This is a lovely, dark chocolate loaf cake that’s beautiful with a cup of coffee or with vanilla bean ice cream. Modified from a recipe from The Baking Bird, the loaf can be made slightly less intense with a lighter cocoa.
Yes, the loaf comes out just that black.

Chocolate Loaf Cake
1 cup buttermilk

1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tea vanilla
1 tea blackstrap molasses

Preheat oven to 350. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, or grease well.
In a mixer bowl, add flour, cocoa, salt, and soda. Mix well, then add sugar, molasses, vanilla, egg, milk, and oil. Mix until well blended, but be careful not to over-beat.
Bake for 55-60 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes then finish cooling out of the pan.
