Delicious! I made it a bit healthier by omiting the chips using applesauce instead of oil replacing 2 c. of AP flour with Whole Wheat Flour and using honey in place of sugar. The flavor was excellent...very chocolatey and sweet. Will make it again. Read More

I've been making this recipe for a couple of years and it's become a family favorite! I make it as written with the only exception being that I add the chocolate chips to the dry mix so they won't sink. Great recipe!!! Read More

Excellent as is! Family co-workers neighbors and college students devoured it. Cinnamon sounds like a lot but was just right. Using mini-chocolate chips can be baked for 45 min. in five small loaf pans frozen in quart sized freezer bags. Tastes great slightly warmed in microwave. Read More

I made 24 muffins instead of two loaves and they baked up in 20 minutes. I liked the recipe overall but I think it could use a little more cocoa powder in them next time. Coat the chocolate chips with about 1TBPS of the dry mix before adding it to the batter and they will not sink. Read More

I baked this in a Bundt Pan so it took less time like 45 minutes. I also dusted powdered sugar on top when it was cool and I took it to work. Everyone loved it, it was all gone within 30 minutes. This is a very moist and tasty dessert. Read More

Very yummy. I made this with dark chocolate cocoa, 1.5 cups sugar, and a 1/2 c applesauce and a 1/2 c oil. I didn't even get to eat more than a piece or two, it was gone too fast! Read More
