Chocolate buttermilk bread – a cross between quick bread and cake, with a tangy buttermilk taste and slightly chocolate-y and sweet


  • 1 1/2 cup (180 grams) all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (60 grams) cocoa powder
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup sugar in the raw
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  1. Heat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9×5″ loaf pan. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl lightly beat the egg. Add the buttermilk, yogurt and melted butter and stir to combine.
  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Leave to cool slightly in the loaf pan before removing it.
  7. Cool completely before slicing it. Enjoy!
