Kit Kat Chocolate Loaf Cake

Yet another idea for a box cake mix.

The Bounty Cake that I made a few weeks ago was so delicious that I thought I would try another one of my favourite chocolate bars – the Kit Kat. And, being that Kit Kats are long and thin, it seemed obvious to make a loaf cake.

I love how the chocolate from the Kit Kats adds extra decadence to the rich chocolate cake from the packet. If you can get flavoured varieties of Kit Kats, (like mint or orange), then that would be perfect too.

You could also make cupcakes or a standard round cake using this same recipe – remember to adjust the cooking time.

Ingredients – serves 6-8:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix including frosting
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 9 mini Kit Kats


  • Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan forced/370F and spray a large loaf pan with cooking spray then line with baking paper. Let the baking paper overhang slightly as this will help you lift the cake out of the pan.
  • Put the cake mix into a bowl. Put the milk, vegetable oil, sour cream and eggs in a jug and whisk to combine, then add to the cake mix and stir until smooth.
  • Pour half the cake batter into the prepared pan then use 6 of the mini Kit Kats to form a layer. Pour over the remaining cake batter.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Spread the chocolate frosting from the packet over the top of the cake. Cut  the remaining Kit Kats in half, break them into individual fingers and then use those to decorate the cake.
  • Serve and enjoy!
