In her latest instalment of the Candid Orange cooks series, Instagram plant-based food blogger Eilidh Anderson (@eat_with_els), show us another sweet treat.

Chocolate orange marble loaf


  • 280 ml almond milk
  • Zest of 2 oranges 
  • 4 tbsp orange juice
  • 150 g dairy free butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 275 g self raising flour
  • 175 g caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

For the icing:

  • juice of 1/2 an orange  
  • 1/2 a bar of dark chocolate 
  • 1/2 a bar of dairy free milk chocolate 
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  1. Zest & juice the oranges 
  2. Add the orange juice into a bowl/jug with the almond milk and set aside 
  3. In a pan melt the butter & golden syrup & leave to cool a little 
  4. In a large bowl sieve the flour, sugar & bicarbonate of soda 
  5. Add the almond milk & orange juice mixture, butter & syrup mixture and the dry ingredients together
  6. Once combined divide the mixture into 2 bowls
  7. In one mixture add the cocoa & mix 
  8. In the other add the orange zest (this mixture might need a tbsp more flour to match the thickness of the choc mixture) 
  9. In a lined baking loaf tray spoon the mixture layering it almost like a chess pattern until both mixtures are used, then gently move a knife through the mixture to create a marble effect. 
  10. Bake for 40 minutes at 180 degrees or until a knife comes out clean in the centre of the cake 
  11. Wait until the cake is completely cooled and remove from tin
  12. For the icing melt all the chocolate together in a bain-marie & add the orange juice 
  13. ENJOY
