It's been a while since we've shown you a recipe that uses one of our great loaf tins and what better way is there to make up for it than with a loaf cake? We imagine quite a lot of you are getting your summer bodies ready, so a double chocolate cake perhaps isn't the most ideal recipe but sometimes you've got to ditch the diet for a day and treat yourselves, and this cake certainly is a treat!

- 175g softened butter, plus extra for greasing
- 175g golden caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 140g self-raising flour
- 85g ground almonds
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 100ml milk
- 4 tbsp cocoa powder
- 50g plain chocolate chips or chunks
- a few extra chunks of white, plain and milk chocolate, for decorating
Step 1 - Line your tin with baking parchment and heat your oven to the correct temperature: 160C/140C Fan/Gas Mark 3.
Step 2 - Beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
Step 3 - Beat in the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder, milk and cocoa, until smooth.
Step 4 - Stir in the chocolate chips, then scrape into the tin.
Step 5 - Bake for 45 - 50 mins until golden, risen and the skewer poked in the centre comes out clean.
Step 6 - Cool in the tin, then lift out onto a wire rack over some kitchen paper.
Step 8 - Melt the extra chocolate chunks separately in pans over barely simmering water, or in bowls in the microwave, then use a spoon to drizzle each in turn over the cake.
Step 9 - Leave to set before slicing.
