Double Chocolate Bread in a Can:

2 cups flour                            

2 eggs     

4 tablespoons butter, cut into chunks  

3/4 cup granulated sugar         

1/2 cup brown sugar   

1/2 cup (3 oz.) dark chocolate morsels                                                       

1/2 cup oil                              

1/4 cup milk                                       

1/4 cup cocoa powder                       

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract   

1 tsp. baking soda    

1/2 tsp. baking powder                        

1/2 tsp. salt                                                                                                      

4 (15 oz). cans with labels removed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Generously grease cans with cooking spray. Set aside.

Place butter and dark chocolate in a medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on full power for 30 seconds. Stir. If mixture is not completely melted, microwave an additional 15 seconds and stir. Allow to come to room temperature.

In a large bowl, beat sugars, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. Add melted butter and chocolate. Beat until well incorporated, about a minute.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Blend well with a wire whisk. Stir into wet ingredients until well blended.

Fill cans halfway with batter. Place on a baking sheet and bake on the lower half of the oven for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick/skewer comes out with a few sticky crumbs. Do not overbake. A dry toothpick indicates overbaking.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.  Run a knife around the inside of the can before unfolding.
