  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.

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

Absolutely love this cake! It's the children's favorite and just so easy to make! I made it for a weekend treat as it stays well and I take it with me as a gift when visiting people. The cake is lovely and moist but i do keep it in the loaf tin for several hours as before I have taken it out too soon and it fell apart.

Easy, tasty and winning recipe. Making my second one already. I have learnt it does require the 50 mins to bake. Enjoy

A great recipe for a very light cake - even better than Tana Ramsay's lemon drizzle cake - next time i'll try it with lemons.

Was incredibly simple. Was dubious about how simple it was due to not being an experience baker but turned out really well. i think i maybe put a little bit too much juice over the top but that just made it more refreshing. Will Definitely make again
