Orange Mawa Cake is a rich, eggless dessert, very rich in orange flavor and Mawa lends a rich and a caramelized milky taste. I love the combo of orange and Mawa .It is absolutely delicious. . I love baking with fresh fruits, like their fresh flavours.
Already posted few cakes & muffins with fruits . I used two whole oranges which give it a fiercely fruity flavor and deep orange color . Tutti-frutti and cashew made for a great mouth-feel and a true tasting pleasure. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue and fulfilling at the same time.This cake came out that is very soft, moist and delicious and Perfect tea time snack!
