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.
