Orange Sponge Cupcakes

Few weeks ago, I bought a new oven ROWENTA OC7891. This oven is good for cooking as it has a bigger capacity for cooking two dishes at a time as compared to my previous oven. It can cook/bake from a cold start in other word you don't have to preheat the oven. There is a good function which I like about is that bread dough can be proof in it (I haven't try out this function yet.).

I had tried out dishes but no time to try out any bakes. Last week, I had planned that today I had to try out bakes with my new oven. Today, I had spent half a day baking only sponge cakes. Unfortunately, I faced some problem during baking. Sigh! :( I tell myself that I had to find more time trying out other recipes in order to understand this oven.

Recipe source from 'Nasi Lemak Lover' - Orange sponge Cupcakes. I like to said Thanks to 'Nasi Lemak Lover' for giving a clear details on this recipe. My boys loved it so much and they hoped next round I could add cocoa powder to this orange sponge cupcakes. ;p
