DIRECTIONS

  • In a big bowl cream butter and sugar for at least 5 minutes (this is important!). Add the chocolate spread and espresso and beat for another 2 minutes.
  • Add each egg separately and beat in for 30 seconds each.
  • In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, mixed dried fruits and nuts and chocolate chunks.
  • Add half of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir to combine using a wooden spoon.
  • Then add milk and honey and stir to combine. Now add the remaining dry ingredients and quickly fold them inches.
  • Spread dough in a paper-lined or greased loaf pan (length of 30 cm/12 inch).
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 80 minutes or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Check after 50 minutes and if cake browns too much, cover it with a baking paper.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
