Chocolate Monkey Bread #breadbakers

By Sharanya

For this month's Bread Bakers , the theme given by Shireen was Cocoa / coca. When I was searching for the bread with cocoa , I came across this chocolate monkey breadin King Arthur Flour. I immediately decided to make this for my sister and Co - BloggerAnu's birthday celebration.


Chocolate is everyone's favorite. Bread made with the use of chocolate will be liked by everyone.

I have used semi-sweet chocolate chips and cocoa powder in the bread . Cocoa powder alone can be used by increasing the sugar.

2 tbs vanilla extract ( optional )

6 tbs unsalted butter at room temperature

½ cup chocolate chips / semisweet chocolate

¼ cup Cadburys cocoa powder

In a mixing bowl , addand mix together the flour , dry milk powder salt ,sugar , mashed potatoand yeast .

To this add in the butter and the luke warm water and mix well with a wooden spatula.

Knead with the hand for about 10 minutes .

Over the bowl with cling wrap and let it for double , it takes about two hours.

Combine all the ingredients under the list and blend together .

I added this blended chocolate mix with 5 tbs butter and heated on double boiler .

As the dough has risen , punch the dough and divide into equal sized small dough balls.

Take a tube pan / Bundt pan , pour the chocolate filling little at the bottom . chocolate chips can be sprinkled.

Dip each dough ball in the remaining chocolatefilling and arrange in the pan.

I arranged two layers , not more than that.

Pour the remaining chocolate filling in the pan . let it for second rise if needed .

I baked immediately as I can't wait .

Bake in the preheated oven @ 180* C for about 30 to 35 minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes and demould.

Chocolate monkey bread is ready to serve.

I didn't use vanilla essence for the dough , as we like the chocolate flavor.

Adjust the level of sugar according to the taste according to the bitterness of chocolate chips used .

I added the melted butter to the chocolate mix and used . You can roll each dough ball in the melted butter and toss in the chocolate mix.
