Vegan Jaffa Brownies

Vegan Jaffa Brownie

This cake marries the deliciousness of a naughty gooey chocolate brownie and the wonderful zesty jaffa cakes. It's really easy to make and even better to eat. Yummyyyyyy.



1/2 Orange (Juice & zest)
2 cups plain four
2 cups caster sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
pinch salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 (ish) cup water


1 dessert spoon marmalade (the one with bits in)
1/2 Orange (Juice & zest)
1/2 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 cup icing sugar
(water may be needed depending on how juicy the orange is!)

To make the cake

1. Preheat oven to 175c
2. Sift flour and cocoa into a bowl.
3. Add sugar, oil & salt
4. Grate all the zest of the orange and put around 3 tsp in the cake mixed. Set the rest aside.
5. Juice half the orange. Pour the juice into cup measure. Add water to make up to one cup worth of liquid and add to the cake mixture.
5. Mix well and pour into a greased baking tray. (9 x 13inch is good size)
6. Bake for about 25 - 30 min OR until the top is no longer shiny.
7. Leave to cool for about 15 mins before adding the topping.

To make the topping

1. Mix 1/2 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup icing sugar.
2. Slowly add the orange juice, bit by bit until you have a smooth thick mixture.
3. Add 1/2 teaspoon of zest and mix well.
4. Set aside. In a saucepan put the (large) dessert spoon of marmalade and remaining juice (there should be some) and heat until runny.
5. Prick the cake lightly and pour over the hot marmalade mixture until covered. Leave to soak in.
6. When the cake is cool, evenly spread the icing over the top. Sprinkle on a little of the zest for decoration.
