Making cake into a loaf is a form of mind trickery for me.
I have always associated a ‘loaf’ as somewhat healthy, not awesomely rich and sweet. Like banana or zucchini bread.
So after I had made this cake, even knowing every wonderful ingredient I had put into it, I still saw that same only loaf in my mind. I treated it like it was a run-of-the-mill bread.
This is not a run-of-the-mill loaf. It is a full on CAKE. A wonderful and delicious chocolate loaf cake.
Which I am sure the average person is able to determine in a matter of seconds as is not weird like me.
Recipe slightly adapted from Nigella. (hers is quadruple chocolate, so worth checking out!)
This is a chocolate loaf cake that you should immediately serve and cover in gobs of chocolate syrup or ganache. Or a fruit spread. or ice cream. Whatever you do, just make this and let that decadent glorious chocolate richness just melt in your mouth.
You wont be sorry. ;)
