More like a chocolate gingerbread without the ginger, this incredibly light bread is perfect topped with stewed fresh or frozen peaches or apples.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; let cool. Whisk in eggs.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve with warm Stewed Yard Peaches.

Great points for originality! But the flavors of the molasses, cocoa and peaches were not the most winning combination ever.
