Chocolate-walnut loaves

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Unsifted all-purpose flour
5½ cup Sugar
2½ teaspoon Baking powder
¾ teaspoon Salt
1¾ cup Heavy cream
3 larges Eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
2 ounces Unsweetened chocolate
¼ cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
4 ounces Bittersweet chocolate; finely chopped
½ cup Walnuts; finely chopped
½ cup Boiling water

Preheat oven to 35oF. Grease two 81/2x41/2x25/8 in. loaf pans. Line bottom with waxed paper. Grease paper, dust with flour. In a saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate in ½ cup of the heavy cream. Cool 10 minutes. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, bajking powder, cocoa and salt. With electric mixer at low speed, beat well until blended. Add cream, eggs, vanilla and chocolate mixture. With mixer at low speed, beat just until dry ingredients are evenly moistened. With mixer at medium speed, beat just until batter is smooth, about 15 seconds. Stir bitter sweet chocolate, walnuts and the boiling water into batter until well blended. Divide batter equally between prepared pans. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack 10 minutes. Run knife around edges of loaves; turn out onto racks. Turn up right and let cool completely.
