Mexican Mini Double Chocolate Loaves with Chocolate Glaze
A doubly decadent treat, these Mini Double Chocolate Loaves with Chocolate Glaze are perfect for snacktime, dessert, or even breakfast.
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
- 1/3 cup Mexican cacao powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1.5 ounces (approximately 1/4 cup) chocolate baking morsels, finely chopped*
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon dutched cocoa powder (may also use double-dutched)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 12 tin mini loaf pan with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, cream together butter, sugar, and Mexican vanilla until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add Mexican cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Blend until incorporated. Mixture will seem a little lumpy, like coarse sand, but it will smooth out as you add rest of ingredients.
Add eggs, one at a time, until incorporated, making sure to scrape sides to incorporate all batter. Add flour and milk, alternating little by little to incorporate, and ending with the last of the flour. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate baking morsels.
Fill prepared tins ⅔ full. Cook for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes in pan, and then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
For the glaze, mix together powdered sugar and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Add milk (starting with the lesser amount) and vanilla extract and stir until incorporated. If desired, thin icing with additional milk until you reach the desired consistency. Pour glaze over cooled loaves.
*Note: Chocolate baking morsels/chips work better than regular chocolate in this recipe because they have special additives that help them to resolidify after the bread cools. If using regular chocolate, it will simply just melt into the batter, so it is not recommended in this case. If using normal size, chopping works best to help them distribute more evenly. You may also use mini chips.
