Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake

, , , ,

In winter we love to eat oranges. For breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice, in the afternoon just like that. And once in a while the oranges also hop into a cake, like in this one. 🙂

The moist chocolate orange cake has a decent orange flavour, but the colour is simply the best!
It is a simple sponge cake, refined with oranges and covered with chocolate.

The chocolate orange cake gets its colour not only from the oranges, but especially from some turmeric.
