During my spare time I love to be in the kitchen making new dishes but they need to be quick and easy.

A Recipe Sooo Good

This chocolate dessert is absolutely divine. It is a rich, creamy chocolate cake which is off-set with the tang of orange to contrast with the creamy taste. The orange does a fantastic job of removing some of the sickly effect that the heavy topping can create but still compliments it wonderfully.

If you love chocolate cake then you should definitely give chocolate torte a try with this quick and easy recipe.

The basics of this cake do not elaborate on decoration nor embellishments but if you have the time, inclination and skills you definitely jazz up the cake into something even more spectacular.

If you also need some more inspiration for desserts you can find a great selection of dessert recipe books on Amazon. The prices range from basic to premium depending on what your budget is for your cooking hobby.

As you can see from the photo the chocolate torte was so tantalising that the dinner guests couldn't wait to get into it and a great big chunk was taken out before I could even get the camera out. The chocolate torte did not live long past dinner time and there was barely any left the next day!

      Orange and chocolate are great combination for cakes and cookies. However, the orange smell is much stronger and sweet. I love orange very much! Voted up

      Orange & chocolate go so well together. I can imagine the juice does indeed make for a moist cake. Looking forward to this one!
