Chocolate loaf

Chocolate loaf




  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 150g unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk


  • 3/4 cup (135g) icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1-2 tbsp boiling water
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles


Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced) and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Place all ingredients in the bowl of your food processor or a blender and process to combine. Scrape this mixture into your prepared loaf tin and smooth over the top.

Place in the oven and cook for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Once completely cool, mix the icing sugar and cocoa together with a little boiling water until you have a nice thick consistency. Spread this over the cake and scatter over sprinkles.

Serving Suggestions


  • Fold through some chocolate chips to make this even yummier!
  • Ice with a plain chocolate icing or even a ganache if you prefer. I like it nice and plain but that might just be laziness talking!
  • Thanks to the almond meal and yoghurt, this loaf lasts well for days (wrapped tightly) and can also be sliced and frozen for lunch boxes.
