Chocolate Dream Cake

Published June 15, 2015 by thepinkgourmet

If you are looking for a rich chocolate loaf cake, this is the one for you! It is very moist and very easy to make.  Another good thing is that it makes 2.  You could keep one for yourself and give one away, or you can eat them both.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup  Milk
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup plain yoghurt, (not fat-free)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup  butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, at room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chip

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Butter a 10-in (25 cm) Bundt pan or two 9 x 5-in (23 x 13 cm) loaf pans.
2. In a bowl, gradually whisk milk into cocoa powder to make a smooth paste; whisk in yoghurt and set aside.
3. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
4. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla extract.
5. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture alternately with milk mixture, making 3 additions of flour and 2 of milk. Fold in chocolate chips.
6. Spread into prepared pan, smoothing top. Bake for 60 to 70 min or until a tester inserted in centre comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Let cool in pan on a rack for 15 min. Invert onto rack, remove pan and let cool completely.

Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.  You can also freeze half or all of it, wrap in parchment paper, then place in a zippy bag. Defrost as normal and enjoy! It will still be moist.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 1 hour or until done.  (Stick a toothpick in the center and when few moist crumbs stick to th toothpick they are ready).  Turn onto a wire rack to cool.
