Chocolate Quick Bread#BreadBakers

  Today was the posting day for the Bread bakers facebook group. We a group of food bloggers bake a bread according to the theme given by the host and post on second Tuesday of each month.

  For this Month the Theme was Quick Breads by Stacy Livingston Rushton. She wanted us to bake in a Loaf pan. In her words .... Quick breads are made with rising agents like baking powder and / or baking soda , not yeast. One bowl has the wet ingredients , another the dry . When mixed together they form a soft dough or very thick batter. Your quick breads can be sweet or savory but I'd like them baked in a Loaf Pan.

  I decided to make this chocolate quick bread , as everyone in our family likes chocolate a lot. This Bread tastes similar to chocolate cake as the ingredients are similar and as usual  I make it an eggless bread by using Yogurt .

 I used Unsweetened cocoa powder and chocolate chips in this bread.You can use melted chocolate too .

Requirements : 

Two cup all purpose flour
 Half cup unsweetened cocoa powder
 Quater tsp salt
 One  cup Yogurt
 3/ 4 cup  unsalted butter
 Two tsp  baking powder
 Half tsp baking soda
 Two cup sugar 
 Half cup Milk
 Two tbs vegetable oil
 Half cup chocolate chips


 Sift the flour , salt , baking powder , baking soda and cocoa powder twice. Transfer to a wide bowl.

In another bowl , add butter and sugar whisk together.

Add the milk, yogurt  and vegetable oil , whisk well till the mixture becomes smooth.

Add this liquid mixture to the flour mixture and mix with a spatula. Fold in the chocolate chips / nuts if adding.

Grease the loaf pan with butter and pour the batter and tap the baking pan on counter top for even spread of batter. Smoothen the top with a spatula. 

 I sprinkled sugar on top before baking........

 Bake in a preheated oven @ 200*C at convection mode for 30 minutes. 

Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes , de-mould and slice to serve.
