I cannot remember how i actually ended up making this cake but i know something to do with
getting rid of some choc chips which i bought long time ago. I came across this in the internet
and thinking i could just make this, not too many ingredients needed and simple steps. I was
actually quite impressed with the end results..simple yet moist, full of chocolate flavour , it's not
light nor dense..maybe in between , just nice. The original recipe comes with a simple decoration,
some choc drizzling over the cake to look more attractive but i just skipped that.
Ingredients ( from this website )
175gm softened butter,plus extra for greasing
175gm golden caster sugar ( i used normal caster sugar)
140gm self raising flour
85gm ground almonds
1/2 tsp baking powder
4tbsp cocoa powder
50gm plain choc chips or chunks
few extra chunks, white,plain and milk choc, for decorating
1.Heat oven to 160C.Grease and line a 2lb/900gm loaf tin with parchment paper.( i used a 9"x5" loaf tin)
2.Beat the butter and sugar with electric whisk until light and fluffy.
3.Beat in the eggs,flour, almonds, baking powder, milk and coca powder until smooth.
4.Stir in the choc chips and then scrape into the baking tin.
5.Bake for 45-50mins until golden, risen and skewer comes out clean in the centre of the cake.
6.Cool in the tin,then lift out onto a wire rack over some kitchen paper. Melt the extra choc chunks separately over barely simmering water or in bowls in microwave, then use a spoon to drizzle each in turn over the cake. Leave to set before slicing.
