Chocolate and cake are my two favourite things, so ya’ll knew this was coming.

Here’s my recipe for a super easy and extremely delicious, double chocolate loaf cake.

Oh, I forgot to mention – this recipe requires just 1 bowl, a few simple ingredients and comes together in about 1 hour. Yes, dreams do come true.

The obsession is real.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Take the cake out of the tin, place on a wire rack and let it cool completely before decorating with icing and pecan nuts.
