How to make Orange Cake with Condensed Milk
Please check recipe card below for exact measurements of each ingredient used and also for the detailed instructions
- Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Keep the butter out and melt it in the microwave or on the stove-top.
- Grease 2 6 inch cake tins or one 8 inch cake pan with butter and line it with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 160C.
- In a wide bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda, along with orange zest.
- In a another wide bowl, take condensed milk, add orange juice, butter and vanilla essence to it and whisk well to combine.
- Now slowly add dry ingredients to the wet in batches. Use a whisk to combine while you add the dry flour mix. After adding all the dry flour to the wet mix, use a spatula and combine well.
- The batter will be of pourable consistency. I didn't add any other liquid apart from the mentioned ingredients.
- Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake tins and bake them in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a tooth-pick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
- Oven temperature varies from oven to oven, so keep an eye on the cake after 35 minutes.
- Once done, remove the cake from the oven, let it sit in the tin for 5 minutes, then carefully unmould the cake onto a wire-rack. Let it cool completely.
- The cake can be stored on the kitchen counter for 2 days, if storing for more days, i would suggest refrigerating it in an air-tight container.
- While serving the cake from the fridge, reheat each slice for 20 seconds and serve warm.

- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 190 ml Orange juice ¾ cup
- 90 grams melted butter ½ cup
- 1 can condensed mik 400 grams tin
- ¼ teaspoon Orange zest I have used lime zest also
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
- Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Grease 2 6 inch pans with oil and line it with baking paper. You can also use one 8 inch pan.
- If using fresh orange juice, prepare it now. I got ¾ Cup of Juice from two Mandarin Oranges. Grate the Orange Peel for some Zest.
- In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and orange zest
- in another large bow, mix together condensed milk, orange juice, melted butter and vanilla essence.
- Now slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet in batches and mix to form a batter. I use a whisk while mixing the flour into wet so it mixes without any lumps.
- After adding all the dry into the wet, use a spatula and mix everything together gently in one direction.
- Now divide the batter into the two prepared cake tins. Gently tap them to release any trapped air.
- Bake the cakes in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.. Mine was done by 40 minutes. Oven temperature differs from Model to Model, so keep an eye after 35 minutes.
- Once done, remove the cake from the oven, let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes to cool. Then slowly unmould it from the cake pan on to a wire rack and let it cool completely.
- Allowing the cake to rest is very important before removing the cake from the tin. Been there and done that, be patience or you will end up with half the cake in the pan and half in your hand.
- Let the cake cool completely. You can either frost it with your favorite frosting or can serve it as such. Cake can be stored on the kitchen counter for a day or two. If storing more it is better to refrigerate in an air-tight container.
- While serving cold cakes from the refrigerator, reheat the slice for 20 seconds and serve warm.
