A chocolate cake has to be really good for me to love it. I’ve never been the sort to choose Chocolate Cake on a menu over other desserts. I can vouch that this Double Chocolate Loaf Cake is top notch though. The hint of orange cuts through the dense Double chocolate. I also like that the orange flavour comes from a natural source rather than adding artificial flavourings too. Obviously,I’ve added Terry’s Chocolate Orange segments on the top but this is completely optional.
I’ll be serving this later with a huge dollop of vanilla ice-cream – I suspect the other Costellos will be getting the custard out. Whatever you enjoy it with, I highly recommend a side serving of a good strong cup of tea.
Bake of the Week
I love this time of year for getting creative both with crafts and in the kitchen. Seems like me youngest two have also got the creative bug this year too. Our dining room table is constantly covered with various creations (not to mention the never ending GCSE Art projects that hang around the house too).
My featured Bake of the Week this week is inspired by Easter creativity and comes from Foodie Quine. How cute, amazing, delightful and all the other adjectives are these Tunnocks Teacake Bunny Bums?
Many Thanks as always to all of our other entries which are equally gorgeous…
