Serves: 9X5′ Loaf Pan | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cooking Time: 50 Minutes

Tips: Let’s say you’ve got the chocolate and coffee all ready, but not the buttermilk. Fret not, 1 tablespoon of vinegar stirred into a cup of milk and allowed to sit approximates buttermilk closely enough that it will pass muster in this teacake. Plus, there’s no need to buy a liter of the stuff and wonder where else to use it (making more cake, perhaps?)
