Chocolate Chip Bread

Looking for something other than chocolate chip cookies??? This quick bread can be a great substitute!! It is very easy to make into loaves or muffins!



Chocolate Chip Bread

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (9 oz.) chocolate chips(I prefer milk chocolate)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts(optional)
Directions
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.

COMBINE flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Combine eggs, milk and vegetable oil in medium bowl. Add to flour mixture; mix just until moistened. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into prepared loaf pans.

BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool on wire racks.

NOTES: If you are looking for even more chocolate flavor, drizzle or spread the cooled loaves with chocolate! Microwave 1/2 cup chocolate chips in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead bag to mix. Microwave for an additional 10- to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a small hole in corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle over bread. If you don't want to use a plastic bag just melt chocolate chips in a bowl and use a knife to spread some melted chocolate on top. Personally, I love to spread the chocolate on top so that when I cut the loaves each slice has an extra kick of chocolate. However, if you are looking for elegant loaves, drizzling is the best option.

    I am going to have to try this. My grandma used to make chocolate chip zucchini bread, sounds odd but was awesome. I may have to try adding zucchini in there too! :)

    I'm with Julie... a little zucchini and applesauce (in place of oil) for extra moisture I bet would make me eat my veggies with this chocolaty goodness too :)
