1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
3-oz. semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease two 9x5-in. loaf pans.
Toast walnuts on a baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes or until fragrant. Cool.
Melt chocolate by microwaving on MEDIUM for 25-second intervals, stirring in
between, until smooth. Cool.
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in cooled chocolate.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir buttermilk and vanilla
extract together. Add flour and buttermilk alternately to chocolate mixture.
Stir in walnuts. Divide batter between the two prepared pans.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a knife or wooden pick inserted in the
center comes out clean. Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans
