About this recipe: A moist orange sponge with decadent chocolate orange morsels and is topped and filled with a rich American-style frosting.
You can, of course, use two sandwich tins instead of one deep tin, but i find cutting the cake in half produces a more even middle surface to frost.
This cake is a beautifully tasting one!! It was very hard not to eat the terrys chocolate orange, but I managed!! So I decided to use 2 sandwich tins instead of making one big cake, as I feel this is more 'cakish'! My family have loved the cake. It's a fun recipe to try and not too difficult either! The only annoying bit I found was the sponges seemed quite greasy when I was taking them out of the tins, but not problem!! - 26 Aug 2012
I made this cake using 2 oz of butter, sugar, flour and i egg with the rind of an orange and juice from half. Then for the topping I used Terry's chocolate orange mixed with double cream to make a gnache. It was divine and so easy. The kids polished it off in just over a day. - 09 Jan 2013
I tried this cake and it was lovely. Although at times it was a little confusing but I got there in the end. I have one tip to make it more orangey is: instead of using milk use orange juice to really bring the orange flavour through. - 14 Dec 2013
