Cooking Thursday....Brownie Bread


Yesterday I was in such a baking mood that I made hamburger rolls and a new bread recipe I found Brownie Bread. The hamburger rolls were something I always wanted to try but never had until yesterday. I must say they turned out really well. The brownie bread was another one that sounded interesting to me. Since I do not like chocolate my family was my testers. Everyone loved it! So for Cooking Thursday I'm posting that recipe. ENJOY! I always start my bread in my bread machine and then finish it in the oven.


Brownie Bread
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup boiling water
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2 teaspoons white sugar
1/2 cup warm water
3 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
1 egg
1 egg yolk

In a small bowl dissolve cocoa in the boiling water, let it cool a little. In another bowl dissolve yeast, sugar and warm water let that sit for about 10 mins or until creamy.

Place cocoa mixture, yeast mixture in bread pan. Place oil, eggs, flour, sugar, salt in the pan.

Set the breadmaker on the dough setting. After the cycle ends remove dough from the bread maker and place in a bread pan. Let the dough rise until doubled in size.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan and let it cool.

This would easily be adapted to make without a bread maker. Just place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well and let the dough rise. Punch down and knead and let it rise again. Then bake like directions above.

I will have to try this one, I like to start my breads in the bread maker to but bake it myself in the oven, it turns out better every time and you get a conventional loaf shape.
