Indulgent Chocolate-Cherry Quick Bread

Bring baking with Bisquick® to the next level with this ultra-decadent chocolate cherry quick bread.

Sometimes when I’m looking to wow crowd with an impressively indulgent dessert or breakfast, I choose to whip up a rich and ultra-decadent quick bread.

This Indulgent Chocolate-Cherry Quick Bread is the latest example of a decadent treat to come out of my kitchen. Let me tell you, a rich and chocolaty Bisquick bread batter, mixed with roasted cherries and cream cheese, then topped with a chocolate oat streusel, is a whole lot of goodness in one bread.

To get started, gather your ingredients for the bread. You’ll want to make sure you roast the cherries ahead of time so they’re fully cooled before you add them to the bread. This process is simple: Just toss cherries in sugar and bake them in the oven for a few minutes until they burst. Let them cool, then add them to the bread.


Stir all the ingredients for the bread in a bowl, then fold in the roasted cherries.


In a small bowl, make the oat streusel. I added a bit of cocoa powder to the streusel for extra chocolate flavor.


Pour the batter into a loaf pan, then top evenly with the streusel. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 hour.


Cool the bread in the pan for a few minutes, then carefully remove it and transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely. Sprinkle the loaf with powdered sugar, if you want, just before serving. One bite and you’ll love this over-the-top treat!
