I have been touting the chocolate-as-breakfast philosophy for some time now. I am neither a medical doctor nor a nutritionist, but I wholeheartedly believe that a few bites of chocolate throughout the day will save you from an all-out midnight binge (the kind where you devour a pint of ice cream and black out). Though this philosophy has not been tested under the supervision of a scientist, I can assure you that the Double-Chocolate Loaf is a great way to start your own experimentation. It is extremely easy to make—it is a quick bread, after all—and the chocolate flavor is intense without being too sweet. Slice and eat it plain, or toast and spread it with a bit of butter, cream cheese, or our recommended spread: Peanut Butter Cream Cheese. It is wonderful with coffee and the morning newspaper.
