Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Quick bread is an old recipe I only made once. Judging by the looks of it, I really need to update this photo. My old notes say the bread was good, so a better photo is in order. Also, that Wild Turkey was just for baking. You need to know that.
Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Quick Bread
2 cups all purpose flour (spoon and sweep) – (260 grams)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (114 grams)
1/3 cup dark brown sugar (70 grams)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 toasted pecans, chopped — optional even though “pecan” is in title
5 tablespoons Bourbon, plus more as needed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan or spray it with flour-added cooking spray.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Beat the butter and brown sugar together until creamy. Beat in the maple syrup and the eggs.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in the chocolate chips, pecans and Bourbon. Scrape batter into the prepared pan.
Bake on center rack at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Recipe recommends to bake one day ahead.
I made this on Saturday – very yummy – I added an extra tablespoon of bourbon (I used Jim Beam Black) and then when it came out of the oven I brushed it with more bourbon – what can I say I love bourbon 🙂

Yum with the maple syrup and the bourbon! Thanks!
Oohh yumm this sounds just beautiful. I love bread and adding bourbon is never a bad thing, is it :P?
That’s kind of how I felt when I saw the recipe. The maple syrup is an interesting addition. About muffins, I think it might work! They probably wouldn’t have gigantic domes, but they’d be moist and interesting. They’d alos be easier to share.
Bourbon, chocolate chips, maple syrup…you have my attention! Pardon me while I press my nose against the screen. LOL Although I “might” share this with a few people, I think I shall bake this just for me. 😉 Would this make good muffins?
