  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Grease and line the sides and base of the cake tin.

    Tip: Using a 49% cocoa solids chocolate is best for this recipe unless you like a darker tasting chocolate. You can use a 70%+ cocoa solids chocolate but make sure it’s a cooks version otherwise it might split when melted in the pan.

    Tip Stirring the flour and sugar together before adding them to the chocolate / butter mixture stops you getting lumps of flour in the mixture that can be a monkey to get out!

    Now for the orange. Remove the brown stalky bit and chop it into quarters, then each quarter into half so you have 8 chunks of orange. Blitz the pieces in a food processor or with a handheld stick blender until they are the consistency of a chunky marmalade.
