  • 7 large eggs
  • 305 grams of flour (2 cups)
  • 120 ml of oil (½ cup)
  • 300 grams of sugar (1½ cups)
  • 180 ml of freshly squeezed orange juice (¾ cup)
  • 10 grams of baking powder (1 packet)
  • 1 teaspoon of high-quality vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of orange or lemon zest
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (338°F). Use an angel food cake pan with a 24 cm diameter for best results.
  2. Make the Meringue: In a mixer with a balloon whisk, whip the egg whites and half the sugar on high speed for 3-4 minutes to form a stable, soft meringue.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Gently fold in the egg yolks. Mix the oil, orange juice, zest, and vanilla extract, then fold into the egg mixture until just combined.
  4. Prepare the Flour Mixture: Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually fold half of the flour mixture into the egg mixture, then add the remaining flour, folding gently to avoid overmixing.
  5. Bake: Pour the batter into a lightly greased cake pan. Tap the pan gently to release any air bubbles. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cooling times may vary depending on the oven.
  6. Serve: Once cooled to room temperature, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
