I looked at my sad, neglected cookery books this weekend:

Not that there is anything wrong with Betty Crocker! I like a chocolate swirl cake as much as anyone. But I had real ingredients on hand, and several hours to spare.
And so I favoured Nigella with my ingredients. Lemon Syrup loaf cake and Chocolate orange loaf cake ensued. It is hard to get a pic, but here they are in the oven, to show I really made them!
And then I took them out, and poured syrup over the lemon one.
Which on the plate looked like this.
And were considered scrummy
Honestly, you wait ages for a home-made cake, and then two come along at once...
