Chocolate Yeast Bread

14 ingredients

This recipe makes 2 gorgeous loaves sparkling with sugar crystals. The chocolate bread has chocolate chunks throughout and a slice reheated in the microwave is divine. This makes a great Christmas morning treat or gift to a friend. This bread is not difficult or complicated to make, the time involved is for double risings and restings. If you prefer you can make this with an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Cooking time includes 6 hours for the starter to proof. It was originally created by Paula Oland of the Balthazar Bakery in New York.
