Chocolate Bread

I like to keep a few cake mixes on hand so I always buy them when they are on sale...stocking up when they are the cheapest....the only BAD thing about that is, eventually they pile up and I have to use them before they go bad. Several weeks ago on "Facebook" I asked everyone to send me some of their favorite recipes for using boxed cake mixes. I got quite a few replies and have been trying them all out...there are some extremely tasty things that you can do with a simple cake mix and this happens to be one of them. This recipe is one that I found laying in a pile of "clipped" recipes from who know's where, but it's so simple and worth making any ol' time. My family loved this delicious chocolate (treat) bread and ate it so fast that I didn't even get to sample it...I'm going to take that as a good sign because it was a HIT with my crew.

Chocolate Bread
4 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 (3 oz) package INSTANT chocolate pudding mix
1 c. HOT water

Mix oil and eggs until whipped. Add cake mix, pudding mix and HOT water. Mix until smooth. Spray 2 loaf pans with pan coating. Pour batter into pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (toothpick test).

*Next time I am going to drizzle a powder sugar glaze over the top when bread is hot...only because I am sure it will add to its "deliciousness"...and this time I will MAKE SURE I GET a piece or two!



  1. So happy to find this recipe, We use to be able to by choc bread, then they quiet making it, it is also fabulious when toasted and slatthered with peanutbutter!!! Thanks for sharing !
