    This Sourdough Chocolate Bread is incredible! I need to keep a second batch o f sourdough going just so I can make this often. I went by the recipe but did add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the recipe. It was so good my husband and I ate almost half a loaf while it was very warm. It was so good we couldn’t stop eating at one thick slice but went back for seconds. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!5 stars
