2 tbsp of milk

2 tbsp of orange juice

2 packets of orange flavour jelly

1 1/4 cups of dark chocolate

2/3 cup of cream

In a bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, butter, eggs and milk. Mix until you have a smooth consistency, then add the orange juice and the zest of 1 orange.

Step 2/5

Pour the cake mix into a lined cake tin and bake the cake in the oven at 350°F for 30 minutes. Leave the cake to cool, then unmold it from the tin.
