How to Make Chocolate Chip Coffee Bread

Set your oven to 350 degrees.

Turn off the mixer and put in the flour, baking powder, and salt and turn on low and combine.

Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the mixing bowl. Take the bowl off the mixer and add in the chocolate chips and use the spatula to fold in.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and put into the oven for 45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean from the middle. Be sure to check the loaf after 35 minutes with the toothpick and continue to do this after every 5 minutes until it’s completely done.

Place on a wire rack when finished to cool thoroughly.

Make the Frosting:

Add the butter into a mixing bowl and whip with the whisk attachment to beat until light and fluffy.

Pour in the condensed milk and blend until completely combined.

Pour in 1 teaspoon of HOT water into the instant coffee until it forms a paste-like texture.

What Other Mixins Can I Add to This Bread?

This Cappuccino Bread is delicious just the way it is made. All the ingredients and frosting fit so well together that you don’t need any mix-ins at all. You can however add whatever extra things you want if you already gave the bread a try first. You can add in caramel or other forms of chocolate or softer nut add-ins.

Tips for Freezing Homemade Chocolate Chip Loaf

There are a few tips for freezing your Homemade bread. If you have already sliced all of your bread that is alright because storing the bread is very simple. You will want to first start off by tightly wrapping your bread in plastic wrap. After you have wrapped it, you will then get a big enough sheet of aluminum foil to wrap the bread again. Doing this will help with keeping your bread fresher when thawing out and reusing.
