Two Tone Chocolate Yeast Loaf

Labels: { , , } | © 2011 |

A soft,tender, lightly sweetened two-toned yeast chocolate bread swirled with a layer of orange chiffon cake. Not only is it DELICIOUS, it looks quite pretty when you serve it. They are excellent when toasted and spread with butter or jam for a satisfying breakfast or afternoon snack.
Alternatively, you can replace the cocoa powder with milk powder (or just flour) to prepare a sweet bread dough, then topped with a disc of chocolate flavoured foam cake.

In October, I was the very LUCKY winner of $40 Amazon gift card from Choc Chip Uru - Go Bake Yourself. Uru is a 17-year-old culinary genius and a serious chocolate fan. Please head over to her space and learn more her baking, her fun undercover stories. The cookie stamp and cupcake decorating set I have bought with the gift card have finally arrived this Saturday. Thank you once again, Uru! | © 2011 |

  • 200 g Refined spelt flour
  • 160 All purpose flour
  • 40 g Dutch-Processed cocoa powder
  • 7 g Salt
  • 90 g Brown sugar
  • 8 g Instant dried yeast
  • 190 ml Milk, lukewarm
  • 50 g Butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 Large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 disc 10-inch Chiffon cake
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine spelt flour, bread flour, cocoa, salt, brown sugar and the instant dried yeast. Blend well.
  2. Warm the milk and butter in a saucepan to about 40C/100F. Lightly beaten the egg and add warm milk mixture and vanilla extract. Whisk together.
  3. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, pour in the liquid mixture. Stir with a dough hook at slow speed for 1 minute. Increase the speed to the medium and continue to knead until smooth, and the dough leaves from sides of the mixing bowl. Add more flour if necessary.
  4. Turn out the dough and shape into a ball. Lightly grease the mixing bowl and return the dough ball into the bowl, turning to grease all sides. Cover and proof the dough in a warm place for about two hours until it doubles in volume.
  5. Knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured work surface, cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll out the dough into a large oval shape and top with the chiffon cake. Roll up like a jelly roll, placing the seam side down into a 33-cm loaf pan.
  6. Butter a piece of plastic wrap and place loosely over the dough. Let rise again until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 180C/350F and place bread in the center of the oven. Bake for about 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool on wire rack. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

This loaf is so appealing to the eye- I have tried a marbled rye bread that looking quite similar. But clearly lacked the CHOCOLATE DELICIOUSNESS!! I can't believe it has chiffon cake in brilliant!

What a gorgeous loaf, Angie! It would be perfect for Thanksgiving brunch!

mjskit 20/11/12 23:21

Evelyne CulturEatz 22/11/12 19:40

Fabulous loafs and got to check out that book!

Choclette 22/11/12 19:44

Oh your bread looks absolutely fabulous, both are good and I can't quite figure out which I prefer. What a great idea. You may (or may not) be interested, but this month's We Should Cocoa is chocolate and bread and I'm also hosting Breakfast Club this month which just, err, happens to be chocolate! So this would be a great contribution to either or both if you wanted to join in.

I bought the home made stamp last year. I love it, but haven't yet found a recipe that leaves a good definition. Will be interested to see what you do with it.

GG 22/11/12 23:03

Chiffon cake and bread is a brave thing to do. And it's really worked - looks fabulous. I've had my eye on that cookie stamp, looks great doesn't it? GG

CL 23/11/12 02:27
