Chocolate & Orange High Five Cake

A lovely moist cake thanks to the addition of Groovy Food’s wonderfully healthy High Five oil. Cut your intake of saturated fat when you do any baking by swapping some of the butter for Groovy Food’s High Five Oil. Groovy Food’s High Five Oil’s healthful properties come from rich levels of omega 3, 6 and 9 fats from the combination of Camelina sativa oil, avocado oil, virgin olive oil, oleic sunflower oil, sesame seed oil.

Rich and indulgent tasting you can eat this plain with a dollop of yogurt or crème fraiche or for something special ice it with a rich chocolate icing together with a creamy cheese filling. A really scrummy way to sneak in more healthy fats into the family’s diet.
