Tuesday’s with Dorie: Cocoa-Nana Bread


Steph of Obsessed with Baking  chose this delicious recipe for TWD! This is my second week of baking with this fabulous group! I have had a chocolate bread once before and loved it! Well, now this is  my new favorite! The texture of this bread is fantastic and the recipe is easy! It does not fall apart. I think this is a great breakfast or snack bread. Once you bite into the bread, you get the cocoa flavor from the bread and the chocolate chips. But then, you get a burst of banana flavoring! This is a must try for anyone who has never tried chocolate bread!

If you would like to make this delicious recipe you can go to Baking: From My Home to Yours  by Dorie Greenspan or read Obsessed with Baking.

Chocolate Oatmeal Almost – Candy Bars


This weeks Tuesday’s With Dorie recipe was picked by Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm. I thank Lilliana for choosing this yummy recipe from the fabulous book; Baking, From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

I just joined Tuesday’s with Dorie a little over a week ago. I love to bake and cook and I have owned this book for a few years now. I have not had a chance to make all of the recipes so I am really excited to be a part of this group so I can get through them all!

I was away from my house all day today. I sent my family to get me a few of the ingredients that I needed so I could start baking once I got home.  I told my family about the recipe and they were really excited to taste them! My son Chase helped mix the ingredients while my daughter Dom helped chop the nuts. The 2 hours of cooling time just about killed them. I actually let them cool about 1 1/2 hours and put in the fridge for about 45 minutes. I cut one row strip off so they could try them, then the rest went back into the fridge. Thumbs up from everyone! I really liked the recipe. They didn’t seem to rich. I did omit the raisins since no one in my family likes raisins except for me.  I will definately be making more of this recipe for potlucks and parties. I think the recipe was fairly easy! I can’t wait for the next recipe!
