"So quick and easy. The orange is used with the skin on. I add chocolate chips and nuts to this recipe, so have listed the variation as an option. I suppose you could use any nuts really or even some dried fruit. This is a very moist cake, so I serve it warm with cream, but it can be served cold with a citrus icing."

Very dense and moist, and the orange and chocolate flavors go so well together. I baked mine in a 8” round pan and goofed on converting oven temp. to F. so mine got a bit brown around the edges, but still tasted great. I served it plain, but I think a chocolate frosting would be good.
