Martha Mondays: Choc Marble Quick BreadPosted by in Food | Martha Mondays
Today’s Martha Mondays is Chocolate Marble Quick Bread with Ganache. Well, this one sounded really good. Thanks to Megan at Megan’s Cookin’ for the pick.
I must confess to a tiny goof on this recipe! I used only 3 oz of chocolate in the bread instead of 5. I just read the recipe wrong. It came out looking gorgeous. It tasted good and the ganache was yummy. But I would rather have real chocolate cake than quick bread any day think. If I wasn’t trying to lose weight, I could see having this with a cup of tea in the afternoon and it would be lovely, but if I have to pick and choose my calories, I’ll pick cake – or ice cream – or pie – or cookies over this I think. I’m not a fan of the texture of it somehow – too grainy or not quite moist enough. Maybe I’m just craving cake! Anyway, it was good and very pretty. What did everyone else think?

Yours looks really good. I wish that I had left out some of the chocolate as I found it to be too chocolatey! It is really good if you warm it up and have it with some cream as I found out yesterday!

I wasn’t able to make this as I’ve been busy with a Benefit Garage Sale – we raised $1000 for our local library and Big Brothers/Big Sisters! The recipe looked so simple but after reading your reviews and those from Martha’s site, it didn’t look very appealing so glad I didn’t make it ;o)
I thought the same thing. I’d rather have my chocolate in brownie form. But this recipe was fun to try. Here are my results:
Your does look beautiful. I haven’t made mine yet, I can’t believe how much butter it calls for!
I used to buy a variant of this bread in France, at a store, and it never occurred to me that I might make it. Duh! Thanks Martha. Marthaandme, you may not have liked it, but Chocolate Marble Quick Bread – and don’t ask me what it was called in French, because I can’t remember – sounds perfect for my Monday treat.
Congrats on that great fundraiser!
It is a LOT of butter and cream and chocolate.
I’m kicking myself for picking such a fattening recipe but thanks for baking with me. It was a lot of butter. Might as well call it a half pound cake. hehe
Yours look delicious and I bet it would be good with a cup of tea!
I’m glad I got to try it.
I really liked it, I liked the heavy sweet texture with the light icing. Thanks for the treat!
Glad you enjoyed it!
I finally posted my results. I am proud of myself for eating just one piece and sending the rest to my husband’s work 🙂 http://sassysuppers.blogspot.com/2010/03/martha-monday-chocolate-marble-bread.html
I try to do that whenever possible too! I’ve got to get it out of the house!
