Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never make bread in bread pans. I never make bread in bread pans. It tends to burn before the middle is done. I made recipe substituting dried cherries for dried cranberries and chocolate chips for nuts. I baked in a 9 x 13 pan for 40 minutes. If you frost it is a very moist chocolate cake. I left unfrosted for breakfast snack cake. I agree with other cook that it does need a stronger chocolate flavor, still good though!
