The dough is a breeze to make, slightly sweetened with sugar and enriched with melted butter and egg. I used a mixture of dark chocolate, roasted peanuts and butter for the filling. You can replace peanuts with other nuts or simply use chunky peanut butter with cinnamon chips. Nutella and chopped hazelnuts would be great as the filling too. The bread is best enjoyed warm, while the chocolate still warm and fluid, but it still tastes wonderful after it cools.

DoughFilling & Topping
  • 180 ml Wholemilk, lukewarm
  • 25 g Fresh yeast
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 35 g Butter, melted
  • 35 g Sugar
  • 1 Vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 370 g All-purpose flour
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 80 g Butter, melted
  • 150 g Salted roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 30 g Butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 100 g Dark chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)
  1. Combine milk and yeast, stir and set aside at room temperature for 10 minutes, untill is gets foamy.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add in egg, melted butter, sugar, scraped vanilla seeds and yeast/milk mixture. Stir on slow speed to combine. Add in flour and salt and beat at slow speed for 5 minutes until the dough comes together. Increase the speed and knead until dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it proof at room temperature, until it almost doubles its size.
  4. Grease and line a 30x11cm loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  5. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the dough into 50x30cm / 20x12 inch rectangle. Brush the rectangle with melted butter. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts and chocolate over.
  6. Using a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter, slice the dough vertically into 6 equal sized strips from top to bottom. Stack 6 strips on top of each other, and cut into 6 sections. Place them accordion like into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Cover the loaf pan with a clean kitchen towel, and allow to rise again in a warm place for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  8. Place the butter pieces on the top and sprinkle the brown sugar over. Bake the dough for 32-40 minutes in the middle of or until a deep golden brown. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes then place on cooling rack to cool completely.
