Eggless Orange, Raisin and Pistachio Cake

Eggless_Orange_Raisin_Pistachio_Cake_1Cakes taste better when we add fruits. Fresh fruits make the cake softer and flavorful.

Here I baked Eggless Orange Raisin and Pistachio Cake with fresh orange juice and orange zest. This orange cake was so soft and every member of my family loved it very much.

I used a fresh orange to extract juice and orange zest.
