Chocolate Orange Cake

Chocolate Orange Cake

While chocolates by themselves made into dessert, they are delicious and fudgy. But a flavour combination is what makes the dish successful.

There are many successful flavour combinations available and chocolate orange is one amazing combination.

Both have got it’s own awesome flavour, depth and complexity and individual tastes. And you can make a fudgy chewy chocolate brownie or cake. And zest the oranges, juice them and make a wonderful orange pound or chiffon cake.

Or, be the best and make this super cool chocolate orange cake that is super moist, fluffy and spongy, soft. Well suited for afternoon tea or, well yes, for always.
