An excellent chocolate and orange cake made with buttermilk though you can use ordinary milk if you like.
A lovely, dense coffee style cake, it was easy to make and tasted delicious. A semi-sweet chocolate glaze with more almonds sprinkled on top tarts it up sufficiently to meet the approval of even the most discriminating koffee klatch. - 26 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
When the recipe said dry - it meant dry! I made it for an office event and everyone agreed it was awful. It was so dry it was like eating biscotti. It is a must to have coffee to dip the cake in because it's so dry. - 22 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This cake is always a great addition to our meals. It's also very easy to make some variations for your tastes - I make is a 2 layer cake and add more orange zest between the layers. - 09 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
