All about the orange...

Ebi-kun had his aikido grading a couple of weeks back and on Sunday he was upgraded to orange belt! One happy little boy! We were all surprised because we thought he had to do one more exam before he would get orange!



This of course called for a celebratory cake... what is better than an orange cake? A chocolate orange cake of course!

I washed and sliced the orange and put it on the bottom of a silicon pan and sprinkled with brown sugar then used a standard chocolate sponge recipe, added some orange peel and the juice of an orange to the mix for good measure. it could have handled more chocolate I feel or maybe choco-chips. It was lovely though and a good way to celebrate!

  1. Congratulations to your son! He looks so pleased at his achievement (and rightly so). The cake description had me salivating, though I've just had my breakfast. Still have your book on my tbr pile - I read one book a month for my book group and seem to find it hard to fit any more in! I will, though, I will - eventually.....
