Chocolate Loaf Recipe

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I’m sitting in a little cottage in north Devon in my pyjamas feeling super festive and excited for tomorrow’s Christmas antics.

I thought that I would just put up a quick post this afternoon showing you the recipe for my family’s favourite chocolate loaf. I found a recipe a while back for this but there were bits and bobs that I didn’t like so I’ve adapted it to make it even more delicious.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and eat as much food as you possibly can!img_0819-editimg_0812-editimg_0822-edit


115g unsalted butter

300g caster sugar

¾ tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla essence

½ tsp baking powder

80g cocoa powder

3 eggs

160g plain flour

100g milk chocolate chips (add to taste)

100g milk chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/gas mark 4 and line a loaf tin with baking paper or paper loaf case.
  2. Soften the butter by putting it in the microwave for about 20 seconds but be careful not to melt it though.
  3. Add the butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking powder and cocoa powder to a large mixing bowl and combine until it forms a wet dough.
  4. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well each time.
  5. Slowly add half the flour, add the milk then add in the rest of the flour.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chunks and pour the batter into the loaf tin.
  7. Bake for 70 minutes, until well risen and a skewer comes out mostly clean.
  8. Let it completely cool on a cooling rack.img_0805-editimg_0830-edit
