    i love all the recipes – can read all, but hardly ever takes the trouble to bake any of these cakes or puddings!

      Oh but this recipe is soooooooooooooooooooooooo easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, it does take a little bit of time, but you can even make it the night before and keep it in fridge. This is also how I make ‘risotto’ – in the oven.

      This cacao orange taste is just sooo yum and it makes quite a bit so you don’t have to ‘overload’ your guests, just spoon it prettily in a glass and decorate it. I’m a sweet tooth and really looove experimenting with flavours … muffins are a big favourite, cause when I bake it, I taste it, take pictures and then load it onto a tray / container and give it away to the newspaper guy or someone else on the street. Or even to the reception girls at my gym.
