A simple, rich, moist cake for those who love the choc orange flavour combo. BONUS- it keeps so well in the fridge!

Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 225gm Butter (salted)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Whole Orange, cut into 4, peel and all
  • 1 cup NESTLE Dark Choc Bits (and a handful for snacking on)
  • 2 cups S/R Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • I 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 2 Star Anise
  • 1 The rind of 1 orange finely sliced
  • 1 The juice of that orange
  • ** PLEASE NOTE- the first 6 ingredients are for the CAKE, the next 6 are for the SYRUP


  1. Cream Butter and Sugar in a mixer
  2. Blend Orange pieces and eggs together in a blender until completely obliterated and combined
  3. Combine with butter and sugar in mixer
  4. Add flour and chic bits and combine until smooth batter consistency
  5. Bake in a large cake tin at 180 for 50 mins (may require more time if not fan forced)
  6. Meanwhile add all syrup ingredients to a small pot and bring to the boil on stove, then simmer until slightly thickened (approx 5-10mins).
  7. Allow cake to cool for 10 mins before poking through the top with a skewer to allow for the syrup to soak through evenly. Pour syrup over and enjoy with ice-cream or cream (or both as my husband likes to do)

Notes... If you are conscious of the sugar content you can remove the syrup, making this a lighter (marginally healthier but not really), fluffier cake. Apologies for the half eaten finished product, it seems we couldn't wait!
