Braided Chocolate Bread
Prep Time20 Minutes
Servings1
Cook Time35 Minutes
Ingredients
1 tbsp granulated sugar
½ cup warm water (110-115°F/45-56°C)
2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast
3 ½ cups Robin Hood Best for Bread Homestyle White Flour, divided
1 tsp salt
¼ cup honey
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 egg yolks
¼ cup Crisco Vegetable or Canola Oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions
  1. In large mixing bowl, dissolve sugar in water. Sprinkle in yeast; let stand for 10 minutes or until frothy.
  2. Add 3 cups (750 mL) of the flour, the salt and next 5 ingredients and mix until a rough dough forms. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead, dusting with flour as necessary, for 10 minutes or until a smooth elastic dough forms.
  3. Place dough in large greased bowl, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in warm, draft-free area for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Punch down dough; knead in chocolate chips. Divide dough into thirds; roll into 18" (45 cm) long ropes and braid. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in warm, draft-free area for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. GLAZE: Brush egg over surface of bread. Bake in preheated oven 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let cool on baking sheet on wire rack.
