Chocolate Mocha Bread
I made some chocolate mocha bread in my bread machine to have for breakfasts and snacks this week.
I just made some substitutions to the usual basic plain whole grain bread that I use as a foundation. Instead of water or milk, I used strong coffee. I added some baking cocoa, mini dark chocolate chips, coconut, and chopped walnuts. I use strong wholemeal flour in the machine and I always add a bunch of porridge oats (salt and yeast, too, of course). I realise as I type that I forgot to add vanilla, which I could have done (or almond extract). No matter--it's delicious as it is. I like it heated up or toasted with butter butter and raspberry or strawberry jam, or peanut butter. Yum! 😋
