THB: #17 Essence of Orange – Chocolate Wafer Cake

Its our 17th cake at T H B
from Lou Seibert Pappas' 
Coffee cakes, savory, sweet and simple!

and the first time ever I chopped up an entire orange
for the cake batter!
golden raisins and orange ~ minced!
Above: it was pretty before going into the oven...
The batter rose above the rim of the pans
Above: The only decent looking cake after baking
crumb: moist, tender and just the right amount of chocolate chips!
of course I added more!


  1. Hi Emily,

    Interesting that your cake rose so much and it doesn't look as dense as mine.

    I used cooked orange instead of raw orange and mine tastes like orange slices rather than a cake.


  2. Hi Emily,
    You are up early and posting!
    Yes, this cake really rises, mine has a round crack on top, look lovely though!
    First time for me too, using a whole orange in a cake!
    This is one lovely cake!

  3. wow emily, yr cake had risen well indeed. i love the oranges in the cake.

  4. Your cake looks really tall and fluffy! I have used whole orange before, boiled till soft before mashing it...can't say I like it though, I think there's a bitterish taste.

  5. Hi Emily, it's interesting to experiment using the whole orange.First time for me too!
