Jaffa Drizzle Loaf

Jaffa Drizzle Cake

Serves 8-10

Awesome orangeness! Lovely moist and fruity cake! It will keep up to a week (although I doubt it will last that long,) and it’s also freezer friendly!


140g butter , softened

200g self-raising flour

11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

200g golden caster sugar

3 large eggs

6 tablespoons milk

finely grated zest 1 large orange


3 tablespoons orange juice

50g golden caster sugar

50g dark chocolate


How to

  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 minutes, until light and fluffy. Spoon the mix into the tin and level the top.
  2. Bake for 40-50 minutes, 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 minutes. Drizzle over the cake and leave to set.
