Blogmas day 21: Chocolate Orange Cakes… 🧡🍰

Today I experimented with making some cakes and I wanted to use “Terry’s Chocolate Orange” because it’s one of my favourite chocolates.

I have never blogged a recipe before so I don’t really know how it works… but I will sort of explain along the way haha.


  • 3 eggs
  • self raising flour 100g
  • cocoa powder 22g
  • Butter (marg) 120g
  • caster suger 120g
  • zest of orange
  • Chocolate orange

Step 1

First I measured all my ingredients out and then put them into my mixer and let that mix for a few minutes. Normally when I think it’s ready I like to try some just to make sure it tastes alright haha.

Step 2

Once it has mixed properly I then set all my cupcake cases out (I got these ones from Asda) and then put the mix into the cases evenly. Leaving some room at the top because they will rise.

Step 3

I think proceed to put them into the oven for about 15-20 minutes. They really do not take long at all so just keep an eye on them. I normally put a knife into the cake and pull it out and if there’s no cake on the knife that’s when it’s usually ready.

Step 4

Once out of the oven I leave them for a couple of minutes to cool down and then I piped some chocolate into the middle. I used this one from Asda that was already all done for me, all I had to do was stick it into the cake and squeeze.

Step 5

Then I left them to cool down for about another 10-15 minutes. Once cooled down I used some chocolate icing to decorate the cakes and then finished with a slice of Terrys’ chocolate orange on top!

Step 6 

Now you can relax and eat as many cakes as you want! I am really proud of myself and they actually tasted really nice!!

*I made about 12 cakes with the ingredients I listed but I then made another 12 cakes*

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed this one and my first ever food related post!

Let me know if you attempt to make these and send me pictures! What are your favourite cakes?
