Servings: 15
  • 2 Organic oranges
  • 7-10 Tbsp some + 200 g soft butter
  • 7-10 Tbsp some + 350 g flour
  • 200 g Sugar
  • 1 package Vanilla sugar
  • 3 Eggs (Gr. M)
  • 7-10 Tbsp Salt
  • 2 TEASPOONS Baking Powder
  • 150 g low-fat yoghurt
  • 250 g sweet orange marmalade
  • 75 g Dark chocolate


  1. 1

    For the dough, wash oranges hot, dry them and finely grate the peel. Squeeze 1 orange and measure 100 ml juice. Grease a box form (30 cm long; approx. 2 l capacity) and dust with flour.

  2. 2

    Preheat oven (electric cooker: 175 °C/circulating air: 150 °C/gas: see manufacturer).

  3. 3

    Cream 200 g butter, sugar, vanilla sugar and orange zest with the whisks of the mixer. Stir in the eggs one by one. Mix 350 g flour, 1 pinch of salt and baking powder and stir in alternately with yoghurt and 100 ml orange juice.

  4. 4

    Pour the dough into the tin and bake in a hot oven for 50-60 minutes. After about half the baking time, cut the surface of the cake lengthwise and make a groove with a wooden spoon. Repeat this procedure once or twice during the remaining baking time.

  5. 5

    Remove the finished cake and let it cool in the mould for about 10 minutes. Then turn out onto a cake rack and let it cool down.

  6. 6

    Spread the jam in the groove of the crust and on the cake. Chop the chocolate and melt it in a hot water bath, then pour it in strips over the cake and let it dry.
