Orange Sponge Cupcakes


After hunting around for quite sometimes, the freelancer finally started work on Monday to help up with the outstanding tasks. Phew... feel so relief that I can answer to those who are chasing after my butt for the stuff lol. I can also "steal" some of the times to do as many posts as possible heeheehee...

Anyway back to my bake. As I am looking out for good sponge cake recipes for some events, I remember this orange sponge cupcakes that I had bookmarked sometimes ago which received good reviews. If you are keen to bake, do drop by Sonia's blog as she has clear and detailed explanation.

Recipe adapted from Nasi Lemak Lover

Ingredients : makes 11 cupcakes
25g corn oil (I used sunflower oil)
35g fresh squeeze orange juices
3 eggs (large), cold from fridge (I used 4 small eggs which weighed about 185g)
95g caster sugar (I reduced to 85g)
100g top flour or cake flour
1/4tp fine salt
1 orange rind

1.    Mix corn oil and orange juices together, set aside
2.    Mix flour and salt together, sift them twice, set aside
3.    Remove eggs from the fridge, add into the mixing bowl, add in caster sugar, immediately beat it till pale, thick and fluffy, I beat till ribbon stage (if use KA mixer with balloon whisk, 3mins at speed 8-9, 10mins at speed 4-5, 2mins at Speed 1-2, total time 15mins ).
4.    With mixer running at speed 1-2, add in orange rind, add flour spoon by spoon, then add in corn oil + orange juices, do not over mix. Remove mixing bowl, use a spatula to fold the batter till well combined.
5.    Pour batter in a lined 12 holes muffin pan until 90% full. Lightly tap on counter top twice to remove air bubbles.
6.    Bake at pre-heated oven at 170C for 25mins at middle rack.

Although the cake is not 100% successfully bake as the middle of the cake sunk in, and also probably I had over baked slightly, the cake is on a little dry side. However the cake is still velvety soft and spongy with hint of orange taste, light and refreshing.
