  • Ready In

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups flour, cocoa, sugar, yeast, salt and baking soda. In a saucepan, heat the water, milk, chocolate chips and butter; stir until chocolate is melted. Cool to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup flour and egg; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until browned. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.

This bread turned out fine but was not rich at all. I prefer very rich foods, so this fell kind of flat for my taste buds.

This bread is amazing! A student in my class brought it in for a special treat and we couldn't get enough of it. Mildly sweet with a rich but not overwhelming chocolate flavor. The smell is terr...

This is really good. It took a while for it to rise for me - way more than one hour, but that's ok. It's a dense bread, but wow - great flavor. Reminds me of a chocolate cookie but not overly...

Very good. But I left out the baking soda. I made buns with this and turn out very nice. Yum!

This bread (I made rolls) turned out pretty well, but only with a lot of modifications. I followed Terry137's ingredient recommendations, except I used 4 and 1/2 cups of flour, omitted the oats...

I had success with this recipe, but I prefer it a bit sweeter. 1/3 cup of cocoa to 2 tbsp. of sugar. Perhaps the sugar could be increased?

I made this bread into big soft chocolate pretzels. The bread itself is pretty bland, even when I increased the sugar to 1/3 Cup in hopes of giving it a little more flavor. Next time I'll add ch...

I'm giving it 5 stars even though I haven't eaten any of it. I pretty much followed "bucket of cookies" recipe variation and made a teddy bear shaped bread (pic attached) for a friend for Valent...
