Milk Chocolate Loaf Cake | Marsha's Baking Addiction

Today I bring you a recipe for all the chocolate lovers – Milk Chocolate Loaf Cake!

This is my favourite chocolate loaf cake. It is incredibly moist and tender, and almost melt-in-your-mouth. The chocolate glaze is deliciously sweet, and sets on the cake beautifully.

This chocolate loaf cake isΒ perfectΒ for any occasion. A definite crowd pleaser!

If you happen to have any left over (…really?) this cake keeps fresh in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to a week. Or you can freeze a baked, unfrosted loafΒ for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge and bring to room temperature before serving.

I like to warm my slices up before eating. Makes them deliciously moist, rich, and gooey again…

This loaf cake is such an easy, simple recipe to throw together, and it will only take about 20 minutes or less of your time, then an hour in the oven. Time to put the kettle on…

Then let cool completely before frosting, and slicing.

Milk Chocolate Loaf Cake

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Yields 1
Author Marsha

Ingredients

  • 1 and 3/5 cups self-raising flour 200g
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder 30g, sieved
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 115g, softened
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar 250g
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 90g

For the Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter 60g, softened
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 cups icing sugar 250g
  • 3 tablespoons hot milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A handful of chocolate chips optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/176C. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, and salt together until combined.
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the butter, and sugar together until combined. Beat in the eggs, milk, water, and vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix together until combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with only a few small moist crumbs. Make sure to loosely cover the cake with aluminum foil halfway through baking to prevent the top from getting too brown. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before removing and frosting.

For the Chocolate Glaze

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the butter cocoa powder, icing sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth and is your desired thickness.
  2. Pour or spoon over the cake loaf, and sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired.

    Wow! I still can’t get over how incredibly moist and chocolatey this loaf looks. The chocolatey-ness practically jumps through the screen and I can say with certainty that my cup of tea is begging for a date with a slice of this chocolatey goodness. Is there such a thing as Tinder for cakes? πŸ˜‰
