James Martin: Chef shares easy chocolate orange delight bun recipe on This Morning


James Martin, 48, regularly appears on This Morning to share his different recipes. On today’s show, the chef showed viewers how to make his easy chocolate orange delight sweet treat, which is similar to a Chelsea bun. 

He then removed the dough from the machine and put plenty of flour onto the worktop in front of him.

James went on: “If you look at it, it’s not really a pastry, it’s quite delicate.”

Presenter Holly Willoughby added that it looks a bit like pizza dough.

The chef explained that the dough needs to be rolled out to about 45cm x 30cm.

James then added the swirls of his chocolate orange bun to the bottom of the cake tin, ensuring that all of the bottom of the cake tin was covered.

The chef explained to viewers that this needed to be left for about an hour to prove even more at room temperature.

Once proved, the bun needs to be placed into a 200 degree oven for about 40 minutes and while it is still warm, top it with the glaze.

To make the glaze, James explained that he mixed orange juice and sugar together along with water.

He said: “I’m using blood orange juice because it makes it go a little pink.”

James posted the recipe onto his Instagram with the caption: “It’s easier than you think.”

One fan commented: “I might have a go at this, they look very nice.”

Another said: “Delish! Will be baking this later.”

“Looks amazing and most of all, so yummy,” a third wrote.
