Select Basic/White cycle, medium or light crust (I use light). Do not use delay cycles. Remove when done and cool on rack.
Drizzle this glaze over top:
1/2 C. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 -2 tsp. milk
I just sliced off a piece and my first reaction was "ewww!" However, I've eaten two pieces now, one slathered with peanut butter LOL!
Funny thing about this bread. From the title you would think it was a quick bread like banana bread or zucchini, but it's not. It's an actual yeast bread. There's no visible signs of the chocolate chips, they melted in the bread maker, but it colored the bread a wonderfully rich dark brown. You can really sense the chewy slivered almonds too. This is actually more of a sandwich bread as it's not sweet at all, that's why I had the initial reaction that I did. I was expecting a sweet bread. This will actually make really nice sandwiches or will be perfect with peanut butter or just butter.
So overall, yes this is good! I think the title definitely makes you expect something different though, this is not a dessert but rather an accompaniment.
