Nutty Chocolate Loaf

125g butter
175g sugar
2 eggs
100g ground hazelnuts
75g flour
2 (good) tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
some cocoa dissolved in 4 tbsp of milk (I had a pistachio flavoured one, yummy! but any will do)
dark chocolate buttons or pieces, as many as you like

Preheat oven to 180 C. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs. Then add flour, nuts, baking powder and salt. Mix cocoa and milk and add to the above until the dough has a nice consistency, manageable but not too sloppy. Add chocolate buttons or crumbly pieces. Line a loaf tin and add dough, bake at 180 C for ca. 45 mins until done.
