  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and then simmer the oranges whole for 2 hours. Allow to cool.

  2. Preheat the oven to 190'C and grease and line your cake tin.

  3. Place the oranges in a food processor and mix until smooth.

  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until combined.

  5. Pour into a cake tin and cook for an hour and ten minutes  it may need a bit longer. (Note: the cake should be quite moist but pulling away from the edges of the tin and a skewer should come out fairly clean).

  6. Allow the cake to cool a little before removing from the tin to cool completely.

  7. For the ganache, Melt the chocolate and cream in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until melted, smooth and glossy. You may need to add a little more cream to get the consistency right.

  8. Allow to cool a bit and thicken, then smear over the cake (don't do this until the cake is cool) and you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
