  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with butter or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sift the flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar.
  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Beat in the butter, eggs, and orange zest with a hand mixer until well blended into a batter. If the batter seems a little stiff add milk, one tablespoon at a time until the batter has reached dropping consistency. Pile the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake for around 40 to 45 minutes or until the cake is well risen and golden, and a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake sit for a moment in the tin, then turn it out to cool on a wire rack. Serve as desired.
