It's Tea-Time Chocolate Treats and I would like to sugere you an easy recipe that you can make.
Today I sugere you to try "CHOCOLATE CHIP WALNUT LOAF"
Makes 1 loaf
115g/ 4 oz/ half cup caster sugar
115g/ 4 oz/1 cup plain flour
5ml / 1 tsp baking powder
60ml / 4 tbsp corn flour
115g/ 4oz/ half cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
5ml / 1 tsp vanilla essence
30ml / 2 tbsp currants or raisins
25g / 1oz/ 1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped grated rind of half lemon
45ml / 3 tbsp plain chocolate chips
Icing sugar, for dusting
1 Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350°F/ Gas 4.
Grease and line 22 x 12 cm/ 8 1/2 x 4 ½ in loaf tin. Sprinkle 25ml/ 1/1/2 tsbp of the caster sugar into the plan and tilt to distribute the sugar in an even layer over the bottom and sides. Shake out any excess sugar.
2 Sift the flour, baking powder and corn flour into a mixing bowl. Repeat this twice more. Set aside.
3 With an electric mixer, cream the butter until soft. Add the remaining sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
4 Gently fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, in three batches; do not over mix.
5 Fold in the vanilla essence, currants or raisins, walnuts, lemon rind and chocolate chips until just blended.
6 Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Place on a serving plate and dust over an even layer of icing sugar before serving.
Alternatively, top with glace icing and decorate with walnut halves.
