Orange Chocolate Cake

Written By Srimathi Mani on Monday, September 8, 2008 | 7:56 PM

Chocolate and Orange are made for each other. I love chocolate and orange and have been hooked on ever since I tasted the marmalade coated chocolate I had from Trader Joe's. Nigella Lawson's Marmalade cake has also inspired me to think and bake this fresh orange added chocolate cake. I used the zest, juice and the orange to bake this cake. The end result was something very fresh, moist and tasty cake. My entry to MM: Chocolate and fruit hosted by Meeta of What's for Lunch Honey?
