Lindt Chocolate In This Recipe


Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 180C/160 Fan. Grease and line a 900 ml / 9 x 5 in loaf tin with greaseproof paper.

Step 2.

Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and ground almonds with the sugar in a large bowl.

Step 3.

In a separate jug, whisk together the sunflower oil, almond milk and vanilla extract.

Step 4.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and beat until combined - you should have a smooth batter. Fold in the chopped chocolate until evenly distributed throughout.

Step 5.

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for about 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean - the exact time will vary slightly if using a 900 ml tin with different dimensions.

Step 6.

Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

Step 7.

Slice, serve and enjoy!
