  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon coca
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 180 C degrees. Grease an 8 ½ x 4 ¼ x 2 ½-inch loaf pan (2lb loaf tin). Line the bottom with parchment paper. Grease and flour the pan. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt into one bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, 1 cup (200g) sugar, the eggs, orange zest, and vanilla. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. With a rubber spatula, fold the vegetable oil into the batter, making sure it’s all incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • STEP 2
    Meanwhile, cook the 1/5 cup (100ml) orange juice and remaining 1/3 cup (80g) sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear. Set aside.
  • STEP 3
    When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Carefully place on a baking rack over a sheet pan. While the cake is still warm, pour the orange-sugar mixture over the cake and allow it to soak in. Cool.
  • STEP 4
    For The Glaze: Combine the confectioners’ sugar and orange juice (and cocoa if required) and pour over the cake.
  • STEP 5
    OR Alternative Fudgy Glaze: In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine orange chocolate, butter and milk. Bring to the boil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat stir in orange juice thoroughly then beat in icing sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth, adjusting consistency with more milk or sugar, if necessary.
