Cinnamon and Dutch chocolate pair for an extremely rich, indulgent flavor. The texture of this chocolate-cinnamon bread is very similar to pound cake.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper.

  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together into a bowl. Whisk buttermilk, water, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl.

  • Combine butter and sugar in a third, large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until egg is completely incorporated. Add flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with buttermilk mixture, beating batter briefly after each addition until just blended. Divide batter evenly between the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool completely.

12.22.19 Couldn t taste much cinnamon but the chocolate is the star. Baked in mini loaf pans for about 35 minutes to give as Christmas gifts. Texture is more like a cake rather than quick bread but that s OK with me because it s delicious. It s tasty chocolatey and tender and I wouldn t change a thing. As a side note I think this would be good with some chopped walnuts added and a dusting of confectioners sugar. Thanks for sharing this is a keeper. Read More

I halved the recipe since it's only 2 of us here and we loved it! It was so moist, definitely more like a cake than bread. This one's a keeper. Read More

This is my second try, first I did not care for. I only had dark Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder and it was too strong. This time I mixed ½ c of the dark cocoa and ½ c of Hershey's unsweetened coca (red). Mixed butter and sugar in stand mixer and blended til light. All the dry items I hand whisked into a separate bowl. The Buttermilk, vanilla (homemade) and water in another bowl whisked slightly by hand. Adding the eggs as directed into sugar/butter, mixing til blended in stand mixer then continuing with the wet and dry alternately. Mixed as little as possible once I started adding the flour mixture. My end result was a batter the consistency, texture and color of a brownie mix. I truly think the stand mixer made a lot of difference. Most pans (I use varied sizes) took 30 min (small) or more to bake. The largest 60. I don't usually bake in conventional loaf pans; this batter is quite a large yield. Doing one pan with walnuts. Is very tasty recipe! Will dust with powered sugar to serve after a soup, salad & bread dinner tonight! Thanks for your recipe. Read More

This was delicious. I stuck to the 2-loaf recipe, but used half the sugar, as I prefer my baked good a bit less sweet. But the kids and I had it with a scoop of ice cream. Read More
