Delicious Chocolate Orange Cake Recipe

Chocolate and orange are a classic flavour combination. This quick and easy recipe creates a crowd pleasing showstopper that will go down a treat.

Ingredients

  • 100g Heritage butter
  • 3 large Heritage eggs
  • 175g Heritage self-raising flour
  • 300g Heritage sugar
  • 2 oranges, grated
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 70g dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tub thick chocolate icing
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and blend thoroughly.
  3. Divide into two floured baking tins and bake for 25 - 30 minutes (or an hour if you’d prefer to use one tin). Remove from the oven if the cake ‘springs’ back up when you prod it.
  4. Allow the cakes to cool for 10 - 15 minutes.
  5. When the cake has cooled, spread a thick layer of chocolate icing on top of one sponge and sprinkle with orange zest. Repeat with the other sponge, then sandwich them together.

Top tip: Change up your icing flavours by putting a layer of vanilla icing in the middle - you could jazz it up even further by mixing it with orange food colouring for a real punch of colour!
