Chocolate Coffee Bread

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup freshly brewed strong black coffee
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Chocolate chips
* Make sure the coffee is warm. It shouldn’t be boiling hot.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease and flour a loaf pan 5-9 inch in size.
Sieve the dry ingredients and keep aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together oil, sugar and vanilla extract. Add in the flour mixture alternatively with black coffee.
Sprinkle flour on chocolate chips and add them into the batter. Mix them well. The only reason to coat chocolate chips in flour is that by doing so they would not sit down on the pan.
Pour the bread mix in greased pan and bake at 180 degrees C for 40 to 45 minutes. Check if the bread is ready by inserting a tooth pick. If the tooth pick comes out clean the bread is done.
Let the bread sit aside and cool completely before slicing.
