Chocolate Loaf


P1040943So my dad is a huge chocolate lover and he practically begged me to bake him this. As a kind daughter I agreed and did so. The recipe was in a magazine he was reading and he pretty much stuffed it in my face. This is actually my first time using a loaf tin for a cake, not incredibly different just a different shaped tin but I like to mix things up a bit.

Ingredients

200g salted butter, soft

200g caster sugar

4 eggs

160g self-raising flour

40g cocoa powder

100g dark chocolate

P1040925So into a large bowl you whisk up the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add your eggs, one at a time, beating well each time. Finally, add the cocoa and flour and fold it into the mixture gently. It should look like this (picture above).

Then place in a pre-heated oven at 160C/140C fan/ Gas mark 2 for 40-60 minutes until its cooked right through the middle. Also line your loaf tin with either paper loaf liner or just baking paper like I did.
