Eggless Orange Cake with Apples

Cakes are such a versatile dessert that you can give it the flavour of just any thing under the sun and it absorbs the flavours of the ingredient well enough. But then there's a line of caution there as to not to try out just anything under the sun :-)
Well,Continuing with my penchant for desserts, I went on to experiment with a citrus twist on cake baking. And i choose oranges to flavour my cake.
A piece of advice here before you attempt your own orange cake. Be sure you would like the bitterly zingy orangy taste of the zest. If not scrape off the entire zest of the oranges you use for this cake. I personally prefer that hint of zesty taste so I go for every shred of it.
Ingredients :
200 gm condensed Milk
100 gm flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda bi carbonate
60 ml ( 80 gm ) melted butter
1 tsp orange essence
2 seedless oranges
2 apples peeled, cored and sliced.
Process :
Pre-heat the over to 180 C before starting with the preparation.

Cut the oranges into quarters, put them into a mixer along with the condensed milk, butter and orange essence.
Mix the flour, baking powder and soda bi carb.
Add the orange mix to the flour mix and fold them well.
Grease a baking tray with butter and sprinkle flour on the surface. You may put a butter paper at the bottom.
Layer the sliced apples at the bottom of the tray. Make at least two layers.
Pour in the batter into the baking tray and place it in the oven immediately.
Let the cake bake at 180 C for 25 min. Let it cool down when done.
It's best served hot with a dollop or orange marmalade or any other fruit jam that you would imagine to go well with an orangy spoonful :-)
