Eggless Orange Cake

My kitchen flooring was ripped due to some plumbing leakage and took almost a month for the all the plumbing work was done and a new floor was put up. It was today we got our kitchen decided to bake some cake, which my kids were after from many days..Although they wanted chocolate cup cakes, but for me something new...which I haven't baked..husband wanted lemon loaf, so thought of giving it a try..but then remembered there were lot oranges in my fruit basket and decided to bake an orange I have always telling you all that we are strictly vegetarian and do not use have to look for eggless version in my cake...So even if it is a cake which has eggs, I will make it a eggless version with lot of available egg substitutes, according, to why the egg was used in the cake and the quantity used...But while looking at different recipes I came across this plain sponge cake recipe here, which was very easy and tried it with fresh orange juice. So you can always visit the link to find the recipe in detail.
I love baking and get excited..Today I was baking after couple of months so took a little longer time in make sure I am doing the right way and all the ingredients are in proportion, which is very important in baking, So here I go with the recipe.

Cake Flour - 2 and 1/2 cups,
Baking Powder - 2 teaspoons,
Baking Soda or Bi Carbonate of Soda - 1 teaspoon,
Melted Butter - 1/2 cup or 125 grams,
Sweetened Condensed milk - 300 grams,
Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice - 1 cup,
Vanilla Extract - 1 teaspoon,
Vinegar - 2 tablespoon,
Salt - a pinch,
Orange Rind -  2 teaspoons,
Sugar - 2 tablespoons.

Preheat Oven at 180 degree celsius.
If You do not have cake flour use plain/all purpose flour.
To make cake flour at home is very easy,  measure a cup of plain flour/all purpose flour.
Then take away 2 tablespoons of flour from the measured flour and place it back in the flour bin.
Replace the removed flour with 2 tablespoons of corn starch to the plain flour and sieve couple of times to mix well.
Now we can proceed with the cake.
Sieve together the cake flour/plain flour with baking powder and baking soda couple of times to make sure the flour and baking powder and soda are mixed well.
Mix all the wet ingredients and orange rind well.
Then slowly incorporate the flour and mix.
Take care the batter is smooth without lumps
Grease a suitable baking pan.
Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 30 minutes.
But mine took 40 minutes, so it depends on the oven you bake.
Bake until a skewer comes clean and enjoy.
