Rocky Hill Chocolate Loaf

I attempted to follow a recipe, but was generous with the cocoa powder, cut back on the sugar, doubled the amount of baking powder, and replaced coffee powder with tea. (How's that for following a recipe?)

It tastes much better than my previous ugly experiment: :)

P.S. Blogging from the phone and curious to know how this turns out.
