The fudgiest chocolate loaf cake you’ll ever make. This decadent recipe will become your family’s favorite! Perfect for an afternoon snack.


  • 7 tbsp (100 grams) unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup (107 grams) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup (150 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp (1.2 grams) baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp (3 grams) baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup (25 grams) dark cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs (100 grams, approx.), whisked
  • 1 tsp (13 grams) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (110 grams) heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (120 grams) whole milk
  • 1 cup semisweet dark chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 300F. Grease a 9×5.5-inch (1.5qt) loaf pan with baking spray, line with parchment paper. Set aside
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the chopped chocolate and butter until smooth. Set aside and allow to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, granulated sugar, light brown sugar and salt. Whisk until fully incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the remaining wet ingredients, including the cooled melted chocolate and stir until smooth.
  5. Combine both mixtures until you have a thick and luscious batter. Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.
  6. Transfer batter to loaf pan and smooth out the top using an angled spatula. This batter works perfectly in a 9×5.5 inch pan. If you’re using a different size, make sure you don’t fill the pan all the way to the top (leaving at least 1 inch from edge), so you can avoid overflow.
  7. Bake for 55-62 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean (avoid using a knife). This is a fudgy and moist batter so it won’t come out clean, but it shouldn’t be too wet.
  8. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on top.
  9. Cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy while warm!
