Moist, dense and chocolaty to the extreme! Indulge in a piece of this decadent cake for dessert with fresh fruit or as a snack with a café latté.
Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Butter a 10-in (25 cm) Bundt pan or two 9 x 5-in (23 x 13 cm) loaf pans.
In a bowl, gradually whisk milk into cocoa powder to make a smooth paste; whisk in yogourt and set aside.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture alternately with milk mixture, making 3 additions of flour and 2 of milk. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spread into prepared pan, smoothing top. Bake for 60 to 70 min or until a tester inserted in centre comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Let cool in pan on a rack for 15 min. Invert onto rack, remove pan and let cool completely. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
If using a dark-coloured metal pan, decrease the oven temperature to 325 °F (160 °C) to be sure the cake doesn't get too crusty.
For the Adventurous: Replace half of the chocolate chips with chopped white chocolate or white baking chips. Garnish with a drizzle of melted white or dark chocolate.
