Dark Chocolate Orange Cake
Chocolate and orange is a great flavor combination that's not as popular as it used to be. This dense and fudgy cake gives it a great comeback and makes good use of chocolate's bitter side as well as its sweetness. There's double chocolate flavor with both cocoa powder and and bittersweet chocolate, and double orange flavor with both juice and liqueur.
