Chocolate and orange fudge cake



For the cake:-

  1. Butter – 125 grams
  2. Dark chocolate – 250 grams ( I used Lindt 60%)
  3. Self raising flour – 1 cup
  4. Caster sugar – 3/4 cup
  5. Eggs – 3 numbers, medium
  6. Orange juice – 1/2 cup
  7. Zest of 2 medium oranges

For the frosting:-

  1. Cream – 160 ml.
  2. Dark chocolate – 200 grams
  3. Orange zest – 1 tbsp.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Prepare an 9×9″ square cake tin & keep it aside.
  3. Sift the self raising flour and keep it aside.
  4. Melt together the dark chocolate and butter. Allow the mixture to cool down for 10 minutes.
  5. Beat the eggs with the caster sugar till pale and creamy. Add the cooled butter-chocolate mixture & beat again.
  6. Fold in the sifted flour alternated with the orange juice. Fold in the orange zest.
  7. The final batter will be somewhat watery. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin.
  8. Bake the cake at 180C for 45 minutes or till a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool down completely before you do the frosting.
  9. For the frosting, place the dark chocolate in a medium heat proof bowl. Scald the cream & pour it over the dark chocolate. Stand for 5 minutes & mix well till smooth. Add the orange zest. Let the ganache cool down to room temperature. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  10. Spread the ganache over the cooled cake.
