GF Chocolate and hazelnut loaf

Saturdays are for baking.

Especially when it’s cold and windy out, a cosy apartment is the perfect setting to warm up the oven and create something delicious. Last Saturday I tried out a chocolate and hazelnut loaf. I have made this recipe before, but without the hazelnuts. As the clouds rolled in and the sky got darker, my kitchen came to life.


  • 115g butterIMGP4080a
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 284ml buttermilk
  • 220g GF self-raising flour
  • 45g cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100g plain chocolate chips
  • 50g chopped hazelnuts (plus  a little to sprinkle on top)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175C and grease a loaf tin.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the buttermilk.
  4. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and xanthan gum and stir into the buttermilk mixture.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts.
  6. Pour into the loaf tin, sprinkle with a few chopped hazelnuts on top and bake for 45 mins.
