Rich and Decadent – Double Chocolate Quick Bread Recipe
Stand back store-bought loafs because this double chocolate quick bread recipe tops them all.
It has all of the foundations of a great quick bread. First, it’s quick to make and uses simple ingredients. Second, it is very moist, which allows the hints of Dutch cocoa to shine.

Why all the fuss about a quick bread? Perhaps it is because I love chocolate and cake and the two combined–well–it’s a chocoholic’s delight.
This recipe is basically a one-bowl, dump quick bread, which means very little cleaning on your part.
That’s pretty great, considering that if you need to whip up something to take to a book club, a potluck or even a bake sale, you can easily do this.
And, did I tell you that this loaf is great for freezing? It is.
Now there are a couple of “secret ingredients” that add to the layers of flavors of this Chocolate Quick Bread: Chambord and Godiva Chocolate liqueur. That being said, if you don’t have or don’t want to include these ingredients you can easily substitute it with a tablespoon of a good chocolate syrup.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
