Orange and Chocolate bundt cake



O range  Bundt cake is another cake that I made recently for the New Year.  This cake is indeed delicious with the addition of orange zest and chocolate powder and I must admit that it was a good combination of flavours.  Thought you may like to try baking this for the coming Chinese New Year which falls on Monday, 23rd January this year.






Would you like to see the mould?














This is a moist cake and it's really yummy with a pot of nicely brewed  coffee or tea!
