Here’s a chocolate cake you can make on a BBQ. Seriously. Courtesy of Firepit Fridays – a little bit of summer fun from the lovely ladies in our development kitchen, Jess and Rosie.
Check out the recipe below.
What you'll need: (Makes 4)
4 Medium Oranges
125g Dark Chocolate
30g Unsalted Butter
1 Whole Egg
3 Egg Whites
2tsp Vanilla Extract
1. Cut the tops off the oranges and scoop out the flesh (you can eat this with yoghurt/ add to smoothies etc.). Keep the orange shells and their lids.
2. Melt the chocolate with the butter and 2 tbsp water to form a smooth mix. Mix in the whole egg and vanilla extract.
3. Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl to medium peak. Whilst still whisking, add the sugar a tbsp at a time and whisk until it reaches a medium peak again.
4. Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to loosen it, then add the remaining 2/3 of the egg white mix and fold in carefully, keeping as much air in the mix as possible.
5. Divide the mix between the four hollowed out oranges (it should fill them about 2/3 full). Replace the lids and wrap the whole orange in kitchen foil (shiny side in). Twist the top of the foil up so it looks like a bomb — you will need this handle to lift the oranges out of the coals.
6. Place directly on the coals of the BBQ and cook for 15-20 minutes depending on the heat of the coals. You can open up the parcels and have a peak. When the cake mix starts to flow out of the top of the orange you know you are nearly there. We like our soufflés with a little goo in the centre but feel free to cook it further if you like.’
