For the Brownie Bread:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, for extra chocolatey goodness)

For the Fudgey Topping:

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or fresh berries


Prepare the Brownie Bread:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour an 8×8-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set this dry mixture aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the melted unsalted butter and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined and smooth.
  4. Add the eggs and pure vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Beat until the mixture is creamy and fully incorporated.
  5. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. If desired, fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips to infuse the batter with extra chocolatey goodness.
  7. Pour the brownie bread batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.

Bake the Brownie Bread: 8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Remember that it’s a brownie bread, so it’s okay if it’s slightly gooey.

Prepare the Fudgey Topping: 9. While the brownie bread is baking, prepare the fudgey topping. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, heavy cream, unsalted butter, and a pinch of salt.

  1. Microwave in 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time, until the mixture is smooth and glossy. Be careful not to overheat.

Serve and Enjoy: 11. Once the brownie bread is out of the oven, drizzle the warm fudgey topping over it, allowing it to cascade down the sides.

  1. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  2. Serve your Hot Fudgey Brownie Bread warm, either on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or a handful of fresh berries.

Cook’s Notes:

  • You can customize your brownie bread by adding chopped nuts, caramel swirls, or white chocolate chips to the batter for extra texture and flavor.
  • If you prefer a gooier brownie bread, bake it for a slightly shorter time, keeping an eye on it as it bakes.
  • The fudgey topping is optional but highly recommended for an extra layer of indulgence.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two, or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.

 Hot Fudgey Brownie Bread is a dessert masterpiece that marries the beloved flavors of brownies and bread into one delightful treat. With its moist, fudgy interior and a luscious fudgey topping, it’s a decadent delight that satisfies the deepest chocolate cravings. So, indulge in the sheer bliss of this dessert creation, and savor each heavenly bite as it transports you to a world of chocolate-infused perfection.
