Chocolate Loaf


This is a smooth, tender cake that almost melts in your mouth. It is also easy to make and delicious with or without a chocolate ganache, a rum icing or a plain icing!

190 g soft butter

190 g light muscovado sugar

3 eggs

130 g flour

60 g cocoa

1 tsp baking powder

20 ml milk


Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy and add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix the dry ingredients and add, alternating with the milk. Beat until you have a smooth, beautiful batter (yes, I consider this batter beautiful).

Pour into a loaf pan and bake for 30-45 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius, until a skewer comes out clean. Let cool before smothering in a dark chocolate ganache or any icing of your choice…
