Quadruple chocolate loaf cake. The perfect example to illustrate my current obsession with not only chocolate, but syrup cakes (see lemon, orange poppy) and loaf cakes (see blueberry, banana chocolate chip).
One: cocoa powdered batter.
Two: chocolate chips in batter.
Three: chocolate syrup drizzle.
Four: chocolate shard decoration.
I want to blame and thank Jennifer of Milk and Honey at the same time for bringing this cake to my attention 🙂
Warm or cold, don’t forget the cold glass of milk to accompany this cake.
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup dark chocolate chips
For the Syrup:
Chocolate flakes to decorate
As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, poke holes all over the top with a skewer and pour the hot syrup all over it.
