Chocolate Orange Cake

A tender chocolate cake infused with a hint of orange citrus gives this cake much depth in flavor.  Add ganache over the top, garnish with twisted orange peel and you’ll have yourself one of the easiest cakes sure to impress your friends & family!

It’s been too long since I’ve made a chocolate cake or any chocolaty dessert for that matter.  But today I have this one for you and it is gooood!

Before I dive right into this cake I want to introduce you to someone you may be familiar with, Alice from Hip Foodie Mom.  You may remember her Blackberry Almond Cake she made for me very recently as her guest post here on URBAN BAKES.  Well, today she’s on vacation so while she’s out-and-about traveling along the West coast, I decided to make her this luscious citrus cake.

Here’s Alice and I at the closing party of the BlogHer Food event.  Sorry it’s a bit blurry.  I’m obviously inexperienced on how to take a good selfie.  Then again, this is what happens when you try to take a photo at night with that darn reverse camera on the iPhone.

Well here’s to you Alice, this simple, decadent, chocolaty cake.  Have a safe trip back home!  :)

  1. This cake is stunning! Chocolate and orange is one of my favorite combinations. A close second only to chocolate and peanut butter. :)
