Ingredients :

125  gm  butter, chopped coarsely
250  gm  dark chocolate, chopped coarsely
100  gm  self-raising flour
150  gm  caster sugar  (used 100 gm)

2  tbsp  contreu liqueur  (optional) (used orange flavour, 1 tsp)

Chocolate Orange Ganache :

Zest from one orange
160  ml  Dairy Whipping Cream (I used one small packed 200 ml, after boiling then measure)

Directions :

1.  Preheat oven to 180'C.  Grease 20cm (8 inches) round/square cake pan; line base with baking paper.  Set aside.

2.  Stir butter and chocolate in medium saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth.  Transfer mixture to a large bowl.  Cool 10 minutes.

3.  Add sifted flour, sugar, eggs, zest, juice and Liqueur to chocolate mixture; beat at low speed with electric mixer until ingredients are combined.  Increased speed to medium; beat about 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth.

4.  Pour mixture into prepared pan; bake for about 55-60 minutes until cooked through.  Stand cake in pan 5 minutes; turn, top-side up, onto wire rack to cool completely.

5.  Meanwhile, make chocolate orange ganache.  Spread cake with 2-3 layers of ganache.

Chocolate Orange Ganache :    Combine chocolate and zest in medium bowl.  Bring cream to the boil in small saucepan at medium heat.  Add hot cream to chocolate mixture; let stand for 5 minutes then stir until smooth.  Allow to stand 15 minutes or until ganache is spreadable...
