  1. Preheat the oven to 170C and grease and line a loaf tin with baking parchment.

  3. Add 200g of the chocolate chips to the pumped batter and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of the loaf.

  5. Allow to cool completely before removing from the tin, slice and serve.

If you have issues with chocolate chips sinking to the bottom of your cakes just dust them in a teaspoon of plain flour before adding to the batter.
