Natural consequences (funny story)
 
So my ten year old helps me with grocery shopping nowadays and I often ask her to grab a loaf of bread for me. Well,she thought she could slip "chocolate bread" into the cart and mom would never know. :lol Y'all,this loaf of German dark wheat has lasted all week!
This is one time I don't have to do anything. Just go about life and let my daughter learn 1. Chocolate bread is not a thing 2. Labels are our friends
:wink

definitely. Like the chocolate "muffins" you can buy (the grocery store definition of a muffin is a cupcake without frosting).

Didn't Marie Antoinette say something about bread and cake being equivalent? :bag

Wait, I thought that was my 10 year old's definition? :giggle

Only with her it works both ways - she'll put cream cheese on a healthy muffin in order to make it into a cupcake.

So, I love this recipe out of The Cake Bible:

3.5 T dutch-processed cocoa
3T boiling water

1.5 t vanilla
3 eggs

1.25 c cake flour
.75 c +2 T sugar
.75 t baking powder
.25 t salt
13 T softened butter

This is made using the "Reverse Creaming" method. Essentially you mix the wet ingredients together, add some of that and all the butter to the dry ingredients in a mixer and beat well. Gradually add the rest of the liquid. (You get a better texture that way and are less likely to overmix the batter.)

Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for 50-60 minutes.

No frosting necessary!

I love this. And now I want both dark wheat bread toasted with cream cheese as well as chocolate cake.

While we're on the subject of Chocolate Bread :giggle I made this today. It's NOT a cake! The dough itself, without all the added chips and glaze, is a lovely, soft yeast bread with a subtle chocolate flavor. (I used Special Dark cocoa for this, which is more intense than regular cocoa.) Add the filling and it's a decadent treat.

FYI, I skipped the sponge step and just used added that amount of yeast to the second step. The initial rise took longer than 1 1/2 hours, but it was a cool-ish day here, too. The sponge would probably give a more complex flavor along with a slightly faster rise, but isn't necessary.

This bread sounds dreamy!! Gotta get more cocoa powder and then I'm doing it! :heart
