Bolo de Laranga (Orange Sponge Cake)

Suzy Chaves


This recipe is similar to Pao de Lo (Sponge Cake), but the orange flavor really stands out. I was surprised at how easy it is to make. The best part of this cake is that it uses NO OIL & NO BUTTER which makes it a great low fat dessert. All you need are 5 basic ingredients that most of you have on hand everyday so it’s a great go-to dessert when you need something easy and quick.

How to Make Bolo de Laranga (Orange Sponge Cake)


  • 1Wash oranges and cut off the peels into very thin slices trying not to leave on any white rind. Slice the remaining orange into slices and cut off any excess membrane. In a food processor, add the orange peels and segments, 5 eggs, sugar & salt. Blend into a puree consistency. Strain the batter through a fine strainer into your mixing bowl. Discard any remaining segment in strainer. Beat the batter for about 15 minutes until foamy.
  • 2Sift flour and baking powder and add to the batter 1/4 cup at a time until incorporated. Line a fluted cake pan with parchment paper & slightly grease & flour the pan.
  • 3Add your batter and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • 4Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes, then invert right side up onto serving plate. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar and serve plain or with berries & whipped cream.
