(I made a lower fat version, as noted in parentheses)
CHOCOLATE CRANBERRY BREAD
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used 1/4 tsp)
3/4 cup sour cream (I used 3/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp nonfat plain yogurt)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons butter, softened (I used 5 Tbsp)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I used 1 tsp)
1 cup fresh OR frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped
2 bars (1.5 ounces each) Godiva Dark Chocolate, coarsely chopped (or 3 oz. good quality semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped) (I used 1-2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips)
Mascarpone cheese or cream cheese for serving (optional) (I omitted this)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. (325 F for dark pans). Butter bottom and sides of 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Stir together sour cream and cocoa in a small bowl until blended.
3. Beat butter in mixing bowl until creamy, using electric mixer at medium speed. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and sour cream mixture, mixing just until combined. Stir in cranberries and chopped chocolate. Turn batter into prepared loaf pan..
4. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove pan and cool completely on wire rack
To serve: Slice bread and serve with mascarpone or cream cheese.
A balanced diet is equal parts of milk and dark chocolate.

- Hey Ang, have you ever made your French yogurt cake in a loaf pan? - Sandi in Hawaii - 3:55am on 07/29/07
- I have to bake it longer, at a bit lower temp to bake evenly in a loaf pan. It is by nature coarser - AngAk - 7:02pm on 07/30/07
