There's something about Chocolate & Orange together; it is like a marriage made in heaven! At least, in my opinion. Some people prefer their coffee and their chocolate black, but I am always up for throwing in some fruity flavors to cut through that intense flavoring of pure cocoa bean or fresh roast coffee.

This cake has a delicious light and moist sponge even with the flavouring; I am using high grade cocoa powder intensified just a little bit with a dash of bitter coffee, which gives you the flavour of the chocolate without making the cake too dense, and the orange gives it a nice citrusy zing! The final result is one perfect chocolate-orange cake. The coffee splash is decah and it's there only to bring the earthy flavors out of the cocoa bean.

If you like chocolate and orange, this is the right choice for you, hands down!
