Chocolate and Strawberry Loaf Recipe

Chocolate and strawberries has always been a win win combination and chocolate cake is always an amazing thing, so why not combine them both!

If you’re after something slightly different, you can add in a few teaspoons of  coffee for an added flavour! This recipe can be made in a normal cake tin, cupcake cases or in a loaf tin as we’ve done here. This recipe will make a dozen muffins or if baking in a ~23cm cake tin times all the ingredients by 1.5.
