Orange Chocolate Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

orange chocolate bundt cakeI’m so exited to be back to this group, this is a theme the I really love because my family enjoy so much when I made bundt cakes, the at least once a month I made one.
And this month of course we needed to create a bundt full of chocolate and love, well let me tell you a little secret, I prefer chocolate chunks or chips in the cake than the hold chocolate cake.
We think is more fun that way, and this is my inspiration for this bundt, the perfect combination of orange and chocolate, little pieces of chocolate the melts in the citrus delicious flavor of the orange, so good with my coffee right now.
Ok sorry about that, I needed to take a bite out of my cake, so good, that am sure you are going to be all over this bundt after you make it.
And of course, the other delicious, bundts the my friends made to inspired you.
Put on your apron and start mixing, the kitchen is waiting for you.
