Shi’s Kitchen: Orange Chocolate Chunk Loaf

Orange Chocolate Chunk Loaf
One slow Saturday morning, I decided I wanted to make a citrus chocolate something. Orange and chocolate has always been one of my favorite chocolate combinations.

The ingredients are basic, which is always the first thing about a recipe that attracts me. I don’t bake nearly enough to own all these weird baking-specific ingredients.

  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I actually skipped this because, like I said, I don’t own baking things)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • zest of 1 orange (I would probably do zest of 2 oranges next time)
  • 3/4 cup of dark chocolate chunks
