Mmmmmm More Cake!

As before, my excuse is............ I won the loaf pan liners and now I need to use them!

This one is from The WI cook book....Best Kept Secrets of the W.I. Cakes and Biscuits

Chocolate Brownie Loaf Cake

150g butter
50g plain chocolate
200g brown sugar
2 eggs
vanilla essence
50g plain flour + 1 tsp baking powder
150g milk chocolate chopped (optional)

Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a bowl over simmering hot water.
Put the sugar, eggs and a few drops of vanilla essence in a bowl and whisk them really well together until foamy. Fold in the flour and baking powder carefully. Then stir in the melted butter and chocolate mixture (optional stir in the chopped chocolate).
Pour mixture into lined 2lb loaf tin.
Bake at Gas 4/180C/160C fan oven for 40 - 55 minutes until the cake is firm and skewer comes out clean (cover with foil for the last 15 minutes if it starts to burn).
Remove from oven and leave in tin for 10 minutes before cooling on wire rack.

This is very delicious and is firm enough to be cut into very thin slices......but why would you!

Back Tomorrow


  1. Mmmmm - lovely. No excuse needed, I am sure! :-)

  2. Looks nice to me, but a thick slice here please. x

  3. I have whizzed over your post Sue as I no longer eat cake and that slice looks too tempting to dwell on.

  4. Now that sounds wonderful

  5. Say no more the cake sounds delicious.

  6. I’ve just copied your recipe down looks just my kind of cake. Only one problem right now, I’ve given up chocolate for Lent , but not to worry as just before Easter we are having a coffee morning at our craft club in aid of Marie Curie hospice, so along with my fruit cakes and lemon drizzle I will use your recipie for choclate loaf. Many thanks Sue for posting it

  7. Oooooh you are naughty. Here's me trying to get back on track with losing weight and now I just have to try that

  8. That sounds a good cake and better than my baking disasters yesterday (which were actually the fault of a faulty oven in one instance). It's always nice to try out a new recipe.

  9. So tempting. Mumbai guy has hit your blog. It's the third blog that I've read this morning that he's posted on.

  10. I'm going to save this one to try! Sounds good!

  11. Looks lovely! I used to bake quite a bit but there are only three of us here now and we don't eat as many sweets as we used to :(

  12. Looks wonderful! Unfortunately, I think I would be tempted to add a big dollop of whipped cream or - I've had a great idea! - coffee ice cream.

  13. Oh my and now I am craving brownies, or a piece of cake.

    God bless.
