Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Double Chocolate Strawberry Loaf

For me Xmas time equates baking time, I guess it does the same for everyone but from the past 3 years that I have been running Sin-A-Mon as a bakery, even more so. The orders are plenty and this is the season when both me and my oven are working overtime. However this time around due to a lot of personal and health issues I didn’t take any orders but that doesn’t mean I am not baking. The child’s winter vacations have started and my kitchen is turned into a restaurant. He orders and I cook/bake. It’s so much fun and considering that I have had a very busy year, I am really thankful for this year ending bonding exercise. If you want to keep track of what I am cooking/baking for him, follow me on instagram here

Double Chocolate Strawberry Loaf So one of the orders that the child gave was bake something with chocolate and strawberry and we churned up a simple double chocolate strawberry loaf. Simple yet delicious I must add. The loaf is not too sweet and super moist. The sudden bite of chocolate pieces in it makes it extra special as far as I think. I baked two medium loaves and all it took was one evening for them to get over. These are essentially with egg but I think if you replace the 3 eggs with 3/4 cup of curd + 2 tsp of vinegar the recipe will work just as well. Also I used roughly chopped dark chocolate but you can easily sub that with chocolate chips, dark or milk depending on your preference. So here is the recipe.

Recipe – Double Chocolate Strawberry Loaf

What I used

  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 vanilla bean scraped
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

How I made it

  • Pre heat oven to 180C and grease a medium sized loaf pan with butter. Set aside.
  • Sift together all the dry ingredients namely whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon & nutmeg powder and baking powder & soda and set aside
  • In a bowl of your mixer, cream together butter and sugar till light and fluffy. This will take about 3-4 minutes.
  • Now add egg one at a time, beating till it is fully blended.
  • Add the sour cream and beat further for a minute and fold in the flour mixture to it.
  • In the end fold in the strawberries and the chopped chocolate
  • Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes till a toothpick comes out clean
  • Wait for it completely cool before removing from the pan and slicing
