COCOA LOAF


This is a simple, but satisfying loaf, eat it buttered or glorify it with fruit, whipped cream or some dessert sauce. This is my favourite to take on a picnic and sometimes I bake it in a square baking pan for easy transport. I used a medium bread pan this time.

For a Medium Bread Pan:
2/3 cup butter, soft
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

For a Full Size Bread Pan:
1 cup butter
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1-1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp pure vanilla extract

• Preheat oven to 350F.
• Line a medium bread pan with parchment paper. Leave a bit of overhang on two sides for easy removal.
• Beat the soft butter, sugar and vanilla until very fluffy
• Add eggs one at a time, keep beating.
• Place the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a medium sized mixing bowl.
• Whisk with a balloon whisk. This eliminates having to sift the dry ingredients.
• Add the flour mixture to batter, and fold in until just combined. Do not beat.
• Bake in the preheated oven until cake tester comes out clean.
• Remove from the tin, and cool on rack.

  1. Your cake looks gorgeous. So soft and light and fluffy! It brings so many memories! My mum used to make a similar cocoa cake and I loved it hot with butter (lots of butter!). I still remember when once she has made an error and produced something which was considered a failure because it was moist, sticky, bit like toffee and not floury. I begged her to repeat this error but she refused. (Maybe because of this I have been making now only flourless, sticky and moist chocolate cakes, but sometimes I miss this light and fluffy one).

  2. I suppose with four eggs this is more of a cake. I am with your mom Sissi. The crumb is very important to me.
