Orange – chocolate cake



I’m quite proud on that cake. I took a rather basic cake recipe with dried figs (which I don’t  really fancy ) and adjusted it .  Quickly done but really good.

150 gr Butter at room temperature

125 gr sugar

a pinch of salt

2 eggs

75 gr walnuts roughly copped

75 gr hazelnuts roasted and roughly copped

150 gr dark chocolate chopped

1 dl buttermilk

1 organic orange peel grated

2 tbs orange juice

250 gr flour

1/2 ts baking soda

Mix the butter till soft ad the sugar  and the salt stir , ad the eggs and till fluffy and bright. Add the nuts , chocolate, the buttermilk and orange zest and juice.

The the flour and soda.

Fill into a cake form and bake for 50 minutes on 180°.


zest an orange ( cut the peel into thin slices )

In a pan cook 6 tbs orangejuicew and 4 tbs sugar till the suger is dissolved and starts to caramelize. Add the zest an let it cook for 5 minutes.

0ake holes into the cake with a chopstick or a big needle and poure the sugar mixture over the still hot cake.
