    Preheat the oven to 410°F (210°C).

    Bake for about 40 minutes. Check towards the end of the cooking time, as the cake should not be allowed to overcook and dry out.

    Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Remarks:

If you are a real chocolate lover, you can add chocolate chips to the mixture.

[Translator's note: the French have adopted the English term "cake" specifically for long, loaf-shaped cakes, like the typical fruit cake. But French "cakes" come in savoury versions, too!].
