Chocolate quick bread

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 ounces Unsweetened chocolate
⅓ cup Sweet butter
2 Eggs
⅓ cup Honey
1 cup Warm mashed potatoes (in a pinch, use instant)
¼ cup Rum, brandy or orange juice
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Grated orange peel
1½ cup Unbleached white flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt

Makes one loaf.

Preheat oven to 350F. Melt the chocolate and butter together. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs until light and thick. Beat in the honey, potatoes, chocolate and butter, rum, vanilla and orange peel.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine with liquid ingredients and fold together, until just mixed. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake 50 to 55 minutes or until the top feels springy. Let it sit in its pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a rack.

For a sweeter chocolate bread, use 2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate and ½ cup honey.
