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 bread...lol   We spread it with chocolate spread or nutella .... yummilicious!

这换上黑衣裳的土司感觉还蛮不错!!
香香浓浓的可可味再抹上巧克力奶油无以伦比呢!

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!






This is the cocoa bread dough before and after the first rise.
