  • I love baking using combination of flours for my bakes, you may use only wheat flour or Maida. Change in flours will reduce the quantity of liquid ingredients so use accordingly.
  • Seiving multiple times will give a soft and spongy cake so do not avoid that.
  • Good quality orange marmalade is important for a beautiful flavor.
  • The amount of sugar required will depend on the sweetness of the marmalade used.
  • Use little milk if the batter is too dry.
  • Replace the egg with 1/4 cup curd for eggless version.
  • Check the baking time and temperature with your oven.

    1. Replace eggs with apple sauce or banana puree.. You can google the exact quantity required for an egg as I have not tried so I can’t give much information. Also the taste of the cake will change, you’ve to experiment and see.
