as she is recovering from typhoid.
