Orange Chocolate Cake


by: Anncoo

Looking at this cake you might think this is a chocolate cake. No,this is not a fully chocolate cake. Can you see there is some marble effect on the dark cake? Just because I overbaked the cake for slightly more than 5 minutes, the cake got almost burnt and this is the result. Luckily the cake is still soft and tastes good with the sweet aroma and citrus flavour. I'm also not very disappointed because the chocolate swirl inside the cake looks very pretty. I definitely will bake this cake again with the correct timing next time.
