This recipe for Gullane Glögg Chocolate Orange Loaf cake has been developed by the wonderful Susanne Gilmour of Frangipane , who has been working away very busily with some Gullane Glögg and has created not one, not two but four(!) amazing cake recipes using Gullane Glögg, they are all absolutely delicious!
