Okay, the recipe as requested by Isit and Em....
Basic bread dough:
650g strong white flour
5ml honey or sugar
7g instant yeast
400ml warm water NOT HOT!!!
100g butter melted
200g chocolate broken into little pieces
cinammon only if you like it!
Also add a bit of sugar if using 70% cocoa chocolate, the kids seem to prefer it a bit sweeter.
Okay, if you are lucky like me throw it all in the magimix (or similar) with the dough hook attachment and when the dough comes together remove to knead or continue mixing in machine, I personally like the kneading bit!
OR - make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the liquid mixing until it all comes together.
Knead for 10 to 15 minutes.
Cover with clingfilm and place somewhere warm to rise for about 45 minutes, until doubled in size.
Knock down i.e bring that dough back down to size!
Roll out the dough into a rectangle
Brush on the melted butter sprinkle with cinammon and chocolate.
Roll up like a swiss roll and slice into about 2cm slices.
Place cut size up on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 20 minutes."
I like using a basic bread dough becasue then I make extra and do rolls or a loaf for the lunch boxes. For some reason my youngest gets quite a kick out of telling her classmates that I made the bread...go figure! I am sure that an enriched dough that you could use for brioche would be even better.
And the results are in
