Double Chocolate Cinnamon Loaf

31 Mar



I don’t usually post on Saturdays but I figured since I didn’t post on my regular days this week, I would share with you this chocolate loaf recipe to make up for my absence. It has been a crazy and hectic couple of days say the least.  I got a job and then quit all in a five day span.  I wish I didn’t have to type that out. This job was everything I wanted.  It was at a fabulous bakery and a highly respected one at that.  But my supervisor was super demeaning.  And that is something I don’t take lightly or put up with. There are jobs out there that don’t make you feel like gum on the bottom of someone’s shoe. So back to the job search I go.


PS. You should make this Double Chocolate Cinnamon Loaf as soon as possible. It will cure any chocolate craving and the warmth from the cinnamon puts it over the top. Enjoy!

Serves 12


  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup Dutch cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3/4 t baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chunks


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  •  1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 8 by 9 inch loaf pan and set aside.

Combine the dark brown sugar, cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the two eggs and the egg yolk until blended. Then add buttermilk, vegetable oil and the vanilla.

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and mix until blended.  Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle the topping all over and stick it back in the oven for the remaining 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.

    Sorry about the job. That’s definitely rough, but way to stand up for yourself. And, what a great chocolate cake (or loaf) to hold you over.
