  • If you like Terry's Chocolate Orange, you're going to love this mouth-watering Terry’s Chocolate Orange fondant cake recipe.

    Terry’s Chocolate Orange fondant cake is much easier to make than it looks and is the ultimate centrepiece for Christmas Day. Don’t tell your friends and family what’s inside and watch their faces light up when they realise it has a melting chocolate orange middle. This is not your average chocolate cake – this recipe bakes a whole chocolate orange in a soft, chocolate sponge. Cutting into this pud and watching the rich chocolate centre ooze out is pure heaven – not to mention eating it.  This recipe serves 10 people and will take only 55 mins to prepare and bake. This Christmas dessert is perfect served with lashings of double cream and is ideal if your family don’t love a traditional Christmas pudding, because who doesn’t like chocolate? We think it’s best eaten on the day but if you’re lucky enough to have any leftovers then you can always microwave individual portions the next day and top with more cream, it’ll still taste just as delicious.

    • 175g caster sugar
