chocolate cinnamon tea bread

chocolate cinnamon tea bread
well hello sunshine, so glad you could join us for tea. why don't you pull up a chair and stay awhile.
the sun did indeed decide to stay awhile, like throughout the entire photo shoot - it certainly was a welcome guest, i just wished i remembered my filter during instead of after the fact - so please excuse the lighting in the photos - there's a little extra character called sunshine in these shots.
with our tea we enjoyed this tasty little tea bread with chocolate and cinnamon.
you should make this bread and find your own little sunshine patch to share it with

a simple cinnamon spiked agave sweetened batter with a bit of coconut oil make for subtly sweet and wonderfully moist tea bread

chocolate chunks & cinnamon are combined with brown sugar, vegan butter, flour and a pinch of salt for a "crisp" esque topping

generously sprinkle the topping between the 3 loaves - if you don't have the mini 2 cup loaf pans pull out your normal loaf pan and bake up a big one!

when baked the topping is transformed into caramelized chocolaty goodness. this is the type of topping that makes you want to pick off pieces of the topping leaving the bread behind - but please, take my word the two are better together.

the mini loaf pans are great to bake up and give to the ones you love.
bake up 3 and give 2 away - my two went to my aunt Nance & my aunt Jud and her family.
the boys and my aunt and uncle gave the bread 2 thumbs up - they all LOVED it. that is coming from a 12 year old and a 10 year old- I'll take that review any day!

i really enjoyed this bread naked - the bread not me was naked.
use a really good cinnamon, my personal favorite as of late has been the Vietnamese cinnamon - so incredibly good. with excellent cinnamon and chunks of chocolate you really don't need to top this bread with anything, simply enjoy with a cup of tea.

so my friends, please take sometime this week for yourself to slow down and savor a slice of chocolate cinnamon tea bread with a cup of your favorite tea in the sunniest of spots you can possibly find.

    1. Thats why making them into minis was a lot safer for me (I lack self control over incredible baked goods!) i would have eaten the tops off of all of them!

  2. Chocolate and cinnamon is such a great combo. And I love that you cut down on the oil using soy yogurt/banana. Great idea!

  3. Wow, sounds incredible! The bread looks so moist, yet light and airy at the same time... I feel like I could eat an entire loaf and wonder where it went, haha! And no worries with the sunshine - you got great pics anyway. :)

  4. ahh..a girl after my own heart. i'm a lover of vietnamese cinnamon as well. this bread looks delicious and you reminded me that i need to get myself some mini loaf pans. for some reason it never occurred to me that baking goods in them would make magnificent gifts!

    i have to say, i am LOVING that the sun is back! it was such a nice change of pace to go for a run this morning and NOT have it raining! i was so joyous that i was singing at the top of my lungs half the time. luckily, i don't care what strangers think of me ;)

  8. I'm loving the sun lately. I started blogging last spring and I had no idea how hard winter would be! It felt impossible to get good pictures, but now I'm so happy to have the sun back. Although I'm finding spring sun is even more unpredictable because it's there and then it isn't! I think your pictures look great - and the bread looks delicious!

    1. Thanks Heidi! My biggest obstacle so far with Spring Sun has been how it moves right in my "photo" space at around 3pm and hangs out for a little while :)

  9. There is so much I love about this post: The colors in the photos, the "sunny" guest, the fact that you had to clarify that you were not naked while enjoying this coffee cake, and there's the cake itself! It looks so delicious and I'm sure that if it was made in our house, the extra loaves would not even have the chance to leave the house. Great recipe!

  11. One of my favourite things to do is enjoy tea and a snack, especially when the sun is pouring in! This bread looks absolutely perfect! Cinnamon has to be one of the most comforting, warming, delicious flavours around. Plus that crumble...can I eat a bowl for breakfast??
