Chocolate orange cake

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/150C Fan/Gas 3. Grease a round 23cm-deep cake tin with butter and line the base with baking powder.
  2. Break the chocolate into squares and put in a bowl with the butter. Stand the bowl over a pan of simmering water until the chocolate has melted - make sure the base doesn't touch the water. Leave to cool slightly.
  3. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Stir the ground almonds, orange zest, juice and yolks into the chocolate. In a different bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Add the sugar 1 tbsp at a time - after each addition, whisk until stiff again. Add a quarter to the chocolate mixture and gently fold inches Then fold in the rest of the egg whites.
  4. Turn the mixture into a cake tin and bake for 35-40 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out and finish cooling on a wire rack. Serve dusted with the cocoa.
