Chocolate Mocha Bread

Again, I didn't post both video and blog much lately.

I still bake a lot (almost every day, haha) but most of the problems came from the time that I baked, the light was not enough for shooting the video.

So, some of the recipes need more time, until everything is right, time, light, and the people who will eat it.

Anyway, I will try to make each video as good as I can ^^.

Now, let's talk about this bread.
I can't remember how many times I tested this recipe. 
This rich and flavorful bread is packed with cocoa powder, coffee, chocolate, and nuts. 



Two main problems with this recipe were the amount of sugar and the fat. But don't worry, I already fixed it.

First, for the sugar amount, I suggest you use yeast that is designed especially for doughs high in sugar (I use saf-instant gold).

Second, the fat, both cocoa powder and whipping cream are fat, so you should not knead it into the bread dough in the first place. Knead the dough until it develops enough gluten, then add the cocoa powder and whipping cream with the butter will make the bread rise beautifully. And if you want to make sure that your bread will rise, choosing the bread flour with 12% protein is another option.

For the chocolate lover, you can change from chocolate chip to dark chocolate chunk too.
