When you have a teenage boy you often find that the fridge has been emptied, like gannets they need to eat everything in sight. Our family loves Soreen, there is a variety to suit everyone. My husband loves the original malt loaf, I like the banana loaf and my son loves all the varieties. Soreen have just introduced a new Soreen Orange loaf, containing orange pieces, tangy fruit juices and sultanas. Soreen kindly sent me some loaves to try.
The Soreen orange loaf is lovely and squidgy and a perfect snack with a little butter. Containing only 84 calories a slice, it is a guilt free snack as well. You can currently find it in Sainsbury’s at RRP £1.25. From September you will also be able to find it in Asda. It has a lovely orange taste which the family all loved. It is perfect for Breakfast, a mid-morning snack or with an afternoon cup of tea.
Eating it I had an idea to turn the Soreen orange loaf into a decadent Summer dessert. I thought that it would make the ideal base for a trifle. I mixed the Soreen orange loaf into an orange jelly made with mandarin oranges and their juice. Once this was set I topped it with a layer of cold custard and whipped double cream. Some cake sprinkles added the final touch.
It was a lovely refreshing dessert, the tang of the oranges mingled well with the sweetness of the custard and the cream. It would be easy to eat several bowlfuls of this, forgetting that it is more calorie filled than the original loaf. It is a great way to end a meal and is slightly more refreshing that a standard trifle, more suited to warmer weather. If you had a big glass bowl this would make an ideal centre piece for a party table, quickly scoped out into bowls to delight your guests. It was a big hit with my family and did not last long.
Disclosure: I was sent some orange soreen in order to do an honest review.
