Clementine Chocolate Bread

Like banana bread, but without the bananas; i.e. it's actually cake not bread.

I've been making this for a few years now, normally with orange, but as we've got clementines in at the moment it makes sense to use them. It would work equally well with satsumas & mandarins.

  • 75-150g Dark Chocolate
  • Zest of 2 Clementines
  • 410g Self Raising Flour
  • 300g Castor Sugar
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 300ml Clementine Juice
  • 150ml Sunflower Oil

Chop the chocolate into chunks and zest or grate the clementines.

Combine the other ingredients and get someone else to mix vigorously whilst you watch/take photos.

Add the other ingredients to the mixture and fold in, reserving some of the chocolate for the top just before cooking.

Cook in a loaf tin at 200 degrees until done (about 30 minutes in our oven). You can check it's done when a toothpick comes out clean.

    Thank you! You have some seriously good recipes on yours; will be trying Leipziger Lerchen & Nussecken shortly. I have a different Stollen recipe I've been using for a few years that I'll blog soon.
