Sour Cream Chocolate Bread

While surfing a few days ago, I came across this recipe that had been posted on the Gardenweb site. I am always looking for new bread ideas and today I tried this one. I really like it, and the only change I will make next time is to add some chopped nuts. Upon searching my pantry, I discovered that I didn't have any. :( I think I will make this using my three mini pans next time also. It's nice to have something like this in the freezer for unexpected company or times when you want something with chocolate and don't have the time.... or bake something! Speaking from experience here! :)

Sour Cream Chocolate Bread

1 stick butter, melted

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa (I used Hershey's Special Dark)

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter & sugar with electric mixer on medium speed. Add eggs & beat until fluffy. Continue beating and add sour cream. Add remaining ingredients, mix until blended. Pour into 9x5 loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until tests done.

Makes 1 loaf
