Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling

Makes

5 mini loaves (6 slices each)

The moist texture of these mini loaves resembles a pound cake. Each bite is rich and succulent, making this perfect for dessert as well as snacking.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 5 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash salt

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the melted chocolate chips, eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with applesauce just until moistened. Fold in miniature chips.
  2. Divide batter among five greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans, about 1 cup in each. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For glaze, combine the chocolate chips, butter and water in a saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaves.
Editor's Note: Two 8x4x2-in. loaf pans may be used; bake for 50-55 minutes.
