Recipe: Chocolate Loaf Cake

This is so moist on the inside, chocolatey and crusty on the outside, with soft melted chocolate on the top, sooooo scrummy! I must admit first time I made this it wasn't going to have pink chocolate on top, just white- I melted a posh gourmet bar of white chocolate I got for Christmas, but then it turned out the be pink inside to my surprise, but actually I think the pink looks quite good actually!!

Pink Chocolate Loaf (serves 8)

190g softened butter
190g sugar
4 medium eggs
150g self raising flour
90g ground almonds
½ tsp baking powder
120ml semi-skimmed milk
65g cocoa powder
60g milk chocolate, chopped up into fine pieces
50g white chocolate
Couple of drops red food colouring
1 tbsp flaked almonds

1)      Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper. Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix in all the other ingredients (except the white  chocolate, food colouring and almonds) until all well combined.
2)      Pour the mix into the lined loaf tin. Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove from the tin and allow to cool for at least an hour. Melt the white chocolate with a little food colouring in a bowl over a pan of bowling water.
3)      Pour the pink chocolate over the cooled chocolate cake, and top with the flaked almonds. Serve!
