Chocolate Bread

This chocolate bread doesn't taste sweet. It tastes savory, and is good with cream cheese!


  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 3/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 6 cups bread flour
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. 1Combine flour, salt, yeast, sugar, cocoa, sunflower oil, and water in a large bowl. Stir everything with a wooden spoon until you have a soft dough.
  2. 2Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead for five minutes, until smooth and elastic.
  3. 3Divide the dough in half, and roll each half into a ball. Place both on a baking sheet. Cut crisscross designs in the tops, and cover with a kitchen towel. Let rise until double in size.
  4. 4Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 35 minutes.
