Orange Olive Oil Cake w/Chocolate orange ganache

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


An easy small cake that gets better with time. Added the zest and juice of one large orange for added flavor. Normally I dust with just powdered sugar, but made a chocolate orange ganache and drizzled then added powdered sugar. I love orange chocolate!!
