Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

Chocolate Loaf

  • 2 cups water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 box (16 ounces) chocolate bread mix, plus ingredients called for on box

Chocolate Ganache

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup (optional)


  • 9" x 5" Nonstick Loaf Pan
  • Stand or Hand Mixer
  • Deluxe Reversible Rack (bottom layer only)
  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    Add 2 cups water to the pot. Spray the nonstick loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    To make the loaf, add the loaf mix and the ingredients called for on the box. Prepare according to the box directions. Transfer batter to prepared pan.

  • Step 3

    Place the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position. Place the pan on top of the rack, then place the rack in the pot.

  • Step 4

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 320°F, and set time to 25 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 5

    While the loaf is baking, prepare the chocolate ganache. In a microwave-safe bowl, add dark chocolate chips and whipping cream. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 10 seconds. Whisk together until completely combined.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, check doneness by inserting a wooden toothpick into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, remove the pan and let cool for at least 1 hour. If the toothpick comes out with moist crumbs stuck to it, continue to bake until the toothpick comes out clean.

  • Step 7

    When the loaf is cooled, top with chocolate ganache.
