Chocolate orange layer cake
Chocolate is great on it's own but add a touch of orange and, in my opinion you have a truly magical combination.I had a craving for a chocolate orange hit recently, so I decided to make this chocolate orange cake. For the cake base I adapted Ina Garten's delicious Beattie's Chocolate cake recipe, which is deliciously dark, rich, moist and almost sticky. I then made a tart orange curd which I spread in the middle of the cake and iced it in a dark chocolate and orange buttercream.
