FAQ ON CHOCOLATE ORANGE CAKE RECIPE
Can I replace the plain flour with wheat flour or wholemeal plain flour?
By all means, yes, but the cake may not turn out as moist, soft and light. If you are trying this cake for the first time, I would suggest making it with plain flour. Just by using wheat flour or wholemeal flour this cake won’t become healthy, you are using sugar, cream cheese, chocolate, and oil after all.
Can I use melted butter instead of oil?
In chocolate cake recipes oil works best as oil keeps cake moist and soft if you prefer butter instead. No harm in using it.
Can I make only one layer cake by halving the measurements you’ve given?
Of course, you can. Just prepare one layer cake and top it up with frosting or make one layer. And cut the layer across in half using knife, string or dental floss. Apply frosting between the two layers and on the top layer too.
Can I use shop-bought chocolate icing to frost the cake?
Our recipe calls for homemade chocolate and orange icing, which is entirely optional. If you are pressed for time ready-made icing will be a godsend, or simply if you don’t want to use, you can skip it totally.
How easy to make candied orange at home?
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! I have topped my cake with candied orange, which we made at home in less time. This step is optional too, but I recommend it.
