Chocolate Chunk Soda Bread
2 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate OR
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
Crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside, this not-too-sweet bread is fabulous when sliced, toasted and slathered with butter or strawberry cream cheese. It also makes wonderful French toast!
2. Place dough on floured board and knead for 2 minutes or until smooth, using additional flour as needed. Shape dough into a 6-inch round and place on prepared baking sheet; let rest for 10 minutes.
3. With a sharp knife, slash a cross on the top of the loaf. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
