Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and line the base of a 1.2-litre loaf tin. Put all the cake ingredients into a bowl and beat with a hand whisk or wooden spoon for 3-5 mins, until light and fluffy. Spoon the mix into the tin and level the top.
  2. Bake for 40-50 mins, until golden brown and firm to the touch. Meanwhile, heat the orange juice and sugar gently in a small pan, stirring until dissolved. When the cake is cooked, remove it from the oven and spoon over the orange mix. Leave to cool in the tin, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Break up the chocolate and melt over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave on Medium for 1-2 mins. Drizzle over the cake and leave to set.

Beautiful cake, added the zest of 2 Oranges as other had suggested and turned out perfectly. Sponge was light and moist, will definitely make again.

I used zest of 2 oranges and 100g of bournville so it wasn't too intense.
I also made up an orange jelly and poured it onto a baking sheet, then when set i cut a rectangle out big enough to cover top of cake, stuck it down with apricot jam and then spread the chocolate all over the top...Absolutely stunning and just like a proper jaffa cake!

Baked mine in the loaf tin and the cake came out like the picture. Taste: Yummy! I used rind of 2 navel oranges, reduce sugar to 180g. I baked it one day ahead of the party so that I need not rush. I like more chocolate on the cake so I use 100g of dark chocolate with 50g of sugar for the drizzle. Result: It is all snapped up at the party, gone within the hour!

Mine is in the oven and it looks amazing! The house smells so good I have had to open the windows....just to make the neighbours jealous!!!! Going to try it with limes next time.....chocolate and limes. One of my fave combinations!

Made this cake over and over again, really big hit with the family! Poked the cake allover with a toothpick and instead of pouring the orange juice syrup on top warmed some marmalade and poured that instead. Brushed with 3 or 4 layers of melted dark chocolate. YUMM!!!

Simple, easy to make and tasty. It is perfect for tea time. I used the zest of 2 oranges, and 100g dark chocolate for the topping.
I would definitely make this one again.

Beautifully moist cake and so easy to make! I'll probably add the zest of two oranges next time to make it more orangey :-)

Really good recipe, my tin was on the larger side, next time I will put in the zest of three oranges just for the extra zing. I am tempted to try the Orange Marmalade in the middle or perhaps even towards the top, finishing it with a chocolate ganache. This is a lovely recipe and liked by all!

This was a hit with the whole family. I made one with dark chocolate and the other with Terry's chocolate orange, the Terry's complimented it greatly.
