Sweet & Simple Bakes Monthly Round-Up ~ Chocolate Orange Drizzle Loaf Cake

It happens to be our fourteenth baking challenge here at Sweet Simple Bakes. It has been yet again another great success with so many gorgeous entries. Every Chocolate Orange Drizzle Loaf Cake looks divine and I hope it becomes a popular bake in your household as much as it is mine.

We would like to thank all our S&SB bakers for your continued support each month and a very warm welcome to new bakers who have joined us this month.

*Unfortunately, I have some breaking news for you here at S&SB*.

Due to overwhelming commitments this summer, Maria has had to take a break from S&SB for a little while. I plan to manage S&SB each month and keep S&SB running as normal until Maria is hopefully able to join us here once again. I do hope you will carry on supporting S&SB because you are what makes this blog a great place to visit and enjoy a spot of home baking each month.

*If there are any late entries, I will endeavour to add you to the round-up as soon as possible*.
EDIT, we have a late entry. Maria @ The Goddess's Kitchen

Divya @ Dil Se

What a great turn out this month! It's taken me ages to visit everyone's blog and try and leave a different comment each time!

Sorry to hear about Maria - I was getting a little concerned. Looking forward to when she's back with us.

I'm sure you'll do a great job on your own though. Looking forward to tomorrow already!!

Thank you T.G. It really has been a brilliant round-up this month – let’s hope next month’s is the same :0) Yes I am sure Maria we be joining us when she feels able to once again :0)

Joanne, I left a comment on Natalia’s Gatti Fili E Farina explaining the link wasn’t working. She is having computer problems at the moment and I think has gone away on holiday now. The other links appeared to work when I tried them all but thanks for the heads up because it’s always good to know just in case I hadn’t noticed :0)

Thanks Divya and it was really lovely to have you bake with us :0)

Best wishes Rosie x

Hi Anju, I also find it exciting when the 2nd of the month comes around and up in "lights" is our S&SB round-up with everyone’s bake. I adore the little tweaks of here and there of personal touches from our bakers.

Hi everyone

Just popping in quickly to say hello! What a wonderful round-up and everyone's cakes are amazing!! I only managed to bake my cake today and I am so glad I did. It was truly amazing.

I am hoping to bake the carrot cake this weekend before my guests arrive. But I will be back in full force in September! Have a great summer and see you all soon.
