Recipe: Chocolate Orange Marble Cake...

Browsing through my cookbook I came across another recipe I couldn't wait to try and share with you and this time it was a delicious looking 'Chocolate Orange Marble Cake'. With Chocolate and Orange being two of my favourite flavour combinations, I couldn't wait to get baking!


250g self-raising flour
250g caster sugar
250g soft butter
4 large eggs
2tsp milk
3tsp cocoa powder
Juice of 1 large orange
Orange flavoured chocolate

Step One // Preheat your oven to Gas mark 4 or 180 C and grease a baking tin.
Step Two // Beat the eggs, butter and sugar together in a bowl with an electric whisk.
Step Three // Gradually fold in the flour using a wooden spoon.
Step Four // Separate your mixture into two bowls trying to make them as equal as possible.
Step Five // Add the milk and cocoa powder to one bowl and then orange juice to the other.
Step Six // Spoon the mixture into the baking tin taking alternate dollops of each mixture and then use a skewer to create a marble pattern.
Step Seven // Place in the oven for 45 minutes and cook until golden and risen and a skewer comes out clean. 
Step Eight // Leave to cool for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Step Nine // For the topping, melt your chocolate orange in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and spread or drizzle onto your cake. 

And there you have my Chocolate Orange Marble Cake.
