Announcing Bread Baking Day #47 – Bread with Chocolate!

A few days ago, I received an email from zorra of 1x Umruhren Bitten, who founded Bread Baking Day back in 2007, asking if I wanted to host BBD #47.  I was excited and flattered.  I was always hoping I’d get to host one, and now it’s here!  She asked me to come up with a theme, and suddenly, I was stumped!  Most everything, it seemed, had already been done.  Then it hit’s February, the month of love, with Valentines Day smack in the middle, about one week from now.  What do we associate most with Valentines Day outside of red roses?  Chocolate!

I’m asking you all to make any bread you like, as long as it contains yeast, wild or commercial, and incorporate chocolate into your bread any way you want, whether it be all chocolate, bits of chocolate, swirls of chocolate, chocolate stuffed, chocolate topped etc.  The possibilities are endless!  Think pain au chocolate, chocolate babka, yeasted coffee cake, buns or rolls, chocolate pizza, or something like my chocolate, cinnamon. raisin swirl challah.  How about chocolate or chocolate glazed donuts?  Your bread doesn’t even have to be sweet or dessert like.  Chocolate works very well in savory! A baguette with spicy chocolate, perhaps?  A loaf with savory ingredients and chocolate? As long as you combine a yeasted dough of any kind, with any kind of chocolate – you’re golden!  It’s ok if you add other ingredients such as nuts, dried fruits, or anything your heart desires – as long as it’s a bread that contains chocolate.  Get creative, be daring..but most of all, have fun!  If you’ve never taken part in Bread Baking Day before, check out the round-up of last months Bread Baking Day (#46), hosted by Noor of Ya Salam Cooking.
