In this instructable I will show you how to make chocolate bread. This recipe for homemade chocolate bread is easy to make. It winds up being like a cross between banana bread, chocolate cake, and a brownie, haha. It is good, if you have never tried chocolate bread before you should give this recipe a try. Also you can add nuts and chocolate chips to it as well. If I can do it, you can do it. Let's get baking! :)

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temp/softened (115g)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (240g)

Step 2: Cream Butter and Sugar

First preheat the oven to 350 F (176 C). Now let's cream our butter and our sugar together. Add your softened room temp butter to a large bowl and then add your sugar. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer and cream the two ingredients together. It usually only takes 15 to 20 seconds.

Step 3: Eggsellent

Now let's add in our two large eggs. Mix them until well combined. After that scrape the sides of the bowl with the spatula.

Step 4: Buttermilk Time

Now let's add in our buttermilk. From now on we will only be using a spatula or wooden spoon. We don't want to over mix the batter, so put that mixer away. Use a spatula and fold and stir in the buttermilk.

Step 5: Sift Those Dry Ingredients

Next we add all of our dry ingredients into a sifter and sift them into our bowl. Then fold and stir the ingredients together until you are left with a nice thick quick bread batter.

Step 6: Bake Bake Bake

Now add the batter into a 5x9 bread pan. Grease the bottom of the pan with shortening or cooking spray first. After adding the chocolate bread batter, you can smooth and level the top if you wish. Now bake it in the oven for 55 to 60 minutes. Check it after 50 minutes with a toothpick, and then keep baking for 5 minutes, then check, etc. until when you check the very center, the toothpick comes out clean.

Step 7: Cool and Serve

Let the bread cool in the pan for 15 minutes then remove it and put on a wire rack to cool completely. Then serve yourself up a slice! Treat your self! Be careful you may wind up eating the whole loaf in one sitting...hehe :) Enjoy!

*I like to put some butter on my slices or strawberry preserves.

I made two times, one in a bread machine and the other one on the oven, I would suggest adding 1 vanilla extract spoon and 3 extra spoons of cocoa

I've got this great bread machine that I never use. Do you suppose this recipe would work in a bread machine? I have adapted other bread recipes to the bread machine, and it worked out pretty well. I don't mind doing it the way you describe, I just feel kind of guilty for never using this wonderful machine.

I am not that well versed in bread machines, don't you normally just do yeast breads in them? I would say give it a shot, it would be a fun experiment, even if it doesn't turn out exactly. :) If you do wind up trying it let me know how it turns out. :)

I'd like to make this, but I can't get buttermilk where I live. Can you suggest a substitution for it?
