Chocolate Orange Cake

I baked this simple chocolate orange cake last weekend to celebrate my son's birthday, this cake goes for really very simple process and i enjoyed making them, i love orange flavours in chocolate cake and this time i prepared out this cake with chocolate, orange juice along with orange peels..needless to say how they tasted..we loved much, its a delicious, quite a spongy cake with orange flavour..A fabulous treat to chocolate lovers and i love baking and enjoying this cake with hot coffee for my sunday evening snacks, this cake stays prefect for more than three days in room temperature..Sending to Shabitha's Virtual Party-Chocolaty Dreams..

  22. This cake looks great. I am surprised combining milk with orange juice does not make it curdle. I guess the chocolate and other things being pre-mixed must prevent that. Thanks for the recipe. I really want to try such an orangy dessert now. Best wishes to your son!
