Mexican Chocolate Bread

Recipe

Southwestern and Mexican bakers have a special love of spices. Even their chocolate contains hints of cinnamon, coffee, and orange. Sometimes, I grate Mexican brown sugar, piloncillo, a cross between our light and dark brown sugars, to use in place of the brown sugar called for here. For the chocolate chips, I often use coarsely grated Ibarra brand chocolate from Mexico. Whether you use these special ingredients or not, you will be surprised at how succulent this sweet bread is, right down to the last bite.

  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon gluten
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons SAF yeast or 2½ teaspoons bread machine yeast
