- 2) Split the mixture into 2 equal halves, transferring 1 half into a new bowl. Add the Cocoa Powder and Milk to 1 half and the Fresh Orange Juice to the other, ensuring that both mixtures are (individually) well combined.
- 3) In a lightly greased round or square tin spoon the individual mixtures in alternating each mixture, when all of the mixtures have been spooned into the tin take a skewer (or handle end of a wooden spoon) and swirl together to create a marble effect.
- *Ensure that the mixture totally covers the bottom of the tin and is equal depth throughout*
- 4) Bake in the centre of a preheated oven (190oC/375oF) for 25 minutes or until the cake is springy to the touch. Allow to cool in the tin before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
- 5) To make the frosting for the top, in a bowl mix together the sifted Icing sugar and 1tbsp of fresh Orange Juice, slowly adding the 2nd tbsp if needed until the frosting is smooth (Spreadable). Spread the frosting over the top of the cake and leave to set fully.
- 7) Place the Chocolate into a glass bowl and melt over a pan of boiling water, then using a piping bag, pipe fine lines of the melted chocolate in a pattern of your choosing over the top of the cake.

Chocolate Orange Roulade

- In a mixing bowl, whish the egg yolks and sugar until thick and creamy. Sift the cocoa powder over the mixture and fold in thoroughly. In a second bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff and gently fold into the chocolate mixture.
- Spoon into a greased and lined 30 x 20 cm (12 x 8 inch) Swiss roll tin and level the surface. Bake in preheated oven, 180oC, 350oF, Gas Mark 4 for 25 – 30 mins or until firm. Cool for 5 minutes, then cover with a damp tea towel and leave to become completely cold.
- Sift icing sugar over a large sheet of greaseproof paper. Invert the cake on to the paper and carefully peel off the lining paper.
- Place the double cream in a bowl and whip until thick. Add the fromage frais, icing sugar, orange ring and liqueur. Mix gently. Spread the mixture over the cake, then roll up like a Swiss roll with the help of the greaseproof paper. Transfer the roulade to a serving dish, dust with more icing sugar if needed, and serve within 2 hours. The cake may crack when rolled. This is quite normal.
