What goes better than a yummy chocolate bread & coffee? For me, pretty much nothing! So I combined both the coffee and the chocolate into this delicious Mocha Quick Bread! Go to Recipe
I love coffee. It just doesn’t feel like morning without my coffee. I also love chocolate! So of course I love mochas. I don’t drink them that often as I tend to drink most of my coffee at home. But I love using both of these flavors in my baking.
The coffee flavor in the bread is not overly strong as both my children and my non-coffee drinking mother still enjoyed this bread. But I think it enhances the flavor of the chocolate in the bread and makes it even more delicious.
I made this bread dairy free but you can use regular milk instead. I don’t always handle dairy very well so I often switch it out for almond milk.
- 4 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate or semisweet
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar firmly packes
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine or coconut (for dairy free)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee
- 1/4 cup milk or almond milk
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 by 5 loaf pan with non-stick spray.
Melt chocolate in microwave at 50% power stirring every 10 t0 30 second. Stir until smooth and set aside.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the sugar and butter until smooth and creamy.
Add eggs and beat well. Mix in coffee and milk.
Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fold in chocolate until combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack to finish cooling.
This bread was devoured very quickly! I barely had time to get the pictures taken before it was gone. It was almost as bad as the muffins, I will share on Thursday. I had to make those three times before I got pictures!
