Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease and flour a 900g (2 lb) loaf tin.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the sieved flour and baking powder, then stir in the chocolate pieces/chips.
Pour into greased loaf tin and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Not good. Followed this recipe to the last detail. I have a gas cooker. 45 mins on, top was slightly burnt and inside all runny . . . I have baked several recipes from this site with success, this is an epic failure. - 28 Sep 2012
What a disaster... I had similar results to Burnt on top and runny in the middle.
The ingredients are the same as the usual sponge cake recipe I would bake on 180 degrees Celsius, and did wonder; but went ahead anyway as I trusted the recipe.
I had to throw it away. - 16 Jan 2013
