Olivia’s Chocolate Orange Snack Cake

A family favorite is chocolate oranges in Christmas stockings. I’ve tried to replicate the taste and this recipe comes the closest. Use good quality cocoa and dark chocolate to increase the richness. Bonus, the taste will be so satisfying, one piece will be enough. Maybe.

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Heat over to 350F. Mix flour, brown sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt with fork in ungreased square pan, 8 X 8 X 2 inches. Mix in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. 9 servings.

    I found this recipe in the book. Tried it twice and each time it fell in the middle. Followed recipe exactly….what am I doing wrong. I use low acid orange juice…could that be the problem? The cake is delicious….we really like it and eat all of it anyway…but would like to take it to share with others and I don’t want to take a fallen cake. Help !!!
