    Something else. stir chocolate chips in before you spoon into loaf tin  -  21 Oct 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added a small amount of whole milk as the mixture was quite dry, made it much gooier (if that's a word!)  -  28 Aug 2010


    Something else. LOAF-TIN RECIPE MOST IMPORTANT? READ ON! More of a rewrite than a tweak, really, but I only had a loaf tin at the time so I needed a loaf recipe and based it on this. Only had self-raising flour, so I used a bit more cocoa powder, didn't have any bicarb so used a bit more baking powder. Didn't have choc chips, so melted 6oz of luxury baking choc in. After all these changes, I decided that it probably wouldn't hurt to add an extra egg. As for the milk, I just added what seemed to give the resultant cake mixture the correct consistency. By the way, I used brown sugar! I didn't open the oven until right near the end and had to keep baking based on skewer tests for some time, but it cooked beautifully! I melted 6oz of cake covering with 2oz of Clover and an ounce or so of cocoa powder, which wasn't quite enough icing, but the result was an amazing cake suitable for a restaurant dessert. If you want more of a cakey-cake, you need only add more sugar to the icing. My general comment is that this is a very adaptable recipe!  -  20 May 2009
