One thought on “Orange Cakes

  1. Yum, I have made this recipe twice, works well in muffin tins too (just bake for about 15mins). Modification 1: mix together some melted butter, finely grated dark chocolate, teaspoon cocoa, and four Tbls icing sugar for delicious icing. Modification 2: add orange zest and finely chopped dark chocolate to the recipe; makes lovely flavour. Thanks
