Nigella Lawson Pantry-Shelf Chocolate-Orange Cake

Nigella Lawson  Pantry-Shelf Chocolate-Orange Cake created by flower7

If you'll read my personal page you'll know exactly where this recipe is coming from. This is a simple, unadorned cake with a dense texture (almost brownie-like). The orange twist is a nice surprise. One day I found myself spreading soft cream cheese over a slice and it was quite delicious! Enjoy with coffee or whatever is your poison.

    This is a very moist and sticky cake. It also tastes fabulous. Unfortunately, mine looked like an asteroid hit it - it rose up really high on the edges and sunk in the center. I don't know if it was because I used homemade self-rising flour or if there was another issue. I did use the microwave to melt the butter & chocolate but I don't think that would explain the problem. Even if it doesn't look very good, the taste makes up for it. I will be trying this one again to see if I can get it to look better. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I just love the texture of this cake and have made it quite a few times now. Great with coffee, and super tasty because it has the added orange marmalade. I'm a sucker for marmalade ;) The ingredients are nearly always in my pantry so it's never anything that I have to leave the house to fetch. I will be trying it with some cream cheese this next time though..Thanks for posting this one Harley!
