Christmas is round the corner and it’s just not right without a little bit of baking. I have been baking non-stop for the last few days and loving every moment of packing and sending these goodies to friends.

Nothing can beat the rich spiced Christmas cake loaded with caramel, brandy, vine fruits and nuts. But when short on time, I look forward to my short-cut recipes.

Here are a few shortcut Christmas cakes that I bake and share with my friends. These goodies take almost no time to bake and are a best alternative to the rich Christmas cakes if you are short on time. I really enjoy these simple and fuss free and stress-free festive recipes.

Let the whole-wheat Orange cake cool completely before slicing an serving.

    Will boiling orange juice will change its taste?

  • sanjeeta kk (author) said:

    @Ayasha, bring the juice to boil and take it off the flame. Over boiling or let the orange juice bubble might make it taste bitter.
