Vegan Chocolate Orange Torte



200g of dark chocolate

1 orange

100g cornstarch

3 apples

225g caster sugar

100 cornstarch

icing sugar

100ml olive oil

Put the olive oil and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of water, brought to the boil and left to simmer, till the chocolate melts.

Core your apples and place whats left in a food processor with the caster sugar until its nearly fully liquified. No need to peel them.

Peel your orange and slice each wedge into four or five relatively thin slices. You’ll need quite a sharp knife for this if you’re to avoid mangling these completely. Once they’re all cut up, throw them into your chocolate/oil mixture.

Add your apple/sugar mix to the chocolate/oil/orange mix, bring them all together.

Heat the oven to 160 C, pour your mixture into a cake tin. Bake for 25 minutes or until you can put a skewer and pull it out clean.

Once it’s cooked leave it to cool in the tin before taking it out for a bit. Leave it to cool completely on a wire rack and dust with icing sugar.

Note: If you want that a bit more fruit two oranges is fine and I’ve gotten good results from a bit less (75g) cornstarch too, the less the better if you want it to turn out lighter
