To speed up the process use boiling water from a kettle rather bringing to the boil over a hob. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the top of the water
- When the butter has melted stir in the sugar a bit at a time. At this point a small amount of orange juice can be added to give a more spongy texture when baked.
- When the sugar is mixed well in, remove the bowl from the water and add the flour, chocolate chips and the cocoa.
- Mix well until the mixture resembles a smooth sticky ‘dough’, leaving the side of the bowl clean from the mixture.
- Press this mixture into a Swiss Roll tin, which has been lined with grease proof paper.
