Chocolate Buttermilk Quick Bread #BreadBakers

Chocolate Buttermilk Bread
Chocolate Buttermilk Quick Bread iced or not will become your new favorite chocolaty treat! That’s a big claim considering this post is packed with delicious chocolate inspired breads!
March #BreadBakers is all about a double dose of comfort. You guessed it, bread AND chocolate!

There are times I seek out comfort food. Toast spread with chocolate works.

But chocolate IN the bread, well that is ultimate comfort, right?

So how could I pass on the Bread Bakers challenge for March? Use cacao, cocoa or carob in any form – powder or chocolate, as a filling, topping or in the dough!

Easy Chocolate Buttermilk Quick Bread blends the richness of buttermilk with dark cocoa for a satisfying chocolate experience. Drizzle glaze over top and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Guilty pleasure for sure!
