(Makes 1 cake)

To make the topping:

Finely slice the oranges and satsumas into rounds.

Dissolve the caster sugar in the water and bring the syrup to a boil.

Add the orange and satsuma slices and simmer for 15-20minutes, turning half way until the slices are tender but still holding shape.

Cool, then transfer onto a cooling wire in a single layer.

To make the cake:

Place the cake mix, ground almonds, orange juice, Greek yoghurt and olive oil into a bowl and beat for 1-2 minutes to form a smooth batter.

Place in a well greased and lined 9” cake tin.

Bake in a preheated oven 180°C (°F) Gas Mark 4 for 45-50 minutes until firm to the touch.

To make the syrup:

Place the orange juice and caster sugar into a small saucepan for the syrup and heat gently until all the sugar has dissolved.

Skewer the cake all over and douse with the orange syrup.

Arrange the slices all over the cake.

Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water and drizzle over the cake.

Hello, I thought I would just contact you with some feedback after purchasing some of your cake mixes. I am extremely pleased with the cakes and I think they are delicious. I will certainly be buying more in the near future as they are simple to make. Thanks,

Mr. Grosvenor
