Chocolate Sour Cream Bread

This chocolate sour cream bread comes courtesy of  my favorite bear in the whole wide world! Winnie-the-Pooh Bear!  Who would of thought that silly old bear could remove his hand head from the hunny pot long enough to bake?! No less write a cookbook!? I’m glad because this is one of the most delicious breads to ever cross my lips.

The ‘chocolate’ is cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips with sour cream for a rich, tenderness that keeps it from drying out. It’s insanely fast and easy to throw together with scrumptious results.

Its great for snacking on any time of the day with a smear of peanut butter, nutella, butter, or even cream cheese. I imagine it would be wonderful with fresh berries and whipped cream

I made three mini-loaves instead of one standard loaf and imagine they would make perfect muffins too.

    Winnie's my favorite bear too. <3 Seriously. I had a Winnie umbrella when I was little, I still have a Winnie backpack (it looks like a stuffed Pooh Bear but you can put stuff inside and wear it on your back :D), I have a really big Rabbit stuffed toy with bendy ears and I have a lot of A. A. Milne's books. And if I haven't already gushed about how much I love your comment quote… *gush*And I am gushing over this cake, too. I have a lot of nonfat Greek yogurt to use up. Perfect! :) Also I love how much cocoa is in this haha. Do you think I could make this as one 8.5×4.5 loaf? I don't have mini loaf pans.
