How to make Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 160 degrees C (fan) or 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F (gas mark).

Step 2: Generously grease a 2lb loaf tin, then, line.

Step 3: In a bowl, add the butter and caster sugar. Mix with an electric mixer or a spoon until light and fluffy.

Step 4: Whisk in the orange extract, eggs, and milk until smooth.

Step 5: Add in the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Mix until completely incorporated.

Step 6: Then, fold in the chopped Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Step 7: In the prepared loaf tin, pour the mixture. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about an hour or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Step 8: Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

To make the buttercream:

Step 9: Combine the butter, cocoa powder, and icing sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture begins to combine.

Step 10: Then, stir in the orange extract and milk until smooth.

Step 11: Fill the piping bag with the buttercream. Pipe the loaf cake or use a spoon or spatula to spread the buttercream.

Step 12: Garnish the loaf cake with the rest of the Terry’s Chocolate Orange pieces and some sprinkles, if desired.

Step 13: Serve or store in a cool place in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
