Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread is a rich chocolate-y yeast bread studded with chocolate chips. Similar to Fleischmann's Chocolate Bunny Bread

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 packet rapid rise yeast 2 1/4 teaspoons
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2/3 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Grease the bottom and sides of a loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl mix 1 1/2 cups flour, cocoa, yeast, sugar and salt for about 1 minute until mixed and sifted.
  3. In a small pan heat milk and butter until butter has just melted - do not boil! Mixture should feel warm to the touch.
  4. Add to the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  5. Add enough extra flour to knead the dough, about 1/2 cup at a time. If you have a dough hook attachment it is best to use it to knead the dough so you do not need as much flour, which will make the bread tough.
  6. Knead for 6-8 minutes until dough is elastic. Knead in chocolate chips. Put dough into prepared pan.
  7. Cover and let rise in a warm draft free place until doubled (about 45 minutes).
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake loaf 35-40 minutes until done. I usually tap it on the top and if it sounds hollow it's done.
