It’s Come to Make Every Moment Happy: Orange Chocolate Cake Recipe
There are some flavors that suddenly change your mood. Chocolate is one of the leaders of these flavors. The moment you eat it, it takes all your sadness, tiredness, and laziness and takes you to completely different dimensions. That is why even a part of it is enough to make people happy. As such, we rolled up our sleeves to prepare a recipe intended to make every moment happy.
First, we baked a soft, orange-scented cake blended with the delicious taste of chocolate. Then we prepared a rich chocolate filling cream and put it in between. After resting it well in the refrigerator, we made a delicious dessert that would turn stones into ready-made cakes.

How to Make Orange Chocolate Cake Recipe?
For the cake:
Take the sugar and butter in a bowl. Start whisking with the help of a mixer at medium speed until it gets a creamy consistency.
Then break the egg one by one. Continue whisking after each broken egg.
Then add milk and oil into this mixture and mix well.
Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, let it rest at room temperature for a while and warm slightly, then add to the mixture and whisk.
Sift the flour and add it to the mixture in a controlled manner. At this stage, we recommend adding flour little by little and mixing it with a spatula. In this way, you will prevent the amount of flour from coming too much or too little.
Mix all the ingredients with the help of a spatula from bottom to top and mix until there are no flour crumbs.
Add the cocoa, vanilla, orange zest and baking powder and mix well, then transfer your cake mix to a greased and floured round clamp mold.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 25 minutes. Use a toothpick to check if it’s cooked.
When cooked, take it out and let it cool at room temperature.
For the filling:
Melt the bitter chocolate benmari style.
In a bowl, whisk the butter until it gets a creamy consistency.
Add the cream into it and whisk for a few more minutes.
Then, add the melted chocolate little by little and continue the whisking process.
Finally, add the powdered sugar and cocoa and beat for a few more minutes. Wrap the filling cream you have prepared with cling film and rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.
For the merging phase:
Divide your cooked and rested cake in half with the help of a rope or knife.
Slightly moisten both parts by pouring spoon-spoonful of warm milk.
Then place the base of the cake on a medium plate.
Apply the filling cream on it.
After seating the other piece, cover the filling cream with the help of a spatula.
After decorating it with orange zest, let it rest in the fridge for about 3 hours, or for 1 night if you have time. Then serve by slicing.
