Hot Cocoa Bread

Nov
4


This is a bread I made up for Morgan because she loves hot cocoa so much. As soon as the first cold day hits, she is pulling out the hot cocoa and piling on the marshmallows. She is a hot cocoa lover, and has been since she was a little girl and it snowed one time for like five minutes in Texas. I ran and woke all the kids up so they could witness the event then gave them all hot cocoa. By the time they drank it, the snow had melted and it was 100 degrees again. (I’m exaggerating. But only slightly.)


I love this series of pictures of Morgan from last winter.

Notice the gigantic mug of hot cocoa.

But why must hot cocoa only be in a mug? She can have hot cocoa bread, too. And so can you!

How to make Hot Cocoa Bread:

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini marshmallows

Combine cream cheese, butter, and sugar. Cream with a mixer. Add egg and vanilla. Mix again. Add the cocoa powder and about 1/2 cup of the buttermilk; mix well. Add all the remaining ingredients (except the marshmallows) and stir to combine. Stir in the marshmallows.

(If you don’t have mini marshmallows, you can cut up big marshmallows.) Spoon into a greased loaf pan. This makes a large loaf–use your largest loaf pan.

Bake at 350-degrees for one hour.

Makes one delicious hot chocolaty loaf! Goes good with a cup of hot cocoa.

*Try these in mini-loaves for holiday gift-giving! (How long it would take to bake would depend on your mini-loaf pan size. Probably 20-30 minutes.)

    Mmm, looks good! You know, you can make marshmallows yourself! I saw a recipe here:
    http://svenska.yle.fi/matochfritid/matartikel.php?id=11
    I’m afraid it is in Swedish, though.

    I have to see if I can find a similar recipe in English.

    That DOES look YUMMY!!

    Funny thing, though, since becoming “adult,” I still LOVE hot cocoa, but prefer topping it with whipped cream. Hmmm.

    Hmmm……..since becoming an adult I prefer my hot cocoa with kahlua. ;) Perhaps I should try that in the bread too….

    Okay so, I am bit lazy and don’t want to go to the store. So I made some ricotta and seeing how that works, I will come and update when it is done!

    ( I also may have stolen the marshmellow packets out of the box of cocoa mother in law bought the kids………))

    I will definitely make this one once it cools down a little bit. With 86 degrees outside (CA) I am not really in the mood for hot chocolate right now. But it looks so yummy, I might change my mind and bake it for the weekend. It is supposed to cool down a bit anyway. Reason enough to try it out, I think …. :sun:

    My goodness, that looks good…. it’s a definite on my list of items for the bake sale table at the church fair next month. How could anyone resist such a thing!!
    Thanks you for sharing the recipe!

    The real question and test is did Morgan love it as much as the hot cocoa?

    Oh my that does look good. Can’t help but notice its a cousin of Irish soda bread with the baking soda and butter milk for the rise. Have you considered making it with with soft cake flour instead of AP flour. It should work very well. BTW if you can make buttermilk biscuits with cake flour you have all the basics to make soda bread and scones too. Its all in how you cut the dough. Thanks for the amazing recipe.

    Made this tonight and served it a la mode with our homemade ‘Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream’ from our BEST Jersey cow! I must say, it was a HIT!

    That’s a lot of cocoa it must truly have a hot cocoa flavor..and must make a huge loaf….sounds great…
    Would black walnuts ruin the flavor…do you think?

    Made this tonight but I’m wondering why my marshmallows melted completely and yours didn’t? It tastes good still but I was hoping for some yummy warm marshmallows in there.

    Tannis, some of mine melted, but most didn’t. I’m curious to try it in muffins and mini loaves because I think it’s the long bake that makes some of them melt.

    I made this today, and loved it! I baked it in mini loafs, and my marshmallows melted too. I think this would turn out great as a cake. Add some graham crackers, and you could have a smores cake.

    Me and my two youngest (2 and 4) made this today! My 4 year old daughter is a hot chocolate addict, so I thought this would be fun for her. Turned out great, our mini-marshmallows melted though, and I didn’t have buttermilk, so I used lemon juice+milk.

    I bet this would be adorable baked in big oversized mugs. My loaf pan didn’t quite hold all the batter, so I used a couple small round baking dishes/ramekins and just took those ones out earlier than the loaf pan – they turned out fine!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    This looks REALLY yummy! I have never seen a chocolate bread but I sure want to try this one!

    So Husband and I decided to make a “hot cocoa” basket for christmas gifts. a Jar of this bread if I can manage it, and I am going to find a nice homemade cocoa powder too.

    I will be experimenting though. I use buttermilk powder, which I reconstituted for this recipe, but to try it for the can, I am going to just add the powder, and then add plain water and see how it works out.

    Made this today and LOVE it!!! I made the mini loaves. Cooked it for 25 minutes and the toothpick came out clean. My only problem is that the centers collapsed while cooling. Did I do something wrong or do you know what I can do different to keep them from collapsing?? Thanks Suzanne. BTW I LOVE your blog. I read it daily (sometimes more then once) also my 12 yr old daughter loves to hear the clover stories and your other posts. Thank you!!!!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
