Orange Flavored Chocolate Moist Cake

I have been planning to bake a cake for my colleagues today as I couldn't bring any of Diwali cookies, not because I don't want t share with them but I had only empty containers. We had given out cookies for relatives and neighbors who came to visit us. So for my colleagues I have baked an Orange flavored Chocolate Moist Cake, this is a very moist cake and it just melts in your mouth.

I have got this recipe from sis Love2Cook's blog, actually I planned to bake moist chocolate cake but while mixing the batter I saw Oranges in my fridge I thought of adding it to my cake, Orange and chocolate is a very good combo to go together. Now let us take a look at how to bake this cake;


100 g of all purpose flour
50 g of dark cocoa powder
200 ml evaporated milk
50 ml of freshly squeezed orange juice
180 g of granulated sugar (I have used brown sugar)
1 tbsp of orange zest
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
180 g of butter
2 eggs

In a bowl sift all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder and set aside.

In another bowl, whisk butter and sugar until fluffy then add egg one by one and mix everything well. Then add vanilla extract, orange juice, evaporated milk and orange zest, mix everything thoroughly.

Finally add the dry ingredients that have been sifted little by little and mix well without any lumps. Grease a baking pan and pour the cake mixture into the pan and bake at 170 degrees for 45 minutes  (My oven calls for 150 degrees 30 minutes only).

Once baked cool the cake completely before applying any toppings to the cake. 

For Chocolate Ganache topping:

100 g of cooking chocolate
5o ml condensed milk
2 tbsp of butter

Double boil the cooking chocolate once melted add the butter for a glossy shine.
