Chocolate and orange are a made-for-each-other combination, be it in a cake or an ice-cream. This is because the fruity and tangy flavour of orange complements the intense, pleasantly bitter taste of cocoa.

This amazing Eggless Chocolate and Orange Cake capitalises on the winning teamwork of chocolate and orange. A super soft and rich chocolate sponge is layered with a tangy orange cream and garnished with dark chocolate and some more yummy citrusy treats like orange segments and squash.

This combo is simply the best, and this cake is assured to please anybody. You can go ahead and confidently pick this for any occasion.
