Recipe: Lindor Orange Truffle Triple Chocolate Loaf


Some of my favourite cakes to make are loaf cakes. Relatively quick to make and usually take a little while in the oven which is a perfect opportunity to get the washing up done and sit back with a cup of tea. They don't require much attention!

If we're talking loaf cakes, then the absolute ultimate loaf cake would of course be a chocolate loaf cake packed full of your favourite chocolate. The world is your oyster-loaf...pick whatever you fancy.

Each time Lindt release a new flavour of their Lindor Truffles, I think its my favourite. Except this time, I really do think their orange flavour* will have a very long reign, just like the Queen!

For this loaf I used a big bar of Dairy Milk Caramel...some would argue its not proper baking chocolate, but they haven't lived. You could always substitute this for proper chocolate because there's a whole box of Lindor Truffles too, seems a little extravagant. But again, you haven't lived until you try it.

So because orange really is the new black, I present to you - YOUR triple chocolate loaf, because it certainly isn't Terry's, silly!

Lindor Orange Truffle Triple Chocolate Loaf
(Recipe adapted from The Londoner, makes a 2lb loaf)

180g unsalted butter, room temperature
180g caster sugar
3 eggs, beaten
125g self raising flour
100g ground almonds
1/2 tsp baking powder
100ml whole milk
4tbsp cocoa powder
200g milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • Heat the oven to 160 degrees and line and grease a 2lb loaf tin.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Gradually mix in the eggs, a little at a time. Gently mix in the flour, almonds and baking powder. Add the milk and milk to a smooth consistency. 
  • Add the chocolate chunks and whole truffles, stirring as little as possible. 
  • Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 50-60 minutes, a skewer inserted should come out clean of better (but maybe not chocolate!)

The caramel sunk to the bottom and the rest of the slice fell apart...all the more reason to serve warmed with ice cream. But if you like your slices a little more tidy then perhaps use plain chocolate.

* Sally c/o Lindt kindly sent me a pack over to give their new flavour a try. My passion for Lindor truffles is honest and my own.

  1. This sounds sooo good! I do love me chocolate orange, probably one of my favourite combinations so in truffle form would be totally ideal! x

  3. Chocolate orange is MY FLAVOUR. I love it. Loaves aren't really cake and they don't feel so fussy and cakey when you eat them so you eat ALL OF THEM because they're not cake. That's how I live.
