So, this afternoon I decided that I must try the cake function out on the bread machine. I trawled the internet and fused a few recipes together and came up with this one. I had chopped up chocolate to chuck in when the beep went, the beep doesn’t go on the cake setting. I had to quickly sprinkle the chocolate bits over the top. On the cake setting it took just over an hour. We may not have waited long enough for it to cool as it crumbled rather a lot. It tasted fine and was chocolate cake, like chocolate cake normally is. I found that the bread machine instructions had a few recipes in, I will have to try these too.
Spray the bread tin, put ingredients in as per your machines instructions. Mine is liquids first. Set on ‘cake’ setting and walk away. Leave in tin for around 5 minutes at the end.
* note 10/10/14 – must try this again and would love to know how it came out for you! Please leave a comment.
