Dehydrated orange sponge cake

If you are looking for a spongy orange sponge cake recipe, with that homemade flavor of the sponge cakes of a lifetime and easy to prepare, don’t miss this recipe!


  • 5 Large eggs (size L)
  • 275 gr Sugar
  • 150 ml Sunflower oil
  • 10gr Orange powder or ground Vegenat
  • A little orange zest
  • 275 gr Flour (preferably pastry)
  • 15 gr Yeast


  1. We will start by putting the eggs and sugar in a large bowl using the electric whisk until we have a creamy, whitish mixture that has at least doubled its volume.
  2. Lower the mixer to the minimum speed and add the sunflower oil until it is dissolved in the mixture. In the same way, we add the orange powder or grain (depending on which we have chosen) from Vegenat. Finally, we integrate the orange zest into the mixture.
  3. On the other hand, in a separate bowl we lightly mix the flour and yeast to then incorporate them into the dough that we had prepared before through a sieve or strainer so that the flour is aerated.
  4. Once the dough is prepared, the next step will be to transfer it to the mold where we want to bake it. For the size of this cake, the ideal would be a mold between 22 cm and 24 cm in diameter, if possible, better removable. In addition, it is advisable to line it with baking paper or grease it, so that it is easier to remove from the mold later.
  5. We put the mold with the dough in the preheated oven, and we will cook the cake at 180ºC, with heat up and down for about 40 minutes.


You can make the same recipe, but with 10g of Vegenat’s lemon powder or ground and you will have a delicious lemon cake. We encourage you to try it too!
