Mix the sugar with the juice of the oranges and heat in pan until it forms a syrup. Make holes in the warm cake and pour syrup over it.

An alternative topping is a whisked carton of Double or Whipping Cream, spread on top of the cake and cover with a broken flake or chocolate chip pieces or like my picture below cover with fruit and finish with a large spoon of creme fresch.

  1. I replaced 25g of the flour with cocoa powder and added about 50g of roughly chopped plain chocolate, and, yes, it is delicious. I’m also going to try a dash of Cointreau and maybe an orange flavoured cream cheese topping to jazz it up a bit for a party cake.
