Lynn demonstrates how to make a Chocolate Quick Bread. This is delicious served with Chocolate Honey Butter. You can serve this as a dessert or just have for a snack in the afternoon with a cup of tea or coffee. Makes 16 servings. Adapted from Nestle.
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x5" loaf pan.
Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in ¼ cup pecans. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 20 minutes. Top with morsels and remaining ¼ cup pecans; continue baking for 30-35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Serve with Chocolate Honey Butter, if desired.
