Cocoa & Chocó Chip Bread

Good winter weather always brings in all kinds of urges for food. Although I avoid visiting the chocolate sections of the supermarket except for our little one to keep a check on our weight & waistlines a look at the baking essential counter caught my attention towards the Chocó chips. If not chocolate I thought I can pacify our sweet tooth with some Chocó chips in our bread. Somehow was not convinced of using all purpose four only hence tweaked in some whole wheat flour also.
So happily pampering ourselves with this chocolaty and tasty Cocoa & Chocó chip Bread 

2 Cups - All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup - Whole wheat flour (Atta)
1 1/2 tsp –Instant Yeast
1 Tbsp – Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp – Olive Oil
2 Tbsp – Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup –Water
1/4  th Cup –Chocó Chips
1. Take water in a small vessel and dissolve sugar. Just warm the water and add instant yeast and mix well. Cover and let it rest for 10-15 minutes and it turns frothy.
2. In the meanwhile mix sieve together wheat flour, all purpose flour, unsweetened Cocoa powder and salt. Now add olive oil and mix well. Add the yeast mixture frothed and knead well for 10 minutes. The dough should be soft and not sticky.
3. Expand the dough a little and spread the choco chips on it as shown in the picture.
4. Now with light hands mix the choco chips with the dough till the choco chips gets mixed up evenly. Do not over mix as this may dissolve the choco chips in the dough.
5. Now shape it into a loaf shape and place it in a greased or foil wrapped loaf tin.
6. Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it in a warm place for an hour or till the dough is raised to nearly double its size. During summers the dough raises just in an hour and it takes nearly two hours to rise during the winters.
7. Bake it in a preheated oven at 190 degree C for 20-25 minutes on center rack or till the bread turns golden brown. Take it out from the oven after five minutes and remove it from the tin and keep on the rack to cool.
8. Smear a little butter on top with a brush or with your finger tips.
9. Slice it with a sharp knife only once its cooled completely.
We enjoyed the slices just like that and it tasted so good just like chocolate cake and for a moment made us forget that it was bread.
Note: As I use instant yeast only one rising is required.
You can add more Chocó chips say like 1/3rd to 1/2 cup to enjoy more chocolaty bread.
