This is a simple cake with many uses. It is a perfect tea time treat and also good for a sweet quick dunk in morning coffee. If it lasts for more than 3 days, you can recycle it as a pudding by soaking it in with a red fruit compote and topping it with whipped cream. Use the yoghurt container as a measuring unit.
This basic cake mixture lends itself well to different flavours. You can add nuts, ground cinnamon or try it with fresh fruit instead of chocolate. Peaches, apples, berries or plums can all work to flavour this little loaf.
I tried this recipe but used strong white flour and Candarel sugar plus ground almonds because that's all I had in with 2 eggs. This recipe says you need yoghurt but never says when to add it so I just added it with all the ingredients when it was mixed. I left out chocolate chips and melted chocolate to spread on the top when cake was cooled. Cake was very heavy and more bread like so next time I will use other flour. Tasted ok though. - 27 Apr 2014
