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!
