Chocolate chip loaf cake

The latest recipe we tried from our top 20 easy bakes for kids, is the chocolate chip loaf cake. I personally love loaf cake, it’s my favourite kind of cake. Lemon drizzle is my favourite, but the kids wanted chocolate chip. The kids always win!

Ingredients & Method

  • 250g butter
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 250g self raising flour, sifted
  • 100g chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease and flour a 900g (2 lb) loaf tin.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the sieved flour, then stir in the chocolate pieces/chips.
  3. Pour into greased loaf tin and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Fun to make

Lily had a great time making this, as with all these recipes. The idea is that they are simple enough for Jack and Lily to make, with minimal involvement from me. I helped with weighing the ingredients, breaking the eggs (as Lily gets very anxious about getting shell in the mixture), and putting in and out of the oven.

Like I said, Lily really enjoyed making the chocolate chip loaf cake. It’s a pretty big mixture so takes a bit of work to mix, but Lily had some music on to keep her motivated.

Lily sieved some icing sugar on the top of the cake to finish it off. It turned out pretty well, all of the chocolate chips seem to have sunk to the bottom half of the cake, but I like the texture of the cake. And in my humble opinion it tasted awesome.

    Looks gorgeous Adam, lily did a fantastic job. Looks so fluffy for a loaf cake. Whenever I have tried them in the past they have always been quite dense.

    I’m with you on the lemon drizzle cake though 🤤

    This looks like a fun, simple recipe to make with kids! We don’t have kids ourselves, but I’m the aunt that always has something fun planned when they are visiting. One of my nieces is in LOVE with spending time in the kitchen. I’m going to save this and try it out with her the next time that she’s here!
