Perfect with hot cup of coffee for an afternoon treat and just as nice heated with a scoop of icecream.
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Butter a bread tin and line with baking paper.
- Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or into a large bowl and mix until combined.
- In another bowl mix the milk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients while slowly adding the wet ingredients to the dry. With mixer still on low, add the coffee and the orange and stir to just combine, scraping the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then turn out on to a rack to cool.
