Chocolate and Orange Cake with Chocolate-Fudge Sauce

1 Feb

Hello lovely NVC readers!

As you have probably noticed our posts have been a bit few and far between recently. There have been significant technical difficulties (broken laptops and awful internet connections) which have stood in the way of regular posts. However we are still eating vegan food and being naked (at least some of the time!) It has also been super super cold over winter which has meant we have trouble being as naked as often as we would ideally like.

Thanks for sticking with us and we should have lots of lovely recipes and articles coming to you over the next weeks and months.

Speaking of lovely recipes, here is a truly excellent cake that one of our co-op mates  kindly made for us.


Ingredients: 250 g margarine / butter, 300g brown sugar, 400g dark chocolate, 300g self-raising flour, 100g cocoa powder, half tsp salt, zest of 2 oranges, approx 300ml orange juice, mandarin segments.

For the sauce: 200g dark chocolate, 150g fudge, splash of soy milk / regular milk

Preheat the oven to 180’ C.

Cream the butter and the sugar in a bowl. Melt the dark chocolate on the hob in a bowl over boiling water, and add to the mix. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and add in the zest. Give it a good mix, and slowly add in the orange juice, until it looks about right.

Grease two cake tins, and position the mandarin segments in the bottom. Pour the cake mixture on top. Place in the oven for about half an hour, it’ll be ready when a knife poked into it comes out clean.

To make the chocolate sauce, simply melt together the chocolate and fudge with a splash of milk. It is seriously delicious.

    Hey folks – sorry to hear about the technical probs. Glad to hear you are still cooking and naked despite the rain and cold! I am managing to stay naked albeit some goose pimples and coming up with new recipies that I hope to share on here soon – loving your site. Any chance there may be another naked art exhibition and tea party this year? I haven’t been to any of your events yet but most definitely would travel to Manchester if anything takes place! Happy nude cookin folks!

      Were having a meeting in a couple of weeks to talk about upcoming events! We’ll put a potential tea party on the agenda 🙂 xx

        Selfies are currently taking the world of social media by storm. Especially those with the record for the most people in a photo. In terms of a slightly more traditional and appropriate idea for a future sketching event/tea party – how about trying to get the most naked vegan cooking folk into a sketch/painting and call it a Cookie?
