    Orange Cocoa Loaf Cake

    Orange Chocolate Loaf 5

    A while ago I made a Jam Swirled French Yogurt Cake what was extremely delicious. I wanted to try making it with orange zest instead of lemon zest. However, I wanted to make it a little different, so I added cocoa powder because cocoa and orange are a match made in heaven. 

    I cannot begin to describe how fragrant my house was while the cake was baking in the oven. The lovely aroma of citrus filled the house, and little smiling faces came running into the kitchen asking if I’m baking them a orange cake. And when I said orange and chocolate, their smiles grew even wider! It’s moments like this that I treasure so dearly, and it is such a joy to be able to cook and bake for the people I love.

    If you are wondering what to do with the mountain of mandarin oranges you collected for Chinese New Year. This would be a recipe you can make. Substitute the cocoa powder for plain flour if you want to make a plain Orange French Yogurt Cake.
