Chocolate Walnut Loaf

Soft & moist loaf cake :) taste even better after a day, like eating a brownie cake. Original recipe only ask for plain flour, but I added some cocoa powder for a chocolaty taste.

  • 100gm brown sugar
  • 110gm plain flour (i reduce to 100gm and add 10gm of cocoa powder)
  • 4 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 110gm butter, soften
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 30gm walnuts, chopped finely
  • 3 tbsp choco chips
  1. Grease and line a loaf tin 22x12cm. (alternative use a disposable loaf pan which also fits well)
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and corn flour 3 times.(this is to ensure the loaf is really soft)
  3. With a electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs gradually and beat well. Beat in vanilla essence.
  4. Gently fold in the flour into the butter mixture, in 3 batches, do not overmix.
  5. Fold in raisins, walnuts and choco chips until just blended. (coat with some of the flour mixture to prevent sinking)
  6. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 30-35mins at preheated oven 180 deg cel. Cool in the tin for 5 mins before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
