Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake

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!
