A very versatile and adaptive recipe. You can adjust the ingredients by substituting oranges with blueberries, strawberries to give it a total different flavor. Have a lemon sitting the fridge, how about adding fresh lemon zest to this recipe.

I have used cake flour to prepare these cupcakes. Other option would be – use 1 1/4 (one and one fourth cup ) cup of all purpose flour mixed with 1/4 cup of cornstarch. Whisk to sift the mixture together. Proceed as instructed.

Store bought heavy cream is used in the making of these cupcakes but feel free to substitute cream with 1 cup of half and half.

    Hi! I see Milk as part of the ingredients list. However I don’t see any step mentioning the addition of milk, or is it part of “extracts” in step 9?

    Hi Ruchi…I tried this recipe and my cupcakes were so nice in the oven but when I took it out it’s get dense and got the cracks on the top…
    Please let me know what I’ve done wrong

    • Ruchi says:

      Did you use Cake flour to bake the cupcakes?

      Cupcakes has crack on top – this happens if the cupcakes were baked for too long or if the oven temperature is too high. I would suggest, lowering the oven temperature to 325 degree F and place your cupcakes at the center setting, not at the top.
      Hope this answers your query!

    Hi Ruchi , Can i substitute the 1 cup heavy cream with 1 cup of yogurt for this eggless orange recipe

  4. Nisha says:

    Hi ruchi plz tell me what is the difference between all purpose flour or cake flour or can I substitute them to maida.

    • Ruchi says:

      Cake flour adds a tender delicate crumb to a cupcake that why I prefer baking with cake flour. For that use 1 1/4 (one and one fourth cup ) cup + of all purpose flour (maida) mixed with 1/4 cup of cornstarch. Hope this helps!

  5. Aila says:

    Can i make a cake out of this?

    • Ruchi says:

      Yes you can.
      Baking time will vary. Bake the cake for 35-40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Happy Baking!

    Very nice receipe. Plz explain the substitution part of heavy cream

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks Archana! Substitute heavy cream with 1 cup of half and half. Half and half is a dairy product that consist of equal parts of light cream and milk. I am unable to attach a picture but search up google and write “half and half cream”.
