Afternoon Chocolate and Hazelnut Loaf

So this loaf is not going to win any beauty contests. In fact it looks so plain as to be something you wouldn't want to eat. Well don't be fooled. This loaf was yummy and the most perfect thing to have with a cuppa...or in my case a coffee from Planet during a nasty day shift. Give this a go....you can fool yourself that it's healthy but just focus on the carrots and ignore the hazelnuts, chocolate and butter. 

Afternoon Chocolate and Hazelnut Loaf

3 eggs
200 g butter, melted
200 g carrot, grated
200 g brown sugar
100 g plain flour
150 g wholemeal flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
70g hazelnuts, toasted and finely chopped
70g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 180C and grease the loaf tin (10 x 20 cm).

Combine the eggs, butter, carrot and sugar in a large bowl. Stir gently to combine without over mixing.

Sieve the flours with the baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the hazelnuts and chocolate.

Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and fold. Spoon into the loaf tin and bake about 50 mins until cooked (test with a skewer). Dust with icing sugar before serving.
