Cocoa Bread

Cocoa Bread

Posted 2018-01-22 by Eli Mfollow
Soft and aromatic bread with slightly bitter, but very pleasant flavour, made with three kinds of flour.



Preparation Time: 10-20 minutes plus 1 hour for raising
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients
200g plain flour
200g whole-wheat flour
100g rye flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
20g fresh yeast or 7 g dry yeast
400ml water (lukewarm)
1 tablespoon sugar
100ml oil
1 teaspoon vinegar
some sesame, caraway, pumpkin, flax seeds (optional)

Method
  • Dissolve fresh yeast and sugar into 200 ml of lukewarm water. Leave it at room temperature for 10-15 minutes until yeast activates. If using dry yeast, skip to the next step.
  • In a bowl, combine the three flours, cocoa powder, salt and some seeds (optional). Also, stir in dry yeast if using it.
  • Add activated fresh yeast (if using it), oil and vinegar and start kneading. Gradually add the remaining 200 ml water. You may need a bit more or less water than 400ml total, depending on the flour. Knead until you get a smooth, medium-hard dough that will not stick to the bowl or your hands.
  • Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place. When dough has doubled its volume, re-knead it and let it raise once again. Re-knead it for the second time and shape the bread as you wish.



  • Put the shaped bread into a baking pan (there is no need for greasing and flouring the pan) and bake into a preheated oven at 200°C for about 40 minutes.
  • Once you take the baked bread out of the oven, wrap it in a dry kitchen towel and let it cool completely. This will keep the bread soft and won't let the crust become too hard.
  • You can serve this bread both with sweet and savoury dishes, just as any other bread.
