Chocolate Madness!

The food we definitely love: fresh baked chocolate bread for perfect mornings.

Secret Yummy Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups flour, 2 cups granulated sugar, 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 cups milk 1 cup vegetable oil, 3 large eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon instant espresso granules dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water, 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons flour.

Secret Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 °F. Spray the loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper. Give the parchment a quick spray as well.

2. In a large bowl blend together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Then beat in the milk, oil, eggs, vanilla and optional espresso mixture. In a medium bowl, toss the chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of flour (this will help to prevent the chips from sinking to the bottom of the batter), and gently stir into the batter. Important: use medium speed for the mixer!

3. Bake in preheated oven about 1 hour and 15-20 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 20 minutes. Remove the bread from the pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

Deliciously,

Gloria!
