Olympic Cake By Betigul From Sales

Britain, London can be proud of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. We feel very lucky and proud to have been part of it. It was fantastic games, phenomenal success of London 2012. It was very exciting time for London and for visitors to the city.

Therefore during the period we inspired by Olympics and decided to celebrate Olympics and Paralympics with theme party for my son and his friends. This is our recipe to remember amazing moments.

Preparation: 20min

Cooking: 55min

Icing: 15min

JJ Ingredients

SPI028 Tate Lyle Demerara Sugar

SAU093 Freshers Cocoa Powder

FRU004 Oranges

FLO030 Wrights Plain Flour

Other Ingredients

100g plain dark chocolate, broken into pieces

3 eggs

2 oranges

280g Demerara sugar

240ml sunflower oil

25g cocoa powder

250g plain flour

1½ tsp. baking powder

50gr milk chocolate chips

White and Olympic colours icing (ready to roll)

Step 1:

Cook oranges in boiling water for 30 minutes until get soft.

Step 2:

Cut oranges in small pieces and discarding any pips.

Step 3:

Whizz the orange in a food processor until smooth, let cool.

Step 4:

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave for 2 minutes on high, stirring after 1 minute. Let it cool.

Step 5:

In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs, sugar and oil.

Step 6:

Gradually beat in the puréed orange.

Step 7:

Mix with the cocoa, flour and baking powder.

Step 8:

Stir in the cooled melted chocolate.

Step 9:

Add chocolate chips.

Step 10:

Mix well and pour into the tin.

Step 11:

Bake in the centre of the oven for 55 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed in the middle. (Check after 45 minutes and cover with foil if it is browning too much.) Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 12:

Dust the work surface with icing sugar. Rub a little icing sugar onto your rolling pin. Start to roll it with an even pressure until it is the thickness of a £1 coin.

Step 13:

Brush the cake with honey or jam to help the icing to stick. Lift the icing using the rolling pin. Start by laying the icing at the back of the cake and flop it down to the front. Use the flats of your hands to smooth icing over the cake.

Step 14:

Give Olympic ring shape to coloured icings, with cookie cutter.

Step 15:

The cake is now ready to decorate. Put gently Olympic rings top of the cake.

Step 16:

Wrap your cake with ribbons (Olympic colours). And now you can celebrate Olympic success…
