"This chocolate bread doesn't taste sweet. It tastes savory, and is good with cream cheese!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sunflower seed oil
1 3/4 cups
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 (.25 ounce) package
4 1/2 tablespoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
The first time I made it I followed the recipe and it seemed like it was missing something. I increased the sugar and added vanilla extract and served it with strawberry cream cheese. It was excellent.
Like the other reviewers, I was looking to make this recipe into something it isn't: sweet. I added about a cup more sugar than the recipe called for, and the bread still wasn't sweet. It seems like such a good idea--a yeast bread with chocolate baked right in. It works with peanut butter. I guess I'll have to keep trying.
The bread is perfect just the way it is! Savory and rich chocolate. It isn' t not a sweet bread. If you want brownies make them!
This was delicious! I couldn't stop eating it! I did change it around a little by putting in two tablespoons of molassas. It was perfectly sweet. It's nothing like cake...it's bread, so you can't expect it to be oozing with flavour. Definitely a new favourite!
this bread had the texture, colour and chocolate flavour that i wanted, but could really, really use some more sugar. because I have a sweet tooth and love chocolate, i'm definitely going to double the amout of sugar next time i make it to suit my own taste buds. great recipe! oh yeah i forgot, there was waay too much salt. half it
Years back I had a savory chocolate bread in a fancy restaurant in Mexico. I was tickled to find this and with a few tweaks it was pretty close. I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon & 1/2 teaspoon mild chili powder. I also reduced the salt to 1 1/2 teaspoons. This was so darned easy and went well with a pot of beef stew. BTW if you are looking for a dessert bread....this is not it..... nor is it supposed to be. Thanks so much for sharing Bowen.
Though I have yet to make this, I love the idea the recipe conveys- a real chocolate flavour. Chocolate is not supposed to be sweet, but rather rich. To heighten that appeal, switch the sugar with some molassas and honey, and add 70-75% dark chocolate (semi-sweet or unsweetened will do fine). If you prefer it sweeter after that, mi a bit of cocoa with some honey and cream cheese, and use as a spread.
Sorry, this recipe just wasn't my cup of tea, so to say. I even doubled the sugar.
