~chocolate loaf~

This is a speedy chocolate cake with cocoa and chocolate chip chunks!

It’s simple and quick to make – is there any better kind of cake?


Preparation time : 10 mins

Oven time : 60 – 65 mins

175g butter

175g sugar

3 eggs

140gย self-raising flour

85g powdered almonds

1/2 tsp baking powder

4 tbsp cocoa powder

100ml milk

50g chocolate chips

How to : Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy, add the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder, cocoa and finally the milk and beat until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into a grease proof paper lined loaf tin. Bake at 165ยฐC for 60 – 65 mins until a skewer poked in the center comes out clean. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack and leave to cool completely before decorating and slicing.

Moist and chocolaty

It also freezes really well (un-iced) which makes it an even better recipe!
