  • 250 millilitres Soy Milk
  • 55 grams Vegan Butter melted
  • 60 grams Vegan Yoghurt
  • 4 tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 160 grams Polenta
  • 160 grams Plain Flour
  • 100 grams Caster Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Rose Petals optional, for decoration


  • Add the soy milk, vegan butter, vegan yoghurt and 2 tablespoons of the orange juice to a large bowl and whisk together.
  • Add the polenta, flour, sugar and baking powder to the bowl, and whisk well to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into a 23cm cake tin which has been greased and lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake the polenta cake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the top is golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Brush the remaining 2 tablespoons of orange juice onto the cake, then leave to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tin. 
  • optional: Decorate with orange slices and rose petals.


  • This recipe yields a cake with a subtle sweet flavour. If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can either increase the sugar to 150 grams, or soak the cake in sugar syrup rather than orange juice.
