Chocolate Orange Cup Cakes

Try this new take on the chocolate cup cake. By using the zest and juice of two oranges you can add to both the flavour and the sweetness.


  • 200g (7oz) margarine
  • 100g (3.5oz) cocoa
  • Three tbs honey
  • Two large eggs
  • Two oranges
  • 120g (4.5oz) self-raising flour


Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Melt your margarine, honey and cocoa in a small pan over a low heat.

Carefully grate the zest of your two oranges and squeeze the juice. Stir the juice and zest in with the saucepan ingredients. Then sieve your flour into a large bowl. Stir in the hot liquid. Beat your eggs and stir those in too.

When thoroughly mixed, spoon the mixture into paper cake cases placed on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until risen. Dust lightly with cocoa powder to finish off.
