  • 170 g butter (softened)
  • 170 g sugar
  • 100 g self-raising flour
  • 35 g ground almonds
  • 30 g cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 100 g chocolate chips (divided)


  • Preheat the oven to 180⁰C
  • Grease and line a 23x28cm oven dish (see notes).
  • Place all the ingredients from the butter to the eggs into a bowl. Using an electric mixer beat the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter, 1-2 minutes. Stir in 75g of the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the oven dish, sprinkle over the remaining chocolate chips and place in the middle of the preheated oven.
  • Cook for 35-45 minutes until the top springs back rapidly when you press it lightly and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes then turn out to finish cooling.
  • Store in an air tight container.


This is also the correct quantity for an 8 inch (21cm) cake tin if you want to make a round cake. It takes the same amount of time to cook.
