You can also make this recipe into muffins or cupcakes. Simply adjust the baking time accordingly.
Altered ingredient amounts. I substituted cocoa powder for approx 100g of the flour, to give it a more intense chocolate flavour. Also filled the cakes with butter icing with a dash of lemon. - 02 Oct 2010
This is a super recipe - makes quite a large quantity, but that's great as I like to freeze some for later. I also split the loaves and filled them with icing (see pumpkin and cream cheese roulade recipe). Gorgeous! - 02 Oct 2010
I just made this for a cocktail party - doubled the recipe, used mini chips and baked them in miniature loaf pans and sliced so the servings were more size-appropriate for a cocktail party. Decreased bake time to about 35 mins for mini loaves. DELICIOUS! - 06 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
