Chocolate Chip And Orange Sponge Cake

Another delicious sponge cake…This time using chocolate chips and orange flavouring…..Mmmm… 


300 grams of Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
250-300 grams of Butter or Margarine
250 grams of Caster Sugar

2 Packets of Dark Chocolate Chips

Zest and Juice of 2 Oranges/3 Tablespoons Of Thick cut Marmalade
6 Eggs
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
A Splash of Milk(If needed)
Firstly, cream the butter and sugar together, either by hand or with a food processor. Then crack the eggs, and mix into the now softened butter, with the vanilla extract, and zest of the oranges or if using, add the marmalade instead. Slowly add the flour, and fold into the mixture, if beating by hand. Pour all of it, if using in a food processor.Add the chocolate chips, and stir.  Use a drop of milk, if the mixture is too thick. The result should be a batter which is thick,but runs off a wooden spoon,creamy and smooth. Grease and line a baking tin with baking paper, a medium size should do the trick.

Pour the mixture into the tin and smooth with a wooden spoon. Bake at 150 degrees, for at least 45 minutes, or until golden and a skewer comes out clean from the centre of the cake. Cut into wedges, you should get about 8-16 slices of cake. To make a bigger cake, simply DOUBLE THE INGREDIENTS! Enjoy!!
