Apple and Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

    1 hour 40 minutes

    Chunks of apple and chocolate go together surprisingly well in this moist loaf cake. All my friends love it, even those who don't normally like cakes with fruit in!

    Serves: 8 

    • 225g self raising flour
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 110g butter
    • 3 to 4 eating apples
    • 150g milk or dark chocolate
    • 110g sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or essence
    • 5 to 6 tablespoons milk

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:1hour15min  ›  Ready in:1hour40min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line the bottom of a small loaf tin with baking paper.
    2. Sift together the flour and salt, then rub in the butter.
    3. Peel, core and cut the apples into 1cm pieces. Chop the chocolate into small chunks. Stir the apples, chocolate and sugar into the mixture then make a well in the centre.
    4. Beat the egg with the vanilla and 5 tablespoons milk. Gradually work these into the dry ingredients to get a dropping consistency, adding a little more milk if necessary. Pour into the tin and smooth out the top.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer comes out clean, about 1 1/4 hours.


    A slice of this cake also works well as a dessert, served warm with custard or ice cream!

    I needed something easy to bake with my 3 yr old daughter, and had apples from the garden too. We baked it and took along to a charity coffee morning and it was super popular! Most people didn't know I had made It so the comments weren't just to flatter me. It came out very moist and dense so a good stodgy cake or pudding option. Easy peasy pleaser!

    Very easy to make. I used choc chips. It was a great success as a birthday cake at a staff team breakfast!!  -  24 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    very delicious and so easy to make, i added some pear and some yoghurt raisins and it tasted like apple pie with toffee. although the pear made it extremely moist and so knife didn't come out dry, so cooked for a while longer just to be on the safe side, but would easily make just as is. Thanks for a lovely bake xxx  -  12 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
