Theme of the week: Tea Cakes
I am not a fruit person, but when it comes to bakes, I love the citrusy flavors a lot. Orange is almost my favorite, almost because I love lemon too, of course chocolate dominates all flavors. So while making this orange cake I used fresh orange juice and added some chocolate chips to satisfy my chocolate cravings along with that citrus flavor. So for Day 4 it is a Orange Cake with Chocolate Chips.
The cake is made with whole wheat flour, but can be substituted with APF or one can use half and half. The wheat based cakes are comparatively dense but I know if I would make with APF no one would eat.
The cake turned out very soft and tasted divine, I drizzled some chocolate and piped out some cream before serving.
