Cakes with Arbequina Bio

We propose a very Christmasy homemade dessert recipe with which you will learn to make nothing more and nothing less than your own Christmas polvorones 🎄.

The recipe is very easy to make, with few ingredients and also very healthy because the ingredients it carries are very natural and quality.

The best of all is that the recipe incorporates our Extra Virgin Olive Oil Bio Arbequina Le Jardin de Vanessa providing your body with all the benefits of our ground gold.

And now to the kitchen to prepare your best version of polvorones!👇


  • ️250g flour.
  • ️125g powdered sugar.
  • ️125ml of Arbequina Bio “Le Jardin de Vanessa”.
  • ️½ cup of sweet aniseed.
  • ️½ tablespoon ground cinnamon.
  • ️Zest of 1/2 orange.
  • ️3 tablespoons sesame seeds.



  • We heat the oven to 160°C, heat up and down without fan. Sift the flour on a baking tray and put it in the oven for about 25-30 minutes so that it loses the moisture. Move the flour around so that it toasts on all sides. Remove the flour from the oven and let it cool. Once cool sift it into a bowl with the powdered sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and mix.
  •  Finally, add the liquids little by little and finish mixing until a homogeneous and compact dough (you can add little by little more organic extra virgin olive oil and aniseed oil until you get a dough with consistency).
  • The dough is now ready to prepare the portions, circular in shape, about 5 centimeters in diameter by 1.5 centimeters wide. And we are placing them on the baking tray on parchment paper.
  • To decorate them, we add the three tablespoons of sesame to toast it in a frying pan without oil, over medium heat and stirring until golden brown.
  • Once ready we add a little on each polvorón. Bake the polvorones for about 30-35 minutes until toasted.
  • Attention because if you overdo it they will have a hard texture.
  • When they are ready, take them out of the oven and let them cool before eating them.
  • And now it’s time to eat and enjoy this delicacy alone or with others!
