Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cupcake Recipe


125g softened unsalted butter or Stork SB
125g golden caster sugar
2 beaten eggs
150g sifted self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp orange juice
2 tsp orange extract
140g melted dark chocolate with orange (Lidl sell a good one)
1 bag of Terry‘s Mini Chocolate Orange Segements

Icing- Betty Crockers Chocolate Fudge and Vanilla Buttercream icing and 1 tsp orange extract

Equipment & Oven Settings

Turn your oven onto temperature 180C/ Gas mark 4


Food Mixer or Mixing Bowl

Wooden Spoon


Bun Cases

12 holed cake tin



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/ Gas 4/350°F
  • Measure all the ingredients
  • Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with cupcake cases. ( I used orange cupcake cases)
  • Start to melt the orange chocolate
  • Place the butter and caster sugar in a bowl and beat (either with a spoon or mixer)
  • Mix the baking power and flour together
  • Slowly add a little of the eggs with a desertspoon of flour/baking powder mixture
  • Slowly add the orange juice and orange extract and stir
  • Add the melted orange chocolate and mix. The mixture should be smooth with no lumps
  • Use a desertspoon and smaller spoon to spoon the mixture into each cupcake case. Try to make the mixture flat.
  • Place in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 15-20 mins.
  • The cakes should be golden and spring back when touched gently. Insert a skewer and this should come out clean.
  • Once cooked remove the cupcakes from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool
  • Once completely cool decorate with icing and chocolate orange segement

Icing & Decoration

  • Either prepare your own icing or for speed use ready made buttercream icing. I used Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge and Vanilla Butter Cream (with a few drops of orange extract to make orange flavour)
  • Use a piping bag with a large flower nozel. Fill the piping bag with the  2/3 chocolate buttercream. Flatten and then open the bag and add the 1/3 orange buttercream
  • Pipe a swirl of the mixed buttercream
  • Add a mini Terry’s Chocolate Orange segmet
