Ingredients

  • 1½ tablespoons of Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 165g of Self-raising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
  • 4 Eggs - separated
  • 50g + 100g of Caster Sugar
  • 175g of Butter, at room temperature
  • 30ml of Orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Orange liqueur (Cointreau)
  • 1 tablespoon of Orange zest

Methods

1. Preparation - Heat the oven to 180°C. Grease an 8-inch round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Sift together the flour and salt; set aside.

2. Orange Batter - Using the Bosch MUM5 HomeProfessional Kitchen Machine, beat the butter in a mixing bowl at Setting 5 until creamy, for about 1 minute. Add 100g of sugar and beat at Setting 7 until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes. At Setting 5, add the egg yolks 1 at a time until well mixed. Add in the orange juice, orange liqueur and orange zest until combined. Add in sifted flour gradually until just combined.

3. Egg Whites - In a clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites at Speed 4 until foamy. Increase to Speed 5 and gradually add 50g of sugar. Increase to Speed 7 and continue to beat the whites to soft peaks. Do not overbeat. Fold in the egg whites into the orange batter until well blended.

4. Cocoa Batter - Pour half of the orange batter into a bowl. Add cocoa and fold very gently.

5. Assemble and Bake - Pour the cocoa batter into the prepared cake pan, followed by the orange batter. Bake until a toothpick or a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool the cake on a wire rack and chill for at least 2 hours.

6. Serve - Cut the cake into slices and serve chilled.
