Chocolate Orange Cake


This is a Nigella Lawson recipe from her website (so you can get it from there) and the only tweak I have made is to substitute the sugar for half as much of the  ‘light’ sugar which reduces the calories a bit. If you cut it into 12 pieces, each slice is 5 Weightwatchers pro-points. It is a lot tastier than it looks – the flavour is reminiscent of jaffa cakes but much nicer than those hybrid little freaks and it stayed beautifully moist for the three days it lived! Be careful not to burn your oranges to the pan like I did – I was out there ‘watching’ them but somehow got distracted by more beaded bauble trickery 🙂 which I will show you when I finish it.

About plymouthmaid

Oooh how to decide what are the most important things to say about me? That is hard. Is it what I do for a living? (Teacher of Maths, English and ICT). Is is my age? (nearly 50 boo hoo). Is it my family? (2 grown up lovely girls, an other half, Marley the daft spaniel and the rest of the family to numerous to mention). Is it my many hobbies? (patchwork and quilting, crochet, beading, gardening, cooking, poker, walking, digital scrapbooking, computer forums). You can be the judge as I don't know where this blog will lead as I am totally new to the blogging world but wanted somewhere to post some recipes I am developing..
