photo 13

This weeks bake was following a request from Jake my boyfriend wanting something that he ‘likes’ rather than all my healthy bakes. Then on Monday I started my new job at Berry Gardens I found out that they were taking part in the Macmillan coffee morning cake sale on Wednesday so I thought I should bring my bake along. This turned out to be good as I placed 3rd with 1st and 2nd both being two variations of a chocolate orange cake!

  • 325g Plain flour
  • 100g Caster sugar
  • 225g Salted softened butter
  • Zest of one orange

  • 50g Dark brown sugar

  8. Remove form heat and allow to cool.
  9. Remove the shortbread from the oven and allow to cool.
  10. Pour and bread the caramel over the shortbread and allow to set slightly, you can speed this up by putting in the freezer.
  11. Melt the dark chocolate using your preferred method but make sure that there are few lumps remaining.
  12. Warm the juice of one orange and add to the chocolate and mix, it may cause the chocolate to seize and become thick then add a little milk until it forms a smooth paste and can be easily spread.
  13. Melt the milk chocolate in a pipping bag.
  14. Spread the dark chocolate over the caramel and smooth. 38A4F140-8472-465B-BD1E-629F71F4EDDB
  15. Then pipe the milk chocolate in lines across the top. Then use a cocktail stick dragging up and down to create the feathering look.
  16. Chill in the fridge or freezer until set.
