Delicious Chocolate Bread Recipe!
If it’s not obvious to those of you who read my blog, I have a severe sweet tooth and most recipes that I share are sweet treats!! I love chocolate and I love bread so when you combine the two – YUM! Here is a ridiculously awesome chocolate bread recipe! This stuff is divine! I don’t know…the toss up is between this recipe and my peanut butter balls recipe! I’m thinking though that this one is quickly becoming a family favorite.
Prep Time: 15 minutesCooking Time: 60 minutesCooling Time: 10 minutes
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk *
1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided (optional)
1/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
COMBINE flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl. Beat butter and
sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in 1/4 cup pecans.
Pour into prepared pan.
BAKE for 20 minutes. Top with morsels and remaining pecans; continue baking for 30 to 35
minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for
10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Serve with Chocolate Honey Butter.
FOR CHOCOLATE HONEY BUTTER:
MICROWAVE 1/2 cup NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels in small,
uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; STIR. The morsels
may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second
intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted; let cool. Beat cooled morsels, 1/2 cup (1 stick)
softened butter and 2 tablespoons honey in small mixer bowl until fluffy. Makes about 1 cup.
*NOTE: If you do not have buttermilk on hand, you can substitute sour milk made with
NESTLÉ CARNATION Evaporated Milk (Regular, Lowfat or Fat Free). Measure 1/2 cup
NESTLÉ CARNATION Evaporated Milk into glass measuring cup. Add 1/2 cup water and 1
tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice; stir. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.
