Eggless Chocolate Orange Cake

After a series of breads, i wanted a change! And i already have 2 loaves looking at me, so didn’t want to bake some more and make people run away from Homemade Bread. Sometimes back, i baked this Orange cake and suddenly wanted to try something orange-y in bake. Oranges and chocolate are a great match, had some fresh oranges in hand, used them to bake this cake. The cake is a super-hit, Kuttu just came running from school and was so happy to see the cake on the table. Mild taste of orange in the cake along with chocolate is amazing, try it if you love citrus taste in your bakes.
