Chocolate Orange Cake

Very Yummy!
This is one of my favourite cake recipes; i love it because it always produces a nice moist sponge and is relatively quick and easy to make. However, it is a rather rich cake so I would recommend having a small slice - although some of my friends have managed to eat huge slices in the past! Hope you enjoy this cake as much as I do...  

Cake Mix:

75g cocoa
3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
100ml boiling water
100ml orange juice
300g golden sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of orange essence
180ml light olive oil
200g self raising flour

To Decorate:

300ml pot of fresh whipping cream
glace cherries

This cake always turns out well and looks great!

What to do:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degree's C
  2. Mix the cocoa and bicarbonate of soda with the boiling water - once dissolved add the orange juice and leave to one side
  3. Prepare tins
  4. Beat sugar and eggs together until light and creamy.
  5. Add vanilla and orange essence and continue beating
  6. Add the flour
  7. Add the cocoa solution - beat until consistency of double cream
  8. Pour batter into tins
  9. Bake for 25-30 mins
  10. When cool decorate with freshly whipped cream and cherries!

I love cutting into a freshly homemade cake!
