This is a really simple cake with an excellent blend of orange and chocolate taste. Since we're using whole oranges here together with the crust, I strongly suggest you to use organic oranges or before use, wash them well and soak in water with added baking soda to neutralize the pesticides.

  •     1 larger orange
  •     180 g sugar
  •     3 larger eggs
  •     100 ml of sunflower oil
  •     100 ml of yogurt
  •     250 g flour
  •     1 sachet baking powder
  •     a pinch of salt
  • 100 ml of water
  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 orange sliced ​​into circles
  • 120 g dark chocolate
  • 250 ml heavy whipping cream

  1. Preheat oven to 180 ° C. Cover the bottom of a smaller baking pan with baking paper and coat the sides with butter.
  2. Put the chopped orange in a blender and mix well.
  3. Then using a mixer, mix the sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl, add the blended orange, oil, and yogurt and mix briefly.
  4. Then add the flour and baking powder and a pinch of salt and mix with a wooden spoon until the ingredients are combined.
  5. Pour this mixture into the baking pan and bake for about 35-40 minutes at 180 ° C. (Time depends on the oven.)
  6. After baking, leave to cool and cook the syrup, boil the water and sugar for 10 minutes, add the orange slices and let them boil together until the orange has released the juice but pieces must remain whole, and then pour the cake with the syrup.
  7. Make the glaze by heating the whipping cream and chocolate until the chocolate melts, mix well and pour over the cake. Decorate with the orange slices.
Note: You can divide the cake into 2 parts horizontally and apply a cream filling if desired and you will get a delicious little cake.
