Double chocolate loaf cake
If you are in the mood for some chocolate, look no further. This double chocolate loaf is sinfully delicious.

175g softened butter, plus extra for greasing

175g golden caster sugar

3 eggs

140g self-raising flour

85g ground almonds

½ tsp baking powder

100ml milk

4 tbsp cocoa powder

50g plain chocolate chips or chunks

Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas mark 3.

Grease and line a 900g loaf tin with a long strip of baking parchment. In a bowl, (using an electric whisk if possible) beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

If you do not have an electric mixer, beat by hand.

Beat in the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder, milk and cocoa until smooth.

Stir in the chocolate chips, then scrape into the tin.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden, risen and a skewer poked in the centre comes out clean.

Cool in the tin, then lift out onto a wire rack over some kitchen paper.

Melt the extra chocolate chunks separately in bowls in the microwave, then use a spoon to drizzle each in turn over the cake.

Leave to set before slicing.
