  1. This recipe is incredible! I’m not a huge chocolate chip fan but oh my goodness! Coffee cake, dessert, just yummy! I reduced the chocolate chips but honestly I could have made this as written. So good. My family loves this.

  2. I have not had the opportunity to make this yet as it is 12:19 A.M. Mountain Daylight Time here. I look forward to having one of my caregivers let me help them mix this recipe up and bake it to share with some my friends here at the apartment complex where I live.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you in the near future, if you like!

    During your garden tour this month, you showed the beautiful “Cosmos” and “Zinnias” you have. They remind me of my dear sweet Mama’s flower beds. She and my aunt always had many different flowers. Mama used to say that working in the dirt was her therapy place. I miss her dearly, but I know without a doubt that she is in heaven with Daddy and most of her siblings and her parents.

    P.S. I will certainly let you know how the “Chocolate Pecan Bread” turns out. I am sure it will be absolutely delicious.

    Thank you,
    Betty Jo

  3. Hello instance,
    Betty Jo here from Northwest Wyoming;

    I am wondering what kind of brown sugar you use it seems to be darker and has larger crystals? Also, I am wondering if you are using a cast iron loaf pan to bake this loaf of “Chocolate Pecan Bread”? Do you have a particular brand of Cast Iron that you readily use in your kitchen?

    I was watching one of your videos and heard about your dear chickens. I am so sorry to hear this. Please watch your chickens, and watch your back at all times when you are outdoors. That fox has the taste of chicken blood in his mouth and he will work to annihilate your flock of chickens if you and your family are not always vigilante.

    I have another question, Constance. What has happened with your dear little granddaughter, “Willow”? I miss seeing her sweet little face and seeing the joy she brings to your face. If I have questioned something very personal and not for the world to know, please forgive me. I will understand if this is to be a private email from me to you, ok?!

    I will begin to pray for you and your whole family, little “Miss Willow.

    May the dear Lord above watch over each of you, whether together or absent one from the other. Amen

    • Hello Betty Jo! I make my own brown sugar from organic sugar and molasses. This particular sugar was a bit coarse, but it worked just fine. I’ve been making my own brown sugar for 10+ years. https://cosmopolitancornbread.com/how-to-make-brown-sugar/

      Willow is still here. As a matter of fact, you can see her in the background of today’s video when I am out in the garden (wearing the coral blouse.) Her parents just asked that I not show her too much in the videos, as the internet is full of “icky” people. :) Prayers are much appreciated, always ❤️
