Bread Baking Babes: Chocolate Prune Bread (January 2014)

Chocolate Prune Bread

January 2014

These chocolatey yeasted rolls - stuffed with 72% chocolate and prunes - were made using a recipe from "The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" (revised & updated edition) by Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. and Zoë François. I was feeling a bit sugared out after Christmas so I cut back drastically on the amount of sugar. As a result, these rolls are not quite dessert material. But they are perfect for a slightly decadent breakfast.

The recipe suggested forming the dough into a loaf. But the others said the inside of the bread had a tendency to be a bit doughy and underdone. So I decided to shape the dough into rolls.

I nested them into a parchment lined springform pan to rise.

It was tricky to tell whether they were baked through. Happily the skewer through the centre method worked and the rolls were indeed done. And even though I played fast and loose with the sugar measurement (I added just a third of the amount called for), the rolls were pretty wonderful. Remarkably, even with all this chocolate, the prune flavour and aroma came through every so often.
