This sweet bread is so yummy. Note: you can cut the cooking time if you use two small loaf pans instead of one large one. If you use the smaller pans, bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

I wanted to love this bread, but I found it only so-so. It was quite dry and definitely needed the added chocolate drizzled over the top. It had lovely flavor, though. Thanks for a neat one to try!
