Honey Chocolate Recipes


Orange Chocolate and Honey Coconut Cake
Cake Ingredients:
2 Oranges
3.5 oz dark chocolate
6 tbs  honey
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup olive oil
2 cups boiling water
Glaze ingredients:
1/2 cup honey
3.5 oz dark chocolate
1 orange, segmented

Place oranges whole in a large saucepan and cover with water. Place on the stove over medium high heat and boil for one hour topping up the water halfway through if required. Remove from water and set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 320 degrees and line a spring form cake tin with baking paper.
Half oranges and remove seeds then place the oranges (skin and all) in blender and blitz until smooth.
Break dark chocolate into pieces, place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for short bursts (20 secs at a time), stirring between each, until chocolate has melted.
Transfer orange mixture to a large mixing bowl and add melted chocolate, honey eggs and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Sift in coconut flour and baking soda and beat again till combined. Add olive oil and boiling water and stir until a batter like consistency forms.
Pour into prepared cake tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside until completely cool then remove the cake from the pan.
For the glaze, break chocolate into small pieces and set aside. Place honey in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Be sure to stay close to the honey as the moment it boils it rises up and will be very hot. Once honey has boiled remove from heat and stir in chocolate till completely combined. Set aside for a few minutes to cool slightly, then pour over the center of the cake allowing the glaze to drip down the sides.

A little tip for the glaze is to place four pieces of baking paper under the sides of the cake to collect the glaze as it pools down the side. Then remove the paper once the glaze has started to set.

Garnish with fresh orange slices if desired
