Jaffa chocolate orange tea loaf

I didn’t used to be a huge fan of chocolate orange, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve really come to love it. Isn’t it strange how that happens? 15 years ago, I would never have eaten chocolate orange, blue cheese, fennel or bakewell tart, but now these are some of my favourite flavours. Not all together, obviously!

This is a really simple recipe for a tea loaf, as it’s al mixed in one bowl together before baking. I’ve cut down the sugar amount in the sponge from the original recipe and left it out of the orange glaze entirely (as orange juice is mostly sugar anyway!).

As the name of this cake coincidentally suggests, this is great for slicing into a big chunk and eating with a cup of tea. Or coffee, which I prefer to tea (although being British I would never admit to that in public).
