This is one of the two different bread recipes that i would like to introduce to you. The two breads recipes that i am going to bring to you have unique flavor and has a texture and taste that is not found in other breads.
Bread flour 2.5lb
White sour dough (mother dough) 1.5lb
Water 1.5lb
Coco powder sifted 6oz
Salt 1.25oz
Yeast 1.5oz
Coffee powder 2oz
Pre-fermented dough 1lb
Chocolate chips 1lb
Dried cherries 1lb
  • Before you can start off with this recipe we need to have mother dough which is pre-fermented dough that has been fed for 1 day with 1.5lb bread flour, pinch of yeast and water.
  • Once we have the pre-fermented and mother dough, sift the coco powder, bread flour and coffee powder through a fine mesh.
  • Mix the pre-fermented and mother dough together in a mixing bowl and add in the sifted ingredients into the bowl.
  • Add water to the mixture (luke warm water) to activate the yeast and the gluten in the flour.
  • Finally add in the chocolate chips and dried cherries into the bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Let rest for the yeast to develop in the bread. (the process that is going on inside the dough is the sugars feed the yeast and produces co2 gases and this gives the dough volume)
  • Bake it in a pre-heated oven at 400*F
