Torta all’acqua


  • 200 g of sugar

  • 320 g of flour 00

  • 320 g of water

  • 120 g of sunflower oil

  • 16 g of baking powder for cakes

  • Grated zest of an organic lemon to taste


  1. Preheat the static oven to 180 °.

  2. Add the water, the oil and mix very well in a bowl.

  3. In a bowl, mix flour and baking powder sifted with the sugar.

  4. Gradually add to the bowl with water and oil and mix well.

  5. Stir quickly and pour into a well oiled and floured 22 cm diameter mold.

  6. Cook for 45 minutes.


  • I recommend that you let the cake cool for at least 15 minutes.

  • The cake can be filled with any cream.

  • I recommend covering it or stuffing it with orange marmalade.

  • If you prefer to avoid stuffing it further, I suggest you cover it with icing sugar.
