  • 600g bread flour
  • 30g cocoa
  • 2tsp dried yeast
  • 30g butter, softened
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 100g white chocolate, chopped

Add all ingredients together in a food mixer and mix for 5 mins until well blended and dough is elastic. Leave to prove for 2 hours. Lightly knead the dough and shape on a floured surface, then transfer onto your baking sheet.  Cover with a tea towel and leave for another hour, or until twice the size.

Brush with beaten egg and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200c for 15mins, then turn the oven down to 180c and cook for a further 20mins. Leave to cool. Scoff.

This bread was made as a mini celebration of writing my blog for a year. notimeforironing.wordpress.com
