Add orange zest and pulp, fold it gently, till the batter becomes smooth and soft. The batter should be of pouring consistency.

Fold the batter gently by using cut and fold method. Over beating makes the texture of the cake hard.

Place the cake tin in the pre heated oven and bake it for 30 to 35 minutes at 190°C.
