You can't go wrong with my grandmother's chocolaty bread recipe. It tastes as yummy as it looks...it's my most-requested special-occasion bread...and it never lasts long at bake sales.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts if desired.
  • 2. Pour into four greased 5-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 4 mini loaves.
