In researching recipes for ZWT #6's trip to Scandinavia I found this delicious sounding bundt cake.

The combination of orange and chocolate in this marble type cake is what caught my attention - just love those flavors together. Suggest you use butter and cream with sugar (adding sugar gradually to the butter) until like whipped cream. Other than the above it is a delightful pound cake.
