Giant Jaffa Cake
An unusualy flavour, so this can be a real hit at parties! For lovers of the orange chocolate combination.
Cream together the sugar and butter in a large bowl
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing between additions
Munch up a whole orange in blender (skin and all!) and add to the creamed mixture.
Add the chopped dates (which can be done by popping them in the blender at the same time as the orange), vanilla and salt to the mixture
Stir in the flour and baking soda ( dissolved in the water)
Pour the batter into a lined and greased tin and smooth out evenly
Using an entire kingsize block of chocolate, poke pieces of choc (2 squares together is good size) into the batter. Jam in as much in as possible
Smooth the batter over the top of the chocolate
Bake at 160 degrees for 45mins or until cooked (definitely better on the slightly undercooked side!)
Serve warm with whipped cream or icecream and for extra decadence, chocolate sauce
For sauce, in a pot gently melt cream and 1/2 block of chocolate.
