BBD # 18 Quick Breads

This month we are gently hosted by Mansi of Fun & Food Blog who chose Quick Breads for us.
I chose this wonderfully chocolatey bread from Rose Levy Berambaum's 'The Bread Bible'.
This bread is very quick to assemble and finish even my husband, who doesn't appreciate sweets to much, couldn't stop eating it so next time I'll double the recipe !!

Chocolate Chocolate Chips Bread

Unsweetened Cocoa 21 gr
Boiling Water 44 gr
Pure Vanilla Extract 1/2 teaspoon
3 Large Eggs
Cake Flour 125 gr
Turbinado Sugar 175 gr
Baking Powder 3/4 teaspoon
Salt 1/4 teaspoon
Unsalted Butter 184 gr
Chocolate, chopped 28 gr

Preheat the oven at 350 F.
Whisk together cocoa and water, cool, whisk in eggs and vanilla.
Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
Add half the chocolate and the butter and mix well add the rest of the chocolate and the chocolate.
Scrape into a prepared loaf pan (5 cups) and bake 55 to 60 minutes until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
Enjoy !

Mmm... chocolate on chocolate - what a wonderful combo! I love the shape too - what're the dimensions of that pan?

What a beautiful loaf! Chocolate and chocolate is a great idea!

Double chocolate in a quick bread?! Yes, please. I love that you can have an uber-chocolatey flavor with all the moistness and tender crumb of a quick bread. I've got to make this awesome-looking loaf!

Natalia, this looks soooo delicious! I think your pan must be like mine - very long and thin. Mine is very old; you really can't find that size in the US. Is it common in Italy?
