Tuesdays At The Table - Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl Bread

Hi Ladies! A few of you have been asking for pictures as I prepare recipes. And you're right, a good host would provide a picture when possible. It isn't going to happen this week...but I promise I'll try and do better, OK?

Please swing by and visit Andrea. She and I have a little announcement, and she gets to do the honors. :-)

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

I tasted this for the first time over the weekend and haven't made it myself - but I can assure you that it is delicious!

Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream

1/3 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Slowly add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt as well as the sour cream.

Pour half of the batter into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Combine the topping ingredients; sprinkle two thirds over the batter. Pour in the remaining batter, then top with remaining topping. Press topping down lightly.

Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire cooling rack.
