Dense and rich Chocolate loaf



  1. All purpose flour – 11/3 cup
  2. Unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 level tbsp.
  3. Salt – a pinch
  4. Butter – 175 grams; softened
  5. Brown sugar – 12/3 cups
  6. Egg – 2 numbers; large
  7. Vanilla essence – 1 tsp.
  8. Dark chocolate ( I used Lindt 60%) – 100 grams; melted and cooled
  9. Baking soda – 1 tsp. (level)
  10. Hot coffee – 1 cup ( 1/2 level tsp. instant coffee powder mixed with 1 cup of boiling water)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and cocoa powder.
  3. Mix together the butter and brown sugar.
  4. Add in the eggs and just mix till combined. Do not over beat the mixture as the cake will not be dense.
  5. Stir in the melted chocolate and vanilla essence. Sift in the baking soda.
  6. Fold in the sifted flour mixture alternated with the hot coffee.
  7. Pour the batter into a prepared 2 lb. loaf tin.
  8. Bake at 180C for 55 minutes. A skewer inserted into the center of the cake will not come out clean in this case.
  9. Let the cake cool completely before removing it from the pan. This cake will be crispy from outside and very soft and moist from inside.
