Today I decided to make Chocolate Bread (for the first time) in my Andrew James Bread Maker. As you can see, it came out pretty good!
I found the recipe on allrecipes.co.uk and immediately had to try it. I had made a chocolate chip loaf from the same site before and it came out amazing, so this time the natural step was to make an all chocolate one. This post isn’t going to be super wordy, there’s not really much to say about it.. except that it’s really good. Try it for yourself!
First, grab your ingredients together. The ingredients weren’t too complicated actually.. to get an idea of what you’ll need to make this recipe just check out this picture below. Or, you could just go to the recipe and read the full list. You can find the recipe here: Chocolate Loaf
Most of these ingredients you’ll probably already have in your cupboard, especially if you make bread often. Of course, you’ll need a bread maker too.. or bread machine, whatever you prefer to call it.
I absolutely love my Andrew James bread maker though. I genuinely love Andrew James products, they never seem to let me down. I have a waffle maker that’s Andrew James too.. which now makes me want to make waffles. Watch this space, I think waffles could be next!
Put the ingredients in your bread maker in the order the recipe states, I find that it helps to follow things exactly. You may have heard that there’s a certain order to putting things in your bread maker.. but I think that sometimes breaking the usual rules is okay, depending on the recipe.
This chocolate bread goes on the basic loaf cycle and takes 3 hours, in this bread maker, which is nothing for gorgeous fresh bread!
Once it is done, be aware that it’s very crumbly to cut while it’s warm. It’s best to wait until it’s cool, but if you’re impatient like I am.. then be prepared for it to come off in pieces rather than a perfect slice.
This is how it slices when it’s cool, which is more normal than it coming off in pieces.
It tastes really good warm and on its own though, if you are impatient. It tastes really good with butter on it, which is what I did, warm or cold. Or, apparently, chocolate spread or nutella tastes good on it (if you like that kinda thing, which I don’t)
Let me know if you decide to give this chocolate bread recipe a try and how it comes out! I’d love to know. You can also buy the bread maker I bought by clicking on the picture below. I do recommend it though, because it’s awesome. You can do so much with it!
