Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will come..........you can also view it here in the archives, Wednesday July 28, 2010.
This bread has such a sophisticated flavor that I wanted to share it with everyone again!
As written this is not a sweet bread, it is delicious and with the amount of sugar listed in the recipe it would also be a wonderful sandwich bread. This bread would make an unbelievable good chicken sandwich.
IF you want a sweeter bread, increase the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. And it goes without saying, this would be wonderful rolled up with a spicy cinnamon swirl in the works!
Brownie Bread with Walnuts
adapted from: The All New Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook
by Tom Lacalamita
1/3 c warm water
2/3 c milk, warm slightly
5 T butter, cut into small chunks
1 t salt
1/3 c brown sugar (1/2 c for a sweeter dough)
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa
3 c flour
2 1/4 t yeast
2/3 c chopped toasted walnuts
Layer ingredients into bread machine pan in order given. Leave walnuts for later. Process on dough setting.
When dough is done mixing and going into the final rise, add walnuts to side of pan, where they will warm to the same temperature as the dough.
Restart machine when cycle ends to work in nuts, or turn dough out and work the walnuts in my hand. Shape into a loaf, place in prepared pan, let rise final time.
When dough has doubled in size, preheat oven to 350,
Don't wait too long to make this bread, seriously! It will be a year round favorite in your family.
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments.
