Now that the lockdowns necessitated by the Coronavirus do not seem to be ending soon, we might as well continue baking right?
This was originally a muffin recipe I used to make for the kids’ snack boxes, that I have tried a couple of times as a loaf and added some more orange juice and zest to test the flavour. It is moist, delicious and great for a tea time snack or as dessert.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- I cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 6 tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 5 tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg, beaten well
- orange zest of one orange
- 1/4 cup natural yoghurt
The method is pretty simple. Preheat your oven to about 160 degrees Celsius, Mix wet and dry ingredients separately then combine gently, add to your greased loaf pan and bake for about an hour until a skewer comes out clean.
You can serve this as you wish…
Try it, let’s indulge together!
