An easy , delicious and super moist Chocolate Loaf Cake, with chunks of choc and a smooth topping

Ingredients

  • CAKE
  • 150 g Butter room temperature
  • 175 g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 3 medium Eggs
  • 175 g Self raising Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder not drinking chocolate
  • 1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon boiling water
  • 60 ml vegetable oil
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate chopped roughly into chunks (real chocolate)
  • TOPPING
  • 60 ml Single Cream
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate real
  • 1 table spoon Cold Milk

Instructions

  • Pre-Heat the oven to Gas 4 / 160C fan (180C non fan) / 350F
  • Grease and line a 2 llb / 900g loaf tin - I use those loaf liners they are fantastic
  • Cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I use my trusty stand mixer
  • Next add one egg at a time beating well, don't worry if it curdles a little just keep mixing and add a tablespoon of the flour.
  • Next sift the self raising flour and cocoa powder and add to the mix, stirring with a spoon or spatular
  • In a cup add your coffee and boiling water and stir - add this to your batter mix followed by your oil and mix well
  • Finally add your chocolate chunks - stir well
  • Pop mix into tin, smooth top and bake on the middle shelf for approx. 55-60 Minutes - watch the top make sure it doesn't burn
  • Test with a skewer - if it comes out clean it's baked
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack!
  • Next Make your topping
  • In a small pan add your cream and chocolate, over a gentile heat stir until melted
  • Remove from the heat and add a splash of cold milk
  • Leave aside to cool
  • When both your cake and your topping are COLD, spoon your chocolate topping mix on top of the cake and make sure the top is covered, it doesn't matter if it trickles down the side
  • Leave to set for an hour and slice and enjoy!!
