Ingredients

Bread

1/2 cup
water
2 (1-ounce) squares
bittersweet or semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2
large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1 teaspoon
vanilla
1/2 cup
sour cream
1 tablespoon
red food color
1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
salt

Glaze

1 cup
powdered sugar
1 tablespoon
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon
vanilla
4 to 5 teaspoons
milk

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 3 (5 3/4x3-inch) mini loaf pans; set aside.
  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. Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add chocolate mixture, sour cream and red food color. Continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining bread ingredients; beat at low speed until mixture is smooth.
  4. Spoon batter evenly into prepared loaf pans. Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  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.

Recipe Tips

- To make ahead, do not glaze bread. After cooling, wrap bread tightly in plastic food wrap. Place in resealable plastic freezer bag; freeze up to 2 months. Thaw at room temperature. Glaze just before serving.

- If you are using glass or dark pans, reduce oven temperature by 25°F. Check for doneness at minimum bake time.

My daughter loves having muffins or quick bread for breakfast, so I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try. Made this recipe as 1 big loaf (I don't have mini loaf pans) and it turned out great. Great flavor and very moist.
