I’m not even joking when I say this is likely to be the best ever chocolate loaf cake. It’s soft, fluffy and moist all in one with a rich chocolate orange taste. And is there anything much better than the chocolate orange combination?!

I found that loaf cakes are SO much easier to bake than the bigger cakes, and the smaller size means less waiting time too! So this is a winner in every way and you’re going to love it!


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 5 Tbs orange juice
  • 4 Tbs cocoa powder
  • 4 Tbsp coconut nectar/syrup
