Syrupy Jaffa Cake

This really yummy cake recipe comes from Michelle Trute's Cooking with Conscience vol 2 cookbook. Serves 12

125g reduced fat margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup water
2 Tbls cocoa powder
zest of 2 oranges
juice of 2 oranges
1/3 cup icing sugar
  1. Cream margarine, add the next five ingredients. Beat for 5mins and fold through the zest of 1 orange.
  2. Line a baking tin with paper, bake at 180c for 35-40mins
  3. In a saucepan combine juice with remaining zest and icing sugar over a low heat until sugar dissolves.
  4. When cake is cooked pierce the top with a skewer and slowly drizzle warm syrup over the cake.
  5. Allow the cake to sit in the tin until cooled.
This has a really low sodium level (97mg per serve) but could be lower if you used plain flour and sodium free baking powder.
