Orange Yogurt Cake

My husband and I just came back from Matunga, one unique place in Mumbai that also called as mini Madras, when I decided to make this simple cake. It was late afternoon, and I thought it would be good to have afternoon snack to accompany our afternoon tea.

I am so happy with the result; soft cake with fresh orange flavour. And...hey, it doesn't require to use the mixer! Just mix all ingredients, pour the butter on the pan, send to the oven... and... taarrrraaa, a very delicious light cake is ready.
Actually according to the recipe, it's required to use an 8-inch round pan, but I don't have it. So I used my 8-inch square pan. Don't worry, it doesn't affect the flavour of the cake :D
