Ingredients

  • Dry Ingredients:
    • 240 gms  whole wheat flour/atta
    • 15 gms  dark cocoa powder
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • Zest of 1 orange
    • 100 grams chocolate pieces/callets
  • Wet Ingredients:
    • 110 gms butter
    • 150 gms castor sugar
    • 180 gms hung curd
    • 1 tsp vanilla/orange essence
    • 140 gms water
    • 3 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • Decoration:

Instructions:

  • Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
    • Line an 8-inch round or square baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the whole wheat flour, dark cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
    • Add the orange zest and chocolate pieces to the dry ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, beat the butter and castor sugar together for 4-5 minutes using a whisk or a hand mixer, until light and fluffy.
    • To the butter and sugar mixture, add the hung curd, orange juice, and vanilla/orange essence. Mix until well combined.
  • Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients:
    • Gradually combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, stirring gently. Add water in parts to adjust the consistency as needed.
  • Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin. Smooth the top with a spatula.
    • Bake on the middle rack of the oven with both rods on for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cooling and Unmoulding:
    • After baking, let the cake sit in the tin for a few minutes on a cooling rack.
    • Carefully unmould the cake from the tin and let it cool completely on the rack.

Orange Glaze (Optional)

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange (optional, for extra flavor)

Simply mix the powdered sugar with orange juice until you achieve a thick but pourable consistency. Stir in the orange zest if using. Drizzle over the cooled cake.

Notes:

  • Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature to achieve the best texture.
  • You can adjust the amount of orange juice and zest according to your taste for a more pronounced orange flavor.
