Eggless Orange Cake With Raisins

Egg less Orange Cake With Raisins 

I had never made an Orange Cake before and I have tried and was really pleased with the result. . I used two whole oranges which give it a fiercely fruity flavor and deep orange color and Raisins made for a great mouth-feel and a true tasting pleasure. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue! The cake was light and spongy with orange zest in every bite when I’d finished this cake and was enjoying the wonderful moist texture.  It’s really easy to make and the end result is a delicious, moist, extremely tasty cake. . ‘Orange Cake’ is a perfect tea time snack which is a great hit in my family!
