Step 1

Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3.

Step 2

Grease and line a 2lb/900g loaf tin.

Step 3

To make the loaf cake batter, beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.

Step 4

Beat in the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder, milk and cocoa until smooth.

Step 5

Stir in the chocolate chips, then scrape into the tin.

Step 6

Bake for 45-50 mins until golden, risen and a skewer poked in the centre comes out clean.

Step 7

Cool in the tin, then lift out onto a wire rack over some kitchen paper.

Step 8

Melt the extra chocolate chunks separately in pans over barely simmering water, or in bowls in the microwave, then use a spoon to drizzle each in turn over the cake.

Step 9

Leave to set before slicing.
