  1. In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment whisk the eggs and vanilla essence on a high speed until pale, fluffy and doubled in volume.

  4. Add the milk.
  5. Fold in the remainder of the flour with a spatula.
  6. Remove 2 cups of the mixture and sift in the cocoa and fold until well mixed.
  7. In a greased 25cm loaf tin, layer the mixtures starting and ending with the vanilla layer.

  9. Bake at 160’C for 35-45 minutes.
