How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 3 (5 3/4x3-inch) mini loaf pans; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine water and baking chocolate in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add chocolate mixture and sour cream. Continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining bread ingredients; beat at low speed until mixture is smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Spoon batter evenly into prepared loaf pans. Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine all glaze ingredients except milk in bowl. Beat at medium speed, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Spread glaze over cooled bread.

Tip #1

- If you are using dark nonstick pans, do not use no-stick cooking spray. Grease bottom only of pans.

Tip #2

- To make 1 (9x5-inch) loaf, prepare bread as directed. Bake at 350°F. 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Tip #3

- To make ahead, prepare as directed. Do not glaze bread. After cooling, wrap bread tightly in plastic food wrap. Place in resealable plastic freezer bag for up to 2 months. Thaw wrapped at room temperature. Glaze just before serving.
