Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake

When I found out one of my colleagues at work had a birthday coming up, obviously a cake was required! But with limited time, I also needed something quick and easy so I turned to this recipe by Nigella which always reliably turns out a great cake. All the orange in it makes it really aromatic too.

But I can’t make a cake for the office and let Mark go without. So I baked two. Imagine the scene – a huge vat of chocolate orange cake mixture with its scent wafting through the house.

The cake went down a storm at work. And at home, we’re enjoying it very much as well.
