This is my second Daring Bakers' challenge, my first one was scones. This group is a great opportunity, like TWD, to bake once a month something new and different or something normal but that you enjoy. Besides you can always give the recipes a twist and you have different options to choose from.
The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lis stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.
I have to confess though, even if I knew I had to do this challenge a month ago I didn't really do it until Sunday morning. The good thing about a quick bread is that is really a quick thing to bake, you just have to pour in the ingredients and wait until everything is baked. Easy and delicious. I chose to do the basic recipe because I didn't want to go and buy the ingredients at the store and, instead of the suggested glaze, I added chocolate on top, because chocolate makes everything much better. ALWAYS.
The recipe is from Sara Schewe and you can see it here.
