This incredible triple chocolate orange drizzle cake was a winner in the 2020 Van Bake off. With good reason, what an amazing cake. All made in a motorhome, and ideal to enjoy with a cup of tea! The baker Carrie and her husband Glyn went on to be featured on our website, which you can read right here!
