Caramel Apple Cake preparation

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 16

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees, then line and grease a rectangular baking tray.
  2. Melt your Chocolate and Butter in a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, stirring continuously.

  3. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl. Add the caster sugar and eggs to the chocolate mixture and mix well on a low speed.
  4. Grate the zest of 2 small oranges, and add this along with the juice to the brownie batter.

  5. Finally, add the plain flour to the batter and mix well on medium speed until you have a thick brownie mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking tray and leave for 15 minutes to rest so the batter can develop a skin. Then, pop into the oven and bake for approx 25 minutes.

  7. Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. To finish, slice into squares and sprinkle over the remaining orange zest to decorate.
