Heat orange juice in small saucepan over medium heat just to warm. Place raisins in small bowl and pour warm orange juice over them. Let raisins marinate 8 to 10 minutes.

Gradually add granulated sugar in thin steam and beat until mixture is pale yellow and thickened. Add vanilla and melted chocolate mixture. Then, on slow speed, mix in flour, baking powder, and orange peel. Stir in raisins with any orange juice in bowl along with walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread top evenly with spatula.
