Margaret's Plain Eggless Cake

Plain Eggless Cake with Creamy Chocolate FrostingHere's a great recipe for PLAIN EGGLESS cake. Even though there's orange juice in it, it's not an orange cake. The cake turns out moist and for me a thin layer of frosting will do (try Tracy's Creamy Chocolate Frosting). It's easy to make and best of all, you wouldn't think it's eggless.

2 1/2 cups (310 g) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup (117 ml) orange juice
1/2 cup (117 ml) milk (or orange juice if you want a stronger 'orangey' taste)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (225 g) melted butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. I use a 10 inch square (26 cm square) pan. Basically use a big pan.

2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda. Make a well in the center and pour in the sweetened condensed milk, orange juice, vanilla and melted butter. Mix well and pour into prepared pan.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely if you want to put on frosting or icing.
