  • 2 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour divided
  • 1 1/4 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup Lukewarm milk
  • 10 tbsp Unsalted Butter melted and cooled/Lukewarm
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Zest

Orange Sugar Syrup

  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice I used fresh


  • Combine 3/4 Cups Flour, Instant Yeast, sugar and salt.
  • In a large bowl, add Lukewarm milk and melted butter. To this add the flour and yeast mixture gradually and mixing for alteast 2 minutes with your stand mixer or hand mixer.
  • Slowly Add eggs one at a time and keep on mixing.
  • Gradually add the remaining flour and orange Zest.
  • Beat Vigorously for 2 minutes.
  • Please note that the batter will not be as runny as a normal cake batter, but on a thicker side.
  • Spread the batter or dough into a prepared pan. I used a 10 inch bundt pan. (For preparing pan, oil or butter it all over and then dust a teaspoon of flour)
  • Let it rise for 1 hour. I had a very cold and rainy day and hence my dough did not rise as much.
  • Toward's the end of the cake rising time, preheat the oven to 180 C.
  • In the meantime Prepare the sugar syrup (Instructions below).
  • Bake the cake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Mine was done in 20 minutes.
  • Once the cake is done Brush the cake with sugar syrup on the exposed crust.
  • Let it cool in the pan for 5 mins.
  • Invert the cake on pan or plate set over parchment paper.
  • Brush remaining syrup over the Bottom exposed part (or the inverted part)
  • Let it cool completely.
  • Serve it with Whipped Cream and some fresh fruits or enjoy as is.

For the Sugar Syrup

  • Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Add Orange juice and remove from heat.
