Orange Polenta Cake: Recipe

Oh my god. I’ve baked a lot of cakes and I’ve eaten a lot too. I can honestly say that this is the best cake ever! So soft and moist it’s incredible!


I’m sorry the picture is so terrible. It got eaten up faster than I could get my phone out.

250gm butter
250gm sugar
4 eggs
150gm yogurt (I used mullers orange and chocolate yoghurt)
200gm almond meal
150gm polenta
3 tsp baking powder
2 oranges – zested and juiced

Pre-heat oven to 180’c. Line a 20cm round baking tin with baking paper. In a mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar till pale.
Add one egg at a time mixing until combined.
Add the yogurt. Stir.
Add the almond meal, polenta and baking powder, folding until almost combined. Then add the juice and zest from the oranges, stir to combine.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour.

Once cool, I created an orange syrup by melting sugar with the zest and juice of one orange and poured it over the cake and sprinkling some sugar for added texture.

It’s so delicious, I beg you for your own good to bake one yourselves. I bought a 1kg bag of polenta (ground cornmeal) from Asda this week for £1!

Enjoy baking!
