Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and line the base of a 1.2-litre loaf tin. Put all the cake ingredients into a bowl and beat with a hand whisk or wooden spoon for 3-5 mins, until light and fluffy. Spoon the mix into the tin and level the top.

  2. Bake for 40-50 mins, until golden brown and firm to the touch. Meanwhile, heat the orange juice and sugar gently in a small pan, stirring until dissolved. When the cake is cooked, remove it from the oven and spoon over the orange mix. Leave to cool in the tin, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.

  3. Break up the chocolate and melt over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave on Medium for 1-2 mins. Drizzle over the cake and leave to set.

First made this cake earlier this year and I've made it many times since, sometimes with chocolate topping, sometimes without, depending on occasion. I can now say it always works (even if made with small helpers!), it's absolutely delicious every time :-)

So easy and so good - I doubled the recipe and cooked 2! Didn't need the full time in my fan forced oven though.

Absolutely gorgeous! I made it with gluten free flour and it was just as tasty and moist as with usual flour. Thoroughly recommend.

Very nice, all my guests loved it the first time I made it, so much so I didn't get any. I made it a second time and ate the whole thing myself, so I can only give it four stars because I felt VERY sick after, not the cakes fault just my greediness!

Wow, saw this cake in the original Good Food mag and can't believe I waited so long to make it! Made it last night and couldn't believe how easy it was - kept thinking I'd done something wrong. I've just tasted it and cannot believe how light and lovely it is. I also added chopped up chocolate to the cake and listened to others so added the rind of 2 oranges to the cake and made quite alot of syrup which I drizzled over (after I'd pierced the cake). One of the nicest cakes I've made, will definately doing this on a regular basis as it's so quick and easy
