The Sunday Post: Afternoon… Sorted

 Last week I was scrolling through the pages of The Londoner on my lunch break – as you do – when I came across the Chocablock recipe. I’d never baked a chocolate loaf before. I didn’t even own a baking tin. But I knew this had to go down and might just make our new house feel like a home… fresh baking smells and all’a that jazz. It’s a simple throw everything in a bowl kind of recipe and my god does it taste good. So good in fact that I need to bake another one today as we finished devouring it to the last crumb on Friday. THERE IS NOW A CAKE VOID IN MY LIFE PEOPLE!

Anyway, I thought I’d pop this up as my Sunday Post this week in case any of you had a free afternoon. I highly recommend you check out Rosie’s post on it – she’s far funnier than I am – and give it a whirl.


The Ingredients…

180g butter

180g caster sugar 

3 eggs, beaten 

125g self-raising flour 

100g ground almonds 

Β½ tsp baking powder 

100ml milk 

4 tbsp cocoa powder 

200g milk chocolate chunks 

200g white chocolate chunks 

2lb loaf tin
