Orange chocolate chiffon cake ~ 鮮橙巧克力戚风蛋糕


This soft and moist chiffon cake has a combination of orange and chocolate flavour and the texture is light and cottony.  To give it a facelift, I dusted it with chocolate powder over a template.  Fresh orange juice and zest do pair very well with the chocolate and they complement each other. Great to pair with a cup of perfectly brewed tea!
