    This is a nice cake and as the title suggests, is one most cooks could do with ingredients they always have to hand. I used blood orange marmalade and it gave a good tang to the cake. I preferred it warm from the oven as a pudding cake than cold the next day.

    This is a lovely and rich chocolate orange cake. Mr lilham thinks it is too rich and prefers to eat it with yoghurt to cut the richness. Everyone else loves it as it is.

    I am not a big chocolate cake fan... But my work colleagues voted this 9/10

    The chocolate and marmalade work very well together, and the cake is excellent and the taste certainly implies a little more fuss and effort went into making it than actually did.
