Double Chocolate Bread

I am giving this Double Chocolate Bread a try as my son and hubby loves anything with chocolate.

Decided to add in some orange juice to further enhance the taste as chocolate and orange is such a wonderful combination.

What you need:

100g bread flour
70g boiling water

400g bread flour
30g cocoa powder
20g milk powder
2 orange (zest only)
6g salt
50g sugar
8g instant yeast

180g - 190g  cold juice/water (juice of two orange and top up the difference with water)
60g cold egg

35g butter

Chocolate chips


Add boiling water to bread flour and mix until incorporated to form a cooked dough.  Cover and set aside to cool.  

Mix bread flour, cocoa powder, milk powder, orange zest, salt, sugar and instant yeast.  Add in the cold juice/water and egg.  Knead to form a dough.  

Add in the cooked dough and knead until well incorporated.

Add in butter and knead until it forms an elastic dough.

Add in chocolate chips and knead to distribute evenly.

Shape to rounds and cover with cling wrap.  Proof for 40 mins.

Divide dough into 50g each and shaped round.  

Egg wash.

Bake for 180 deg for 15 mins.
