You guys know how much I love experimenting with and incorporating fruity flavours in my desserts, while I have come to realise the increasing demand for eggless and vegan recipes. So, I mixed up both of those things to create this vegan orange loaf cake!
It is super duper moist with the freshness of orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice.
The one thing I love about baking with oranges is the aroma it fills your entire kitchen area with. It literally makes you drool and trust me, you won’t be able to wait until the cake is done baking, haha.
One tip that I would like to give is to always use fresh extracts when making such recipes. You will see that there is a great amount of difference between recipes prepared with fresh extracts and those that use store bought products. You can also top this cake with orange flavoured whipped cream or an orange glaze!
