Orange and cinnamon sponge cake

If you're short on time, the delicious cinnamon cake is just as good without the candied orange.

  • 3 units of Eggs
  • Flour for the mold
  • 250 g of white sugar
  • Grated orange peel
  • 250 g of sifted flour
  • Butter for the mold
  • 75 g of sunflower oil
  • 1 unit of Orange to decorate
  • 1 cc ground cinnamon
  • 1 cc of Vanilla scent essence
  • 170 g of whipping cream
  • 1 sachets of baking powder

For the syrup (optional)
  • 5 tsp of white sugar
  • 3 ud of strained orange juice


  1. Before starting, preheat the oven to 180ÂșC so that, when you go to bake, it is at the right temperature.

  6. When the dough is ready, grease a cake pan with butter well and sprinkle flour on it (you will have the ideal amount if you lightly tap the walls of the mold so that there is a very thin film of flour on the bottom and walls) .
  7. To finish, pour the dough into the pan and bake for 35 - 40 minutes.
  8. After that time, check that your cake is well baked and let cool on a rack.
  9. Cut the orange into slices no more than an centimeter thick and place on top of the cake. Now it's time to bathe it with the syrup.
