This is a delicious chocolate bread; I think it tastes almost like cake, but regardless, it's very good! It's easy to make, and the chocolate chips sprinkled throughout add a neat twist. If you love chocolate, you'll love this chocolate bread recipe! My rating: 10/10


But it's more like cake, it's so sweet and good! Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy


This is definitely cake... :) I doubled the recipe and put one loaf in the freezer for's going to be perfect for when a chocolate craving hits! I like the chocolate chips sprinkled inside, and the glaze is just the right finish. Mmmmmm! Great with a cup of coffee at 3 pm!
