For The Loaf:

For The Cream Cheese Spread:

  • 5 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • cup granulated sugar


For The Loaf:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9x5-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  • Combine the brown sugar, cocoa, flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low speed just to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and egg yolk to blend, then add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla; whisk until combined.
  • Turn the mixer to low and slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Stir in the chopped chocolate by hand using a rubber spatula. Give it all a good last stir, making sure to scrap up everything on the bottom and sides and mixing it in.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

To Make The Cream Cheese Spread:

  • Using a spoon, mix the cream cheese in a medium bowl until soft and fluffy. Add the peanut butter and stir to completely combine, then add the sugar and stir briskly, until incorporated.
  • Store the loaf wrapped tightly with plastic wrap at room temperature; store the cream cheese spread covered with plastic wrap (or in an airtight container) in the refrigerator
