Chocolate Nut Bread dessert loaves are a cinch to make -- keep some on hand for snack attacks or unexpected guests.
- 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.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
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.
TIP: If you are looking for even more chocolate flavor, try drizzling the cooled loaves with chocolate! Microwave 1/2 cup semi-sweet morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead bag to mix. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a small hole in corner of bag; squeeze to drizzle over bread.
Review This Recipe
Chocolate Nut Bread
When I first looked at the recipe, I was disappointed because I was looking for a chocolate bread, but after looking it over, and changing a few things, I came up with a moist double chocolate bread. I left out 1 cup of flour and added 1/2 cup cocoa and increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Then to help with the dryness that others had commented on, I substituted applesauce for the oil. All the rest is the same, and now I have my chocolate bread. Wonderful with peanut butter.
