This cake really is a must try. I mean it, it is amazing.Its full of orangery goodness. Its made using orange zest and marmalade which gives it that great orange zing.
You can keep this cake plain or decorate it with a glace icing, sprinkle with icing sugar, or if you want it very orangery cover it with more marmalade.
As you can see i decided to drizzle mine with chocolate then i changed my mind and decided to cover the whole thing in chocolate. It tasted like a Giant gluten free Jaffa Cake. Am not kidding. Even my man agreed and he is crazy for his Jaffa Cakes. For his birthday, Christmas and fathers day we have to add a pack of Jaffa Cakes to his pressie. Hes just crazy for them.
I hope you all try this cake. It is so good and will most likely become a big hit here in my house as we all love it. Really i made it before dinner and we spoiled our dinner. We could not eat it because we ate too much of this cake. Ooops!!
I made my chocolate glaze by just melting 50g of dark chocolate with 100g of milk chocolate and a teaspoon of Coconut Oil. The coconut oil keeps the chocolate glossy. It will harden but it will keep that glossy look.
