Chocolate Orange Sponge

What’s better than a chocolate orange? A chocolate orange Cake!

Most of us will have tried a chocolate orange at some point. Originally the chocolate orange was the chocolate apple, or Terry’s ‘Dessert Chocolate Apple’. The chocolate apple was what started the whole craze off although it only lived a short while, Terry’s started producing chocolate apples in 1926 but it was outshone by the Chocolate Orange, so in 1954 production of the chocolate apple stopped. But we are still eating chocolate oranges all these years later. The gorgeous combination of smooth chocolate with a burst of citrus in the orange just melts in your mouth, leaving you wanting more.

Chocolate orange cakes are often inspired by the famous chocolate, the combination works so well together, then add it to a cake and it’s a match made in heaven.

Sponge’s Chocolate Orange Cake

Our chocolate orange cake is so delicious you’ll struggle to keep it for long. Chocolate and natural orange flavours are swirled together to create a delicious marbled chocolate orange sponge. Buttercream is made with British butter and decadent chocolate, and there are three different drizzles that decorate the top.

They simply taste as good as they look. The delicious chocolate flavour just melts in your mouth as you get bursts of citrus from the orange in the sponge and the sumptuous buttercream ties it all together.
