Number of serving: 6
Flour - 225 g [about 1 1/2 cups + 2 tablepsoon ]

Baking Powder - 2 teaspoons

Baking soda - 1 teaspoon

Butter - 100 gms,at room temperature

Condensed milk - 400 g/1 can

Milk - 200 ml

Yogurt - 4 tablepsoons

Vanilla extract - 2 teaspoons OR 1 tablepsoon - freshly grated Orange zest

For the Orange-Cocoa Buttercream frosting:

Butter - 1/2 cup,softened

Icing sugar - 2 cups

Cocoa Powder - 3 tablepsoons

Orange juice - 4-5 tablepsoons

Orange zest - 1 teaspoon


  • Grease and line the bottom of a 9 round cake tin with greaseproof paper/baking parchment/butter paper. Preheat the oven at 150 degrees centigrade.
  • In a mixing bowl, assemble the flour, baking powder and baking soda, mix with a spoon and sieve once to make the mixture uniform.
  • In a bowl assemble the butter and the condensed milk and beat (with a hand mixer or a wire whisk) until the mixture is combined, about a couple of minutes.
  • Mix in the yogurt and beat again. Pour in the milk and beat until the mixture is well mixed.
  • Stir in the flour mixture and mix with a spoon, whisk or the legs of the hand mixer before starting to beat again. This will prevent the flour from getting dispersed outside the mixing bowl.
  • Beat until the mixture is uniform and smooth and there are no lumps. This shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes with an electric hand mixer/beater.
  • Be careful not to over beat as this tends to make the batter stiff which might result into a harder textured cake. Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for an hour at 150 degree centigrade.
  • For the Buttercream - Beat together Butter and cocoa powder.Mix in the icing sugar and orange juice alternately till you get a smooth glossy frosting.Mix in the zest and refrigerate till required.
  • To assemble the Cake:
    Place the cake on a cooling rack and trim the top[mine was crowned a bit]. Moisten with a few tbsps Orange juice[optional]. Apply the frosting on the sides and top evenly and cover with Chocolate curls and Chocolate cigars. Remove carefully to a serving plate. Chill and serve!!
