It is difficult to explain why, but these two ingredients together make sparks. That's why we wanted to prepare a very soft orange and chocolate cake, excellent for breakfast, as a snack but also to be served at the end of a meal.

The dark dough, enriched with cocoa , remains soft and moist at the right point, despite the fact that it is a cake without butter or milk. In fact, the eggs and the few other ingredients required by the recipe will be enough to obtain an amazing dessert. As for the oranges instead, choose organic ones as we are going to use the peel.
