“I found this posted a few places and it seemed intriguing enough to try (and I had the ingredients for it). I was very happy with the way it turned out. It's a loaf cake, not too sweet, and the hint of orange seems to intensify the chocolate. It's somewhere between a cake and a bread, and quite good, especially with a cup of coffee. As an added bonus, it's not a lot of work to make, all easily done by hand without beating or a mixer. (I did leave out the nuts because I can't have them, but I'm sure it would be just as good with them added).”
