How To Make Easy Chocolate and Orange Torte
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 take away some of the creamy taste. The orange does a fantastic job of removing some of the sickly effect that the heavy topping can create.
If you love chocolate cake then you should definitely give chocolate torte a try.

As you can see from the photo they 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!
