Gluten Free coconut chocolate bread is one of the best uses of chocolate and flour next to a good decadent brownie. Chocolate bread satisfies longer than the brownie; therefore, I prefer it to brownies. This chocolate loaf is closer to a cake than a regular bread loaf. It can be served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, plain or with whipped cream. Since Pamela’s Bread Mix and Flour Blend is formulated for bread, it has more of a sweet bread texture. If you were to make this with wheat flour, I would recommend using pastry flour (light whole wheat). Pre-mixed flour contains a binder like guar or xanthan gum, so neither need be added for gluten free flour blends.
The past few chilly and wet days got me thinking of baking again. So I will be delivering and sharing a few goodies with my sisters over the next few days.
