  9. After 40 minutes, check by inserting a toothpick in centre of the cake if it’s done. If toothpick comes out clean, take it out otherwise bake it for further few minutes until done.
  10. Take the tin out and let it cool a bit. After some time, take the cake out of tin and let it cool completely on a cooling rack.
  11. Once it’s cooled, divide cake it into 2 parts.

Recipe Notes
  • Butter, juice and eggs should be at room temperature.
  • I have used freshly squeezed orange juice in my recipe, however you can use the market bought too.
  • You can get the orange zest by grating the orange peel. For that just wash the orange and grate it’s peel before squeezing the juice out.
