For the filling

  • Combine the tahini and honey in a bowl, until completely combined.

  • Put it in a bowl and melt it in a bain marie. You can also melt it in the microwave by covering the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes, set at 800 watts.
  • When ready, add it to the tahini- honey mixture and mix.
  • Set the filling aside to let it cool and thicken before spreading. 

For the cake

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • In a bowl, add the sugar, oil, vinegar, brandy, salt and orange zest.
  • Whisk until all of the ingredients are completely combined and the sugar melts.
  • Combine the orange juice with the baking soda in a separate bowl carefully since it will foam and rise. Add it to the mixture and then add the water.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
  • Add it to the mixture and fold in with a spatula.
  • Finely chop the chocolate couverture and add it to the mixture.
  • Transfer to a 22-23 cm cake pan that you have brushed with oil.

  • When ready, remove from oven. Place on a wire rack and let it cool for 10 minutes in the cake pan.
  • Turn the cake out and let it cool completely on the wire rack.
  • Carefully cut the cake in to two layers with a sharp knife.
  • Spread the filling over the bottom layer and cover with the top layer.
  • Serve with melted chocolate.
