Orange Almond Cake

Orange Almond Cake

The refreshing aroma and flavor of orange and that slight crunchiness from almonds makes this cake perfect with a cup of tea.Orange and almond a great combo together. Its very simple to make and an easy goer for your kids.

You can see how pillowy soft it is and you will get that texture of almond in each bite as i sued almond powder too in this cake.If you don’t have almond powder ,(in this cake) you can ground it to a powder and use.It has great flavors of almond,vanilla and the refreshing taste from oranges.

I used to say that Kashif is not a big fan of such cakes .What he always prefers is a chocolate flavored ones,but to my surprise, this one he loved it and enjoyed. He wanted it in his tiffin box and i was so glad to hear that.Let this be a start for him to eat other flavored cake too. hehe!!
