I'm always looking for sweet treats with a little kick and came up with this after experimenting with various chilli powders.
8 oz self-raising flour
1 oz cocoa powder
2 tsp ancho powder
4 oz caster sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
3 tbsp melted margarine or sunflwoer oil (oil gives a much denser cake)
150 ml orange juice
Rind of an orange
2 oz dark chocolate chips
Pre-heat the oven to 180°c. Grease a 1lb loaf tin.
Sift together the flour, cocoa and ancho powder. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, fat, orange juice and rind. Add this to the dry ingredients and lightly stir until mixed before adding the chocolate.
Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 30-40 mins.
