Buttermilk Chocolate Bread Recipe

I serve this rich cake-like bread and its creamy chocolate honey butter often at Christmastime. It makes a great brunch item, but it also goes well on a dinner buffet. This recipe won me a "Best in Category" award in a local cooking contest. -Patrice Bruwer-Miller, Wyoming, Michigan
