School has almost come to an end for the year, where has this year gone? Seems everyone can relate to this. To finish off the school year I decided to make a yummy treat for the kid’s and their school lunch boxes. But of course with healthier substitutes, no refined sugar or wheat flour in this recipe making it a great gluten-free treat. Sweetened with coconut sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice with raw cacao  gives it the orangey Jaffa flavour. Beautiful moist choc orange marble cake celebrating the last week of school sounds pretty good to me.
