Amish Friendship Chocolate Bread Recipe
This is a great variation to the traditional Amish Friendship Bread. My family says it's like eating chocolate cake. This bread freezes well and makes a great gift.
I used half applesauce and half oil instead of all oil. I split the batter in half. Then in one batter I added Andes Candy mint chocolate bars crushed up about 1/2 cup of the candy. If you can find andes candy mint chips that works well also. In the other batter I added 2 tblsps. of chunky peanut butter and 1/2 cup of Reeses peanut butter chips. The breads came out wonderful and both tasted great!
I made this recipe as was written and was disappointed. I thought the flavor was lackluster for what had the texture of a chocolate cake. Next time, I'll just make chocolate cake...
I am a chocolate fanatic but was not overly thrilled with this recipe.It's not bad at all but not as chocolatey as I envisioned.Might try again and add chocolate chips.
Great recipe! I made this in a bundt pan as other reviewers have mentioned. It was fantastic, almost like a cake! I didn't have enough vegetable oil, so I used 3/4 c vegetable and 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil. It was very moist and dense. I also just used 1 large box of chocolate fudge pudding instead of 2 smaller ones. I will definitely be making this again.
This was my 1st experience w/ the Friendship Bread starter and this is a great recipe. Not quite chocolaty enough for me so will add cocoa next time. I did add craisins & chocolate chips and they were nicely distributed through out instead of sinking to the bottom. Overall 4.5 ****
yep...the bottom 1/3 of my bread turned green. i used chocolate fudge pudding that i bought the day before and used NO metal of any kind. can anyone tell me what happened. i mixed it well but gently. but it was great anyway!!
