RECIPIES My Favorite Things – Chocolate Chocolate Chip Loaf December 21, 2018

Oh my goodness.  These are delicious.  It’s like a cross between a chocolate cake and a loaf of dessert bread.  It’s thick and moist and mmm… mmm good.  They’re nice to slice for a holiday party, or you can give them away as gifts to someone who is a chocolate lover.  I love these, and I’m happy to share the recipe for all your holiday chocolate dreams!





  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, soften
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray two medium (9 x 5) loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray, or four/five mini loaf pans (5 3/4 x 3 1/4 x 2 1/4.)
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy, about two minutes. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla and applesauce and mix until well combined. Add the dry ingredients stirring until just combined.
  4. Coat the chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons flour and stir into batter. Spoon batter into prepared pans. Don’t fill more than 2/3 full. Bake side-by-side for about one hour or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (Bake 35-40 minutes for the mini loaves.)
