Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake - Bake Along 3rd Anniversary...巧克力香橙蛋糕

Wait for me, wait for me but i was late >< Anyway, i have baked this cake specially for Bake Along #60 to celebrate the 3rd anniversary.
Happy 3rd anniversary Bake Along!!
i have baked for the 1st, 2nd and now 3rd anniversary. Can you imagine that, three years have gone by and we are still baking along. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!


Tasted the first slice and can't stop having the second and third and forth and this is what is left for the celebration :p

Let's light up the 3 candles!!
Ready .. LET'S SING!!! 
Happy Birthday to Bake Along
Happy Birthday to Bake Along
Happy Birthday to Bake Along
May there will be many many more years to come for Bake Along :D
   
Cut the cake and ENJOY!!
 This is a delicious cake. It is a simple chocolate cake with orange scented. My boys love this cake, simply it is a chocolate cake. My boys are my super fan, what ever mummy cook or bake they love :p My eldest even told me 'Mum you are the best cook in the world' i mean for him i am but am i..lol

 
Some of the basic ingredients are butter, eggs, flour..
  and i call this - the special added ingredients are orange juice, muscovado sugar (i can't get this sugar here, i replace it with brown sugar) and golden syrup. The addition of the special ingredients make the cake sooo good. The cake is moist and texture is between a cake and almost like a fudgy brownie. Do you know what i mean :D oh!! nevermind what i mean, just bake this cake yourself your will know what i mean :D

Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake (巧克力香橙蛋糕)
recipe source: Nigella Lawson's book 'KITCHEN"

Ingredients:

150g soft unsalted butter plus some for greasing
dab flavourless vegetable oil, for greasing syrup spoon
2 x 15ml golden syrup
175g dark muscovado sugar (i replace with brown sugar)
150g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
25g best quality cocoa powder, sifted
2 eggs
zest of 2 oranges and juice of 1

1 x 900g (2lb) loaf tin

To Do;
  • Preheated the oven at 170C and lined your loaf tin wiht baking parchment or a paper loaf tin liner.
  • Beat the already soft butter with syrup - if you dab your spoon with a little oil on your tablespoon measure with a sheet of kitchen roll, the syrup shouldn't stick to the spoon - and the sugar until you have a fairly smooth caffe Americano cream, though the sugar will always have a grit about it.
  • Mix the flour, bicarbonate and cocoa powder together and beat into the syrup mixture. 1 tablespoon of these dry ingredients before beating in 1 egg. Then add another couple spoonful of the dry ingredients before beating in the second egg.
  • Carried on beating in the remaining dry ingredients and then add, still beating, the orange zest and finally gradually, the juice. At the stage, the batter may suddenly dimpled as if slightly curdled. No need to panic! 
  • Pour and scrape into the prepared tin and baked for 45 minutes. (i baked mine for 55) though check 5 minutes before and be prepared to keep it in the oven 5 minutes longer if need to be. A cake tester won't come out entirely clean, as the point of this cake, light though it may be, is to have just a hint of inner gunge. Leave to cool a little in its tin on a wire rack, then turn out with care and leave on the rack to cool. 

The half loaf, i can't show you the whole loaf...you know why right :p
Once the cake is cool my boys start 'Mummy, can i have a slice, PLEASEEEE

Enjoy with a glass of cold milk or hot tea
 
I like mine with some cream cheese with milk mixture and tea in a polka dot tea cup :D
 How would you like to have your piece of chocolate orange cake?
