I make this every Christmas. It makes nice gifts too. I bake some in mini bread pans and wrap it in red or green saran wrap with a pretty bow.

How To Make

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl mix softened butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time to incorporate. Then add molasses and vanilla.

    Sift together flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Add slowly to liquid mixture until combined. Pour into greased and floured bread pan. (I like to cut a piece of wax paper and put in pan before flouring - then in grease it and flour the entire thing. This really helps when you remove it from the pan)

    Bake for 30 to 45 minutes until done. Test with a toothpick. Once done remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. Once cooled place back into pan and pour 1/8 cup jack daniels and place in fridge overnight to soak.
