Cocoa Bread ~ 可可吐司

Having white bread all the time? Would you like to have a change? Have a cocoa bread instead. It is really just another bread which is bake by adding 15 grams of cocoa powder. I used 15 grams of unsweetened  chocolate powder instead, The smell of chocolate is so good. Every bite give you the feeling like biting into a chocolate bar which is not because this is a   We spread it with chocolate spread or nutella .... yummilicious!

Slices of mini Cocoa bread with a cup of Kopi O (black cofee)
Kids bring this to school for the break time snack.
This cocoa bread uses a straight dough method but it yield a very soft bread. My kids like to spread Nutella but i like it just on it own. 
Spread with butter taste so good too!  Mmmm..Yum!
