Triple Chocolate Buttermilk Bread


I’ve never been so excited to talk about bread.

But this triple chocolate buttermilk bread just makes this Wednesday in April better and it’s from the queen bee of bread Stephanie from Girl Versus Dough in her new eCookbook ‘Quick Bread Love’.


As most know I’m a huge fan of Stephanie’s and have been commenting and pinning her recipes like a madwoman since I first discovered her blog. She’s been a huge inspiration for this little space of the web I’m trying to make my own and I’m forever grateful for it. If you’re a baker or general food blog follower and you’re not subscribing to her blog, you’re losing right now. Stop losing and subscribe.

When I found out she had an eCookbook coming out I did a muffled gasp of glee at my desk I was so excited. Now that it’s here I can’t stop looking at all of the pretty photos that has the same great kind of recipes and “oooh” worthy photos you’d see on her site with her spunk encompassed in it. There are 31 recipes inside and I’m excited to make a slew of breads and muffins in the months ahead (even during the summer).


The moment I saw this chocolate bread I immediately knew this was my first recipe on the to-make-docket. This bread takes just minutes to prepare and while it’s bread, tastes a little bit like cake too. Not to mention there’s a mess of chocolate all up in it. I will also say it was fun to hunt for buttermilk in SafeWay (in my defense it was hidden in the milk aisle). But for this bread it was worth it.

      You definitely can’t go wrong! Though there’s a debate in the office right now on whether this is cake or bread! They don’t believe me when I say it’s really bread! :)

    Whenever I hear triple chocolate and bread (I’m German), I cannot help but stop and have a look. It sounds amazing, and bread is healthy, right? ;)

      There was a debate in the office on if it was cake or bread but I held fast that it was bread! :) You could totally put some brie or strawberries between two slices and grill it (new idea).

  • This buttermilk bread looks right up my street! So delicious and I bet it was hard to stop at just one slice! :)

      It was! I took it to work because I KNEW if left alone with me I would’ve eaten the loaf on my own! Thanks so much for visiting and reading! :)

    Marissa, I have just discovered your blog this morning… and love everything about it! In My Yellow Cardigan… such a cool name! And this bread! Oh my! Thanks for introducing me to Girl Versus Dough. I’m relatively new to the blogging world myself, am constantly searching for inspiration, and looking to learn from the best out there. Wishing you all the best from across the Potomac (in Virginia)
