Orange & Choc Dessert with Cranberry Icing

We all know that orange and chocolate are favour buddies, but I recently discovered that cranberry fits pretty well in the mix too! Made these mini cakes with orange zest and juice, chocolate chips, and on top added some cranberry icing. The result was just divine! 🙂                                        Orange & Choc Cake with Cranberry IcingYou can easily use this batter mix to make muffins or a larger cake too ( you’ll probably have to change the baking time if you do, especially if you wish to make a cake you might need to leave it baking for an extra 10-15 minutes or so depending on your oven ).

Let’s get dessert making!
