• Orange Dark Chocolate Cake
Orange and dark chocolate is a match made in heaven. There has never been a more accurate match of flavours that go together. This cake is not too sweet, but it is sweet enough.

A slice of this divine cake would pair well with a tall and wide cup of mocha, because a chocolate cake pairs well with coffee that has chocolate in it. It has no choice. That they both have chocolate in them makes them food cousins.
