Recipe Comments & Reviews

I substituted ripe banana for the applesauce. I did not put in the cup of melted chips. I put all of the batter into one loaf pan. I cooked it at 350 for 45 minutes then lowered the heat to 325 and cooked for an additional 15 minutes. I kept checking the center with a toothpick. I cooked it until the toothpick came out clean. D
This is very yummy. Only 4 stars because it tastes just a bit gritty in comparison to a normal bread or cake. I baked it in two 8 inch round pans for 35 mins. Beautiful presentation with a glazed top, plus I realized you could layer the two for an especially decadant chocolate dessert.
I use the gluten free flour mix Red Mill has. It is a blend of bean flours and makes for a smoother texture. Add an extra 1/2 tsp vanilla to "mask" the bean flavor. :0)
I loved this recipe. And if you love chocolate desserts, this will satisfy your chocolate craving. I too feel that this bread is more like cake than bread. It's rich and moist (thanks to the applesauce) and the glaze makes it sinfully good. I realized when it was time to pour the batter into the pan, that I needed 5 mini loaf pans, which I didn't have. I used a large loaf pan, increased the baking time to about 1 hour, and it came out terrific.
Delicious and decadent. More like cake then bread. You would never know it was gluten free. My husband made this recipe to satisfy his sweet tooth. Instead of loaf pans he made them in cupcake papers. He also used "Perfect Flour Blend" by Nameste Foods for the gluten free flour. It hold up well in recipes.
I like to use mini pans and freeze one for later.
This bread is amazingly good.
This is THE best dessert bread! Try it once and you'll love it!

“Yule” Be The Talk of the Town with this Holiday Cake
December 19, 2014 by Mallory

We recently developed a recipe for a Yule Log Cake for our 2014 Holiday Brochure. In my family, our holiday traditions revolved around cut-out cookies; a Yule Log was never part of the mix. So I was intrigued and did a little bit of research to see what this was all about. More ...
