Chocolate orange cake

I asked my son what kind of cake he’d like and he replied “chocolate and orange” so using Dan Lepard’s brown sugar chocolate cake recipe from Short and Sweet, which is mostly like this one from the Guardian, plus the zest of an orange in the mixture, and a quick topping using the juice of half the orange plus some icing sugar and butter and a quick waft of cocoa powder, here’s a giant cupcake. Using a 20cm cake tin liner in a tin which is a bit bigger means the liner gets nice and full, the recipe gets room to spread and the result is lighter than making it in a loaf tin.
