Plumcake dairy free with orange

This afternoon we’ll have a play date at our place with one of Andrea’s friend. As she is lactose intolerant, I have prepared a cake with almond milk and sunflower oil instead of butter. I have added also some oranges and the result is super, very delicious! (Andrea and I have already tasted it…). So I have thought to do a post.

This is a light and soft cake that can be ideal for tea break or breakfast.


  • 180 gr/6 oz flour
  • 65 gr/2 oz cornflour
  • 180 gr/6 oz sugar
  • 200 ml/7 oz almond milk
  • 2 free-range eggs at home temperature
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp fine salt
  • 1 orange (pulp and juice)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100 ml/3½ fl oz sunflower oil


COOKING TIME: 45 min 175C / 350F / Gas Mark 4


  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Beating eggs with caster sugar and salt for at least 5 minutes
  3. Add in a bowl, sifted flour with cornflour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder. Then add milk, oil, orange juice and pulp to taste
  4. Fill a baking tray for plumcake
  5. Bake for 45 minutes and let the cake stand


  • This is a very versatile cake, you can add whatever you have in the kitchen, nuts, almond, cakes..
