Chocolate Loaf Cake Recipe

When I bake I always anticipate things going wrong and a lot of the time they do, I just don't have much faith in myself! I fully expected this Chocolate Loaf cake to go wrong but luckily it went incredibly well and tasted amazing! I am a huge lover of chocolate cake and I have to say I do make a pretty good one, have you seen my Easter cake recipe aswell?
175g softened butter
175g golden caster sugar
3 eggs
140g self raising flour 
100ml milk
4 tbsp cocoa
100g of chocolate chips or broken up chocolate 

1. Heat oven to 170 degrees and line a loaf tin with baking paper, I just used some Dr Oetker release spray which is just amazing
2. Beat the butter and sugar with a whisk until soft and fluffy and then add in the eggs
3. When you've mixed the eggs in, add the flour, milk and cocoa until you have a smooth batter
4. Add any chocolate chunks or chocolate chips and give it a good mix
5. Pour into the tin then bake for 45-50 minutes, I insert a skewer towards the end and if it comes out clean, its done
6. Cool in the tin then transfer to a wire rack, once it had cooled I added some melted chocolate drizzled on top

Let me know if you give this recipe a go! It was such a good cake, and a perfect amount if you have people over or are planning a party or anything similar!

Hi, I am planning to make this today with the kids - is that 170 degrees normal oven or fan?
