It doesn’t matter if you are vegan or not, this cake is a simple and yet wonderful base for all your creations. It also happens to be healthy. Italians are about good food, whether vegan, vegetarian or not. I believe in using a piece of a very good organic butter rather than artificial substitutes, and am aware of keeping my eyes open, as not all vegan ingredients are good for you. But this cake is, as it uses only real ingredients. Bake it with or without chocolate, with or without a layer of jam, but please make sure you bake it!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g unbleached plain flour, sifted
200g organic vegan white cane sugar
4 tablespoons potato flour
240ml organic soy milk
2 teaspoons organic baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
1 orange, finely grated zest
60ml organic extra virgin olive oil
100g organic vegan dark chocolate chips
icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 20-cm cake tin with baking parchment.
  2. Put the sifted flour, sugar and potato flour in a large bowl. Using a balloon whisk, stir the dry ingredients together, then start adding the soy milk in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Once it is all incorporated, whisk in the baking powder, vanilla and orange zest, and then the oil. Stir in the chocolate chips, if using.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 35 minutes, until lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  4. Leave to cool completely in the tin before inverting on to a plate. Dust generously with icing sugar and cut into slices to serve.
