  • 180g buttermilk
  • 120ml vegetable oil

  • 40g chocolate, chopped
  • 125g raspberries, gently tossed in 1 tbsp flour
  • For the chocolate glaze:

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Step 3

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla essence.

Step 4

Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined. Gently fold in the chocolate and raspberries. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and even out with a spatula.

When the cake is cool, make the chocolate glaze. In a small, microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, and heat for 30 more seconds. Stir until chocolate is smooth.
