65 g self-raising flour, sifted

Recipe by Anna Jones
1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6. Whisk the egg and sugar with an electric hand whisk until thick and creamy, then stir in the flour.
2. Grease a 12-hole jam tart tin and put 1 tablespoon of mixture in each hole. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, until golden brown, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
3. Once cool, cut the cakes in half horizontally, so you have 2 thin cakes.
4. Gently heat the marmalade in a saucepan for a few minutes, until it has thickened but is still spreadable. Sift to remove any peel, if you want a smooth centre. Allow to cool, then spoon a dollop of marmalade onto the centre of each cake.
5. Melt the chocolate with the orange zest, oil (if you like) and water in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water, stirring well. Cool until the chocolate starts to thicken, and spoon over the marmalade. Leave to set.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
