Decadent Chocolate Orange Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
My husband wanted an orange cake for his birthday and this was one of the few I could find that was not a bundt cake. It was fantastic; it looked good and it tasted wonderful--restaurant quality in appearance, texture, and taste. Next time, I think I'd double the filling. To optimize the appearance of the cake, it's a good idea to trim around the edges to make sure the layers are even--this makes the ganache looks its best. Strong orange and chocolate flavors for anyone out there who really likes that combo! Thanks for an outstanding recipe!

I made this for my husband's surprise birthday party. Either people loved it or hated it. Everyone LOVED the frosting. Even my hubby, the orange lover wasn't over the moon about it as he didn't like the minced orange rind in it. I will keep the recipe for the frosting. Thank you!

I personally did not care for this recipe thought because it was homemade I would get past all the orange pieces ...wrong! the combination of the orange peel and the marmalde was just to way to much. That was all I could taste. Now ever one else seemed to like it I made it for Thanksgiving however I won't be making again.

I made this cake for my husband's birthday and it was a hit. The ganache is so creamy and the cake so soft and fluffy with just the right amount of orange flavour. I will definitely be making this again. Not least of all because it is so easy. I had never baked a cake before in my life but it came out perfectly:)

GREAT! If you like chocolate and orange you have to try this cake! This cake is so good and it is not hard to make but looks very professional. The only thing I did differently is I used the remaining ganache that was to be pored over the final layer as a fluffy icing. I chilled it and then whipped it until light in color and fluffy. Then I just iced the cake as you normally would. I do recommend bringing this cake to room temperature before serving. It was a huge hit and I will defiantly make it again. I give it five starts! ( I used Large eggs)
