Chocolate and orange are one of my top favourite flavour combinations so I love finding new ways to bake with them. This Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake is an easy to prepare chocolate sponge flavoured with orange extract, it’s baked on a low temperature for around an hour to make sure it doesn’t dry out. I also stirred some chopped up Terry’s Chocolate Orange into the sponge for extra yummyness. I’ve decorated the top with chocolate orange buttercream and slices of Terry’s Chocolate Orange of course!
To make the sponge I mixed the butter and sugar together, then whisked in orange extract, eggs and milk.
Then I added self raising flour and cocoa powder, and whisked in. I also folded in half a Terry’s Chocolate Orange that I chopped up.
I poured the mixture into my lined loaf tin and baked it for 1 hour.
I made a chocolate orange buttercream and decorated the top of the loaf cake with it.
To make the Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake extra yummy and tempting I decorated it with Terry’s Chocolate Orange pieces and some orange sprinkles!
The sponge was perfectly light and moist once sliced, and it was full of that chocolate orange flavour I love so much. If you’re a fellow chocolate orange fan you will love this Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake!
