Quick Chocolate Buttermilk Bread

Chocolate bread is the bomb.
No, literally.
The flavour explodes in your mouth.

Mighty fine.

i decided not to use a chocolate ganache of any kind because i snuck some chocolate kisses in there and that was already DOUBLE chocolate.

But if you're the daring, chocoholic kind, pour loadsa chocolate icing if you want!
It is actually quite a light cake. Not like black Forest or anything.
I just realised i typed cake there instead of bread.
Because it actually IS quick bread.

Ah, potato potahto.

My only complaint would be that the bread sort of broke when i tore the baking parchment from it. Although it my have been 100% my fault because i have been known to be pretty rough when it comes to ripping off baking parchment.


it is altered from here. by the way.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 oz unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate 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 chocolate morsels. Pour into prepared pan. 

BAKE for 50 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


Go get your sugar rush, then.
if you click the link there is a recipe for a chocolate honey butter to ice your cake bread

oh, and for the buttermilk substitute:

Note: I didn't have buttermilk (who does?) So i substituted with two cups of pretend buttermilk. You get this pretend butter milk by adding i tbsp of lemon juice to a 1 cup then filling it to the brim with milk and letting it rest for 5 minutes before using.
