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
50g plain chocolate
200g brown sugar
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!
