I do subscribe few magazines and the tempting picture in it drives me insane. This cake was so tempting and it was featured in low cal section. Usually the chocolate cakes have 26 g fat per serve but this cake is only 9.3 g fat per serve. Wow what a reduction!!!
I personally have an addiction to orange flavored cookies or cakes. I have also tried these cakes using plain dark chocolate and adding fresh orange zest. The original recipe is adapted from October2007 edition of Superfoodideas It is an Australian magazine and I am a loyal subscriber of this wonderful magazine. I have been a regular reader for last 5 years and since having moved from Sydney to Beijing . My husband subscribed the magazine for me. So every month I have some new tempting recipes knocking at minds doorstep and also thanks to the creative food blogging website where there is no limit our imagination.
