This chocolaty loaf is a bit lighter than pound cake. It's great with a glass of milk, but the swirls and ganache make it fancy enough to offer with dessert wine.

    I've made this several times and everybody loves it. The only variable is sometimes i change the type of chocolate i use. I buy the chips not blocks and melt them down, it makes a difference in the flavor. I've used semi-sweet, milk, and dark chocolate and each tasted. if you are aiming for sweet don't use bitter chocolate, the sugar doesn't combat that enough.

    I would like to make this recipe; but you do mention when you melt the chocolate if it should be cold or it does not matter. Also need to know if bitter chocolate does make a different for this cake. Please adv

    This just didn't turn out right. It came out too floury and not sweet. Not a repeat recipe.

    I made this for a holiday gathering and everyone loved it. I Will be making it again for SuperBowl Sunday. Ganache was a little runny but was still delicious. bj

    When and how do you put the coin in the bread? The recipe looks great, but I was expecting the instructions to include the 'lucky coin' info.
