Chocolate Pound Cake
1 large loaf cake
Low FODMAP serve
1 slice - 2 slices
What you'll need
225g salted butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups Lo-Fo Pantry All Purpose/ Plain Flour
¼ cup cocoa
2.5 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
For the icing
50g butter, salted
1.5 cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
a dash almond milk
Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F) and grease a standard (23x13cm) loaf tin.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and the sugars until smooth.
Add the eggs and whisk until well combined.
Sift in the four, cacao powder, baking powder and salt and mix until a smooth and even batter forms.
Pour the batter in the loaf tin and even it out with a spatula.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until risen, pulled away from the sides and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Leave the cake in the tin for 5 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool.
While the cake is cooling, make the icing by whisking together all the icing ingredients until smooth and fluffy. Spread evenly over the cake.
