Buttermilk Chocolate Bread

Buttermilk Chocolate Bread

"I serve this rich cake-like bread and its creamy chocolate honey butter often at Christmastime. It makes a great brunch item, but it also goes well on a dinner buffet. This recipe won me a 'Best in Category' award in a local cooking contest. -Patrice Bruwer, Grand Rapids, Michigan"

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in pecans.
  2. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Add honey and chocolate syrup; mix well. Serve with the bread.

Wonderfully moist bread! Thanks for the yummy recipe! I made the following tiny changes: subbed applesauce for the butter, reduced sugar to ¾ cup, added 1 tsp. of vanilla and ½ tsp of cinnamo...

This was weird. It isn't like a banana bread and really sweet, but it wasn't like normal bread. I was in charge of bread for Easter and it sat on the buffet and didn't move. I also made Banana B...

Very nice moist bread. I just substituted applesauce for the butter and only used 3/4 cup of sugar. It tasted really good. Thanks for the recipe.

This was very GOOD! It was light and fluffy. I didn't put in the pecans, but i did add 1/3 cup chocolate chips. I didn't make the honey butter, I thought it was great on its own. Very good with ...

This is a great chocolate cake-bread. I used canola oil and also added chocolate chips. I tried to decorate the top with pecan halves, but the batter is very thin, like cake batter, so my pecan ...

If you're looking for a rich flavored bread/cake, consider adding a bit of molasses and a dash of cinnamon. If you're looking for a chocolatey bread/cake, you'll need to replace the nuts with ch...

I found this recipe in my Taste of Home and tried it a week or so ago. It was a hit, and I will be making it again tonight. It's not overly sweet but is moist with a good texture. We didn't t...

So yummy! Made this as muffins - still sitting warm on kitchen counter. Son couldn't wait to dig in. He took one bite and moaned in delight. I made just a few changes: subbed 1/2 cup wheat ...

Definitely a cake-like bread. I almost wish I hadn't made it because I can't stop eating it. I almost didn't make the honey butter to go with it, but I am so glad that I did because it goes so...
