  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 Orange rind
  • 1 Lemon rind
  • 2 Cups Fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla essence
  • 1 ½ Cups Sugar
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 150 Grams White and dark chocolate
  • 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Rum Essence
  • 1 Cup Melted butter
  • 6 Oranges or fresh orange juice
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    So we are going to grate the lemon and orange rind to make about 2-3 tablespoons of lemon rind. Don't throw away anything we are going to juice them in the next step.

    Step 2

    Juice 5 or 6 oranges and the one lemon the old fashion way. How I wish I had the electric juicer right now. Lol

    Step 3

    In your bowl or electric mixer add 5 eggs and the lemon and orange rind.

    Step 4

    As much vanilla as you like. We used 3 tablespoons here.

    Step 5

    1.5 cups of sugar. More or less is up to you. 1.5 for our taste.

    Step 6

    1 cup of melted butter.

    Step 7

    While your mixing add in your orange juice.

    Step 8

    If you don't have real oranges you can use premixed orange juice or even mix. Any flavour juice you like is also fine. But please no berry flavours. It won't work when we add the colour later.

    Step 9

    Now start to add your flour while it's mixing.

    Step 10

    Someone forgot to add in the baking powder earlier. So we had to stop the machine to add 3 teaspoons of baking powder.

    Step 11

    Now the fun part. You will need 4 bowls. One for each colour. Seperate the cake mixture into the 4 bowls. Equal amounts in 3 and leave extra in the 4th bowl. We left more of the original color.

    Step 12

    Add a few drops of red food coloring into your first bowl and mix with a spoon. More coloring, more intense colour.

    Step 13

    In a second bowl add the green. Food coloring is not so good for health so go easy on the frequency of use. Once in a while is ok.

    Step 14

    Stir it all in or if you like this type of strong and light texture you can leave it like this. ;) You're only limited by your imagination.

    Step 15

    And orange or any other colour you like. Stir with the spoon.

    Step 16

    Using a knife chop some of your favourite white and dark chocolate.

    Step 17

    In your cake Tin start with the white colour. Remember the first layer you put down will be the one you have more mixture of. So if first layer green make sure it's more quantity than other 3

    Step 18

    So the first layer is about 2 cm but it's all up to your imagination. And don't forget to add your favourite chocolate chips in between each layer. :)

    Step 19

    Add the next colour of choice to your baking tray. Add a few white chocolate chips.

    Step 20

    More white. It doesn't have to be perfectly layered unless you want it to. Just be careful of your colored cake mix quantity. Add some dark chocolate chips

    Step 21

    Add the next color. Add more chocolate chips.

    Step 22

    More white. More chocolate

    Step 23

    Add the next color, add more chocolate chips.

    Step 24

    And finish it off with the same colour as your first layer.and if you have extra chocolate chips. Sprinkle all over the top.

    Step 25

    It should look like this. Bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes on 180 degrees. After 45 minutes you can check by sticking a wooden skewer to see if the dough is dry.

    Step 26

    When I took it out of the oven I was totally shocked. No colour; no red, no orange, no green. Brought tears to my eyes. And when I cut in to it.....

    Step 27

    Rainbows, rainbows, rainbows everywhere. :) so there we have another colorful dessert to turn dull to exciting for your next coffee gathering.
