This Chocolate Chips Hazelnut Bread is not only moist, tender and loaded with flavors but also super easy and fast to bake.

This post is sponsored by Florida Crystals®, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make One Sarcastic Baker possible.

You guys! I am so excited about this recipe for a few great reasons. The first obvious one is that this bread is loaded with chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts which makes it SO delicious.

Seriously, every bite is a mouthful of soft and tender cake packed with some crunchy hazelnuts that pair so well with the chocolate chips.

Another reason is that this is a “no mixer” recipe. The only thing we need to do is dirty up 2 bowls and a large spoon.

And, I used 3 types of Florida Crystals ® sugars. My favorite part about Florida Crystals® is that it is grown and crafted in Florida and it is 100% a product of the U.S. Not only that, the brand’s philosophy is non-GMO/all organic, which naturally leads to more sustainable practices. That means they are using everything at their disposal to be more efficient and eco-friendly every step of the way. It starts with getting the most out of every stalk of sugarcane; which not only contains the sugar for the products they make but also brings the water needed for the process and the natural fiber required to create the clean energy to power their mill. And, I love the fact that they built “homes” for barn owls as a natural solution to control pests.

Ingredients in this chocolate chips hazelnut bread:

  • AP Flour
  • Baking powder and baking soda
  • Cinnamon and Nutmeg
  • Florida Crystals® Organic Powdered Raw Cane & Florida Crystals® Organic Brown Raw Cane. I like the combination of the two types of sugar. The brown sugar adds extra moistness to the cake without making it too dense.
  • Mini Chocolate chips are the best way to make sure the chocolate chips will not sink to the bottom of the bread. Also, the chocolate chips are evenly distributed.
  • Chopped Hazelnut, I chopped the hazelnut using a large kitchen knife to the size of the chocolate chips. This way I get a crunchy hazelnut in every bite.
  • Buttermilk is an acidic ingredient that when interacts with the baking powder and baking soda creates a moist and tender bread.
  • Vegetable oil to keep the cake light and tender.

Ingredients for the Glaze:


TWO BOWLS, Place dry ingredients in one large bowl, mix wet ingredients in a medium bowl and mix it all together with the oil.

9″ LOAF PAN, I like to grease the pan with softened butter and in addition line a parchment paper to make sure the cake will come out easily.

How to Store the bread:

The bread is best when stored at room temperature for up to 3 days. Also in the refrigerator covered up to one week. Or in the freezer for up to 2 months. It is best eaten when at room temperature.

Now Let’s Talk More Details About This Chocolate Chips Hazelnut Bread

  • Please make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Otherwise, the bread might be dense.
  • It is very important not to over mix the batter. Mix just to incorporate the ingredients, few lumps are ok.
  • I added nutmeg for extra flavor. However, if you are not a fan feel free to skip it.
  • For a nondairy option, replace buttermilk with apple sauce and in addition use dairy-free chocolate chips.
  • When making the icing, start with 2 tsp of milk and mix. Add a tsp at a time until achieving your desired consistency. 
  • Please note, the icing recipe will be enough to cover the bread. But if you chose to drizzle the bread feel free to cut the recipe in half.

    This was delicious! I added more spices – cardamom and nutmeg – and I skipped the icing because it is already sweet enough. The texture was fantastic. I think most folks will want to bake this for slightly longer than suggested.

    Thank you for the wonderful recipe! Please tell me if there is any way I can prepare this in advance, as I only have less than an hour from the time I get home from work. For example, I am soaking or drying in the fridge (?) since the morning. Thank you very much!
    Could You do a review on that?

      Hi, I never placed the batter overnight, not sure how it will turn out. I would measure and prepare all of the ingredients the night before then in the morning mix the dry with the wet and bake.

    I just finished eating and wanted to say that the food was delicious! I decided to add some extra spice to the recipe, using cardamom and nutmeg, and I didn’t add the icing because the dish was already sweet enough. The texture of the food was fantastic and I believe that most people would want to bake it for a little longer than suggested.

Leave me your lovely thoughts
