Orange Bundt cake

Yippee !!!!!! Celebration time again .Yes friends , yesterday for the first time in history I had 1000 plus page visits and I’m simply thrilled…I had bookmarked this recipe long back and was in my to do wishlist . The original recipe was of muffins,  but I baked it in a bundt pan . Bundt cakes are always my favourite . I like to to bake anything with less eggs and this recipe called for only 1 egg . I don’t like to bake recipes which calls for more than 2 eggs . I modified the recipe slightly .The cake came out super soft though I did not get the expected orange colour and after all the  taste matters . Amma liked the cake very much . I did not glaze the cake since my daughter doesn’t like icing and topping much . Last but not the least I want to thank each and every reader from the bottom of my heart. Keep supporting me same way and I will do my best.
