And Now, Chocolate Bread


In case you're needing more chocolate.

Use any recipe for light, rich, white bread (preferably with lots of butter and eggs). Let it rise as usual, but before shaping it into loaves, chop a lot of semi-sweet chocolate (I used 6 ounces for two loaves) into rough chunks and fold into the dough before the second rise in the pans. Bake normally. It's like an easy chocolate croissant knock-off. It's so good.

What a beautiful loaf! Absolutely gorgeous!

Mrs. Anna, I'm going to get all mushy on you-- about five minutes ago I was almost in tears over the fact that my car is yet again malfunctioning for no apparent reason for the second time this month. I brought up my blogroll, and there was a post from you and those almost-tears disappeared! You brightened up my night-- you always seem to make me smile! Thank you!

That looks fantastic! It's February, the month of chocolate so I may have to try and make one of those loaves. Thank you.

Schoggiweggli! Are you sure you aren't using a Swiss cook book this week? This is the stuff of Swiss Bakeries you're sharing. Sutter Begg, for example

I was so inspired by your bread, I made my own! I did a brioche and added chunks of chocolate to one of the loaves! I am just sitting here waiting for it too cool so I can bag it - we can't wait for breakfast! Thanks for the inspiration!
