What better way to spend a cold rainy weekend than baking? I’ve become a massive fan of lemon drizzle cakes, which inspired me to try a jaffa cake themed drizzle. Drizzle cakes seem ideal for freezing in portion sizes for snacks at work and still being moist when I come to eating them.

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 170g self raising flour
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 170g butter
  • zest of 2 oranges
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • Milk

Drizzle:

  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • 110g icing sugar

Method

  1. Turn on oven to 180’C and grease a loaf tin
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, eggs and zest
  3. Split the mixture into 2 bowls. Into one of them add the cocoa powder and a touch of milk until it’s the same consistency as the other
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the loaf tin, then spoon the plain mixture ontop before running a knife through creating a marble effect
  5. Cook for 35 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean
  6. Mix the orange juice and icing sugar in a bowl. When cooked, poke all over with a skewer then spoon the orange juice mixture ontop.
  7. Leave until cool then slice and serve.
