hot chocolate bread


For some strange reason I don't like hot drinks, so I always feel like I am missing out when it comes to hot chocolate. I was trying to think of a way to experience hot chocolate without actually having to drink it, and so hot chocolate bread was born.

Everyone has their favourite kind of hot chocolate. Here I used dark hot chocolate with almond milk. This version has a mildly bitter flavour, sweetened by cherries, but if you want to be more indulgent, add an extra table spoon of your preferred hot chocolate, and use full fat milk.

And just because chocolate is hard to resist, I made this into soda bread, so you don't have to wait for it to prove before tucking in.

Bryony -sounds delicious -what did you put on it to eat? and does it rise?
by Finy
Hi Finy

With the cherries inside, I find the bread to be quite juicy and moist, and like to have it without anything spread on it at all. However, it would go very nicely with butter. The other day I even dunked it in some custard.

The bread does rise, but since it has rye flour, you will find that it does not rise as significantly as you would expect with white or wholemeal by itself. I also think soda bread doesn't quite as much as using yeast and proving.
