For those of us who can never get enough chocolate, here’s an easy quick bread that’s packed with chocolate flavor. Watch this carefully toward the end of the baking time and make sure to remove it from the oven as soon as it’s ready. Overbaking will make the bread very dry.
Cut the bread into thin slices and serve with preserves or marmalade. Raspberry preserves or ginger marmalade are especially good with it.
Keep the bread under a cake dome or loosely wrapped in plastic wrap on the day it is made. Wrap in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and keep at room temperature for up to 3 or 4 days. Freeze for longer storage.
