Instructions

USING THE CUSTOM LOAF PRO

  1. Add all ingredients in order except for dark chocolate chunks, you will add these to the automatic dispenser at the top. Choose your settings and push start.

MAKE WITHOUT A BREAD MACHINE

  1. Tip the flour into a bowl and mix in the yeast with the salt, brown sugar, milk powder and cocoa. Stir in the water, oil.
  2. Now knead together to make a soft dough – using hands or a wooden spoon or knife.
  3. Place onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 mins. (don't skip this)
  4. Note: Don’t keep adding flour, a wet dough is better than a dry one, which will bake to a tough texture so if you don’t like the dough sticking to your hands, lightly oil them.
  5. Gently fold in chopped up dark chocolate chunks and coconut.
  6. Put the dough into an oiled 1kg bread tin and cover with oiled cling film.
  7. Put in a warm place until the bread fills the tin, it should take between 1-2 hrs.
  8. Uncover and bake your bread at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 30-35 mins until golden.
  9. Tip out of the tin and tap the base of the loaf. It should sound hollow when fully cooked.
  10. If not cooked, put loaf back in the oven out of the tin and test again after 5-10 mins.
  11. Let cool.
