Bake-a-thon 2014: Day 2
Bake of the Day: Chocolate Hazelnut Quick Bread
Smart phones are so convenient to take photos of just about anything we see anytime, anywhere. I browse through food magazines at the check out lanes and click photos of interesting recipes on my phone. Doctor's office is another place where I usually end up taking lot of recipe photos on the phone.

Today's quick bread recipe was one of those I clicked from Food Network magazine in a grocery store. I think there were abut 50 quick bread recipes, both sweet and savory, and they looked very interesting -- so I made sure I saved them.

This Chocolate-hazelnut bread is very moist and delicious. The chocolate-hazelnut glaze on the top makes it even more delicious. My son said it tasted like a cake and loved it a lot.

  • In a mixing bowl, combine flours, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until combined.
  • In another bowl, combine sour cream, oil and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50~60 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
