Chocolate Bread

I tried this easy recipe for Almond Butter Bread recently and it was a bit dry for me and a little bland. However, I thought it would make a great fixer upper.

I picked up some MaraNatha Dark Chocolate Almond Spread and made another batch.

It is as good as any chocolate cake I’ve ever made. Not too sweet and moist enough to hold together.

Thanks to John & Miriam for sharing the original recipe with me.



I cook like my Great-Grandma Puttick; a pinch here, a bit there … and it comes together. I rarely write things down or get serious with measuring unless I am following a precise recipe – especially baking. Baking is a science, a formula, a known path to a destination. Cooking is wandering the woods. I cook with reckless abandon.

Michael tells people about my cooking and tries to explain the meals. The Italian Meatloaf, Fauxtato Soup, Chicken Lettuce Wraps and now … MEATZZA. He has been after me to put these things on the blog so he can just share the links. So here it is … the RECIPES category.

I am going to start taking pictures and posting recipes (both mine and others I’ve modified- with credit to original of course *grins*).

But be warned I am VERY particular about the food I eat — I have become a no good dirty goddamn hippy.
