Chocolate bread (Mon 22.02)

Basic enriched bread with chocolate chips.


  • 500 g white bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 40 g butter diced
  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 250 g water
  • 200 g chocolate chips

1. Mix flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Rub in the butter.

Crumble the yeast in the flour mixture. Add the egg and most of the milk. Mix too a light sticky dough. Add additional milk a tablespoon at a time if the dough remains too dry. Turn out and knead for about 3 minutes to a smooth ball.

Fold in the chocolate chips and knead till all are evenly distributed.

Leave to rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until doubled in size (depends on the room temp.).

2. Turn out the dough, deflate a little and form into a loaf. Avoid to have too much chips on the outside of the loaf (will burn). Put on a greased baking tin.

Leave to rise for another hour or until doubled in size.

3. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 30 – 35 minutes.

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
