Quick & Easy Chocolate Bread

Posted on

I’ve made this lovely, simple bread a few times over the past couple of years.  Most recently it was made to help finish off a container of homemade ice cream that was in need of a bowl mate.  Whether you eat it alone or topped with ice cream, it’s super yum.

Quick & Easy Chocolate Bread

1/2 c. butter, softened

1 1/4 c. sucanat (you can also use a mix of white & brown sugar)

1 egg

1 c. butter milk (or milk mixed with 1 T lemon juice)

1 t pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 c. cocoa powder

1/4 t baking soda

1/2 t baking powder

1/4 t sea salt

Preheat oven to 325°.  Butter a 9×5 loaf pan & set aside.

Cream together butter & sucanat.  Add egg, buttermilk & vanilla & mix well.  Add remaining ingredients & mix until everything is incorporated.  Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 60 minutes or until middle is set.  Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes before turning out carefully.

Slice & eat all on its own or topped with ice cream if desired {YUM!}.  Enjoy!!
