Introduction: Harvest Loaf or (minion Harvest Cakes)

This recipe was given to me by my third grade teacher we made it in class it has always been my favorite

The secrete is the mini chocolate chips they add just enough chocolate with out a big crunch

I have included the amounts for one, two and three loaves i have made these as loves and in my three inch cup cake pan  today I will be using a babycakes cupcake maker that i got a second hand store.  I think i will be using this a lot this holiday season.
