Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   24 approx
Preptime   1 hour

225g Selfraising Flour (sifted)
225g Butter (at room temperature)
225g Sugar
4 eggs (at room temperature)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1pkt Orange Jelly powder
250ml boiling water
200ml orange juice
orange zest
2 bars of dark melting chocolate

Beat the 225gr butter with 225g sugar, gradually add 4 beaten eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Add 225g of sifted flour and mix again. Preheat oven at 180 and pour mixture in a muffin tin about 1 teaspoon of mixture per round. Bake for 15 mins, cool completely.
Dissolve 1 pkt of orange jelly powder in 250ml boiling water. For extra orange flavour i added 200ml of orange juice instead of water. Add the orange zest for extra flavour. Pour into a baking tray to get a thin layer of jelly. Cool until solid in the fridge. With a round shape cut the jelly in smaller circles then sponge and place on top.
Dissolve 2 cooking chocolate bars over a bain marie. Cool down as much as possible and pour over the jelly and sponge with a spoon. I let them cool completely in the fridge. You can serve as soon as the chocolate solidifies.
Serving Suggestions
They are best served with tea or as an afternoon 'pick me up'
