  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease a 22cm (top measurement) bundt or ring pan with melted butter and dust evenly with a little plain flour to coat. Place on a baking tray. Use an electric mixer to beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

  2. Step 2

    Add the self-raising flour, almond meal or hazelnut meal and almond essence or vanilla bean paste and fold until just combined. Stir in the choc chips. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.

  3. Step 3

    Bake for 40 mins or until a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean. Set aside in the pan to cool completely before turning onto a wire rack or serving platter. Dust with icing sugar and cut into pieces to serve.
