Spiced Chocolate Loaf: DG, from Green & Black’s Ultimate Chocolate Recipes, the New Collection edited by Micah Carr-Hill


  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 175g unsalted butter, soft at room temperature, plus extra for greasing
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 4 medium free-range eggs
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder


For the chocolate ganache icing: 

  • 60g milk chocolate (cake is for kids)
  • 60ml cream


Preheat the oven to 180℃. Butter the bottom and sides of a 22cm loaf tin.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Let cool somewhat.

Mix the sugar and icing sugar till light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each one.

Add the chocolate.

Mix the flour and spices and baking powder in a bowl.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture.

Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for about 35 mins or until a skewer inserted in the middles comes out clean.

Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

For the icing: chop the milk chocolate up very small. Put the cream into a small saucepan and allow to come to a boil. Pour over the chocolate and stir together.

Drizzle over the cooled cake.
