Coffee and Chocolate Loaf

Another recipe from Hummingbird (I picked my four favourites). This is on a theme I have made before but I like the idea of the small amount of strong coffee to bring out the chocolate flavour. Also it's the type of cake where you always have all the ingredients in the baking cupboard.
