  • 2 large eggs
  • 125 g self raising flour

  • 100 g good quality orange marmalade + extra for spooning on
  • 50 g dark chocolate chopped into chips
  • Icing:
  • 80 g icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Line a 12 cup bun tray with 12 paper cake cases.
  • Place all the ingredients (bar the milk, marmalade and chocolate) into a cake mixer and mix at high speed until well combined.
