Orange Buttermilk Picnic Cake with Chocolate Chips

Summer is here and although I haven't posted in quite a while, I HAVE been baking. End of the year school stuff is so time-consuming! I baked lots of birthday cakes in May and June but never got the chance to photograph.
So now there are no excuses- rev up the A/C (hot, hot hot here!) , bake and pull out the tripod and camera.

This cake was very easy to throw together and really is perfect for a picnic or just an afternoon on the porch with a cup of iced coffee. I decided, since I have no picnics planned for the near future, that I would make this recipe in a mini bundt cake pan. Personal size; just right for a quick sweet tooth craving.

I love orange liqueur - it gives the cake that extra punch! Chocolate and orange together- well that is just a match made for perfection. Can't go wrong with orange and chocolate-- like this....

                            Had some extra batter , so I filled three small paper cake pans.

 Soaked with a  syrup made of o.j., sugar and Grand Marnier, then dusted with powdered sugar...

you can't go wrong!

  1. Oh I just love your mini bundts! So cute! I'm not a fan of orange and chocolate together, but I did love this cake!

  2. Me too-- these are so adorable!! What a great idea, as they look much prettier than the simple single-layer cake, which was underwhelming in its appearance. Yes, I imagine this would be a nice summer cake for the Israel heat! :)

  3. Love love love your mini-cakes!

  4. Your tiny cakes are awesome!


Thanks for reading! I'd love to hear from you!
