At this point I was doing well. I had successfully mixed, but not over mixed, the dry and wet ingredients. I also got everything into the loaf pan with out a major spill. I was happy. After being in the oven for the required time and letting stand for the 10 min here it is.
The smell from the kitchen was intoxicating. One of the hardest things I have done lately was to let this sit for 10 minutes after it came out. As excited as I was, Byrd was drooling. She started to get a little angry that I had to take pictures before we cut into the loaf of heaven.
For some reason all of the chocolate chips fell to the bottom. So here it is upside down.
This was delicious. As directed we ate it warm with lots of butter. I can't wait to have this again tomorrow morning with my coffee. I am glad I tried something new. I will definitely make this again, but I will follow all the directions. Lesson learned, follow all directions when it comes to baking.
