  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan/gas mark 4). Grease and line the base of a 20cm tin with baking paper. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the water and set to one side.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
    • 180ml Water
  2. 2

    Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well until fully combined. Then add the flour and salt to the mixture and fold through until you have an even consistency.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 125g Butter (unsalted) softened
    • 200g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 2 Egg(s) (free range) large
    • 1tsp Vanilla extract
    • 250g Plain white flour
    • ¼tsp Salt
  3. 3

    Roughly chop the whole orange into chunks by hand and then blitz in the food processor, skin and all. The consistency should be similar to a chunky marmalade. Add this to the cake batter along with the water and bicarbonate of soda, and stir.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 1 Orange(s)
  4. 4

    Add the chocolate and stir through to combine. Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and bake in the oven for 45–50 minutes until a skewer comes out clean when inserted.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g Dark chocolate chopped
  5. 5

    Once baked right through, remove from the oven and allow to cool fully on a wire rack. Serve and enjoy.
