chocolate sour cherry bread



from la brea bakery. it's a dense, deep and earthy loaf with chunks of chocolate and sour cherries throughout. it used to be more savoury, but in recent years has become something more like a quick bread with some heft. not that it's a bad thing. it is, however, a bad thing when you consume three-quarters of a loaf in one sitting. not that i did. this time.

Hi Santos,

Oooh. Chocolate cherry bread. Sounds yummy! How big was the loaf? If I wasn't paying attention, I could probably eat the whole thing while watching a video. I love bread... =P

hi reid

it's one of the smaller loaves the bakery makes, about six inches in diameter, but it's quite dense. you can easily scarf at least a quarter of it, but you'll begin to feel it after awhile. heavy!

oh! i was so certain you'd get that! oh well, another thing to look forward to, i suppose. my friend steve says he makes a very good version of this, i'll ask him for his recipe and we can experiment.
