This bread is a chocaholic's dream come true! It's rich, chocolatey, and delicious! I usually eat quick breads for breakfast, but this one is more of a dessert, which is fine with me. I'll definitely be making this again.
Very good, but I had a problem integrating the cocoa after I mixed it with the melted butter. It clumped a lot andI spent too much time trying to break up the clumps.
This if very good, moist and the chocolate taste is perfect. Next time I will increase the flour a bit. The texture was a little too moist for my taste. Thanks for sharing.
