I was so happy to win best chocolate cake for the Coffee Morning, an event that raises funding for cancer charities here is Mallorca. That was at Mood Beach today and I am looking forward to my prize, a meal for two at Moods. So I felt it would be churlish not to share this chocolate orange cake recipe with you all!
This is a super easy chocolate orange cake recipe, its lovely and moist and will take you only minutes to prepare!
This cake is good for a coffee morning, or as an indulgent dessert with fresh whipped cream. Its a little lighter than my celebration chocolate cake recipe and so is not so good with a sugarpaste covering which is a heavy icing.
You should keep all your ingredients at room temperature, this will help stop the mixture curdling and make the eggs easier to aerate.
Dip a Pallette knife into hot water to help smooth over your ganache.
(Ps, if anyone took a photo of the cake and would like a copy for the blog!)
