You can serve this chocolate cake with an orange juice reduction if you like. It is very easy to make, you only need fresh orange juice, some grated zest and some corn/potato starch or maizena (proportion: ca. 1 tbsp. for each orange). First bring juice plus zest to a boil, then mix the starch with a little water and add to the juice. Mix well and cook until you get a thicker sauce.
Serve with a hot cup of tea/coffee or with a glass of sweet wine.
