Whole-Wheat Chocolate Orange Cake

Guilt free – Kid friendly – Eggless – A no fail recipe. I found this recipe tucked away in a piece of paper in my Mom’s recipe book. The original recipe had plain flour/maida which I replaced with Whole-wheat flour. The citrusy aroma that filled my kitchen was literally magical! Was baking this for my toddler’s playdate and yes they did enjoy it thoroughly đŸ™‚
