  • Vegetarian Diet

    Diet based on cereals, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits and other animal foods such as honey and eggs. Excludes meat, fish, mollusks.


  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients, the flour (sifted), sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk all wet ingredients, the egg yolks, vegetable oil, water, orange juice, orange zest and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • Prepare the meringue by beating the egg whites in a mixer on very high speed. When fluffy, add the sugar, a little at a time. Beat for 2 minutes. When ready, set aside.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula.
  • Add a small amount of meringue to the mixture and mix well.
  • Add the remaining meringue and fold into the mixture, gently. This needs to be done gently so that the mixtures volume doesn’t decrease.
  • Grease just the edge of the cake pan and only up until the middle of the cylinder which is at the center of the pan. Be very careful not to grease the bottom or walls of the cake pan.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan. Bake for 1 hour.
  • Remove from oven. Invert the cake pan (with the cake still inside) and place over a large bottle. Allow to cool completely, in this position, for 2 hours. This way the cake won’t lose any of its volume.
  • When cool, remove from cake pan, carefully, and serve.
