A chocolate lover’s fantasy come true.
The best Belgian and French chocolate, plus dozens of dried Michigan cherries, baked into a dense, delicious loaf. If you give it a few minutes in the oven the chocolate chunks will begin melting. The aroma of cocoa will fill the air. You'll take the loaf out, add a hint of sweet butter or, feeling generous, set a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
At this point the sun will break through the clouds, and angels will start to sing. Hold on to your heart. This is heady stuff.
"The Zingerman's Bakehouse makes a chocolate cherry bread that can be used as the base of the best French toast you've ever had in your life."
Ed Levine, Serious Eats
"I got chocolate cherry bread: with that hard crust, and the faint sourness that is contrasted by the sweet soft cherries and the chocolate chips as big as my thumbnails... I took the bread, I toasted it and slathered it with butter, and crunched at the crisp crust and moaned over the chocolate chips, and dabbed the buttery crumbs up with my forefingers, and had another piece."
