This is my favorite recipe of loaf bread. It has a wonderful taste. Give it a try!:):)

Chocolate glazed loaf bread


  • A) 3/4 cup butter (200g)
  • 1 and 3/4 cup sugar (400g)
  • 3 and 1/2 tablespoons cocoa (50g)
  • 3/4 cup milk (200g)
  • B) 1 and 1/2 cup flour (350g)

  • 3 eggs, separated, beat the egg whites stiff
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • a few drops of lemon juice


  1. Take all the ingredients from A) and put them in a sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Let it cool.( In a separate bowl put 7 tablespoons from this mixture. You’ll use this for the glaze.)
  2. Stir in the main mixture the egg yolks, then add little at a time the flour and the stiff egg whites. Incorporate the baking powder in which you added a few drops of lemon juice. Transfer the mixture into floured pan or pans if you want to make 2 and put in the hot oven for about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the glaze and pour over the warm loaf bread.

While reading through the recipesI noticed 1 tablespoon of baking powder for 1 1/2 cups flour.  The maximum that amount of flour should take is 1 1/2 teaspoons based on 1 teaspoon baking powder per cup of flour.

The bigger problem is the 350 grams of flour stated after the 1 1/2 cup.  350 grams of flour equals 2 1/2 cups based on the standard 140 grams per cup of all purpose flour.
