Fantastic Bake-Along – Chilli/Chocolate Bread

FantasticBakeAlong

Happy Saturday!

I have missed last month’s bake along, but I’m back to participate in the Fantastic Bake Along hosted by Tracy @itsatsweetday. This time, Tina from Kristabella’s Hodgepodge chose the recipe, and it is chilli/chocolate bread! 😊 You can find the recipe here on Tracy’s blog. I was very excited about this month’s bake along, as my hubby doesn’t like chilli but I love it, so it meant a slightly more selfish bake with all the resulting bread for myself!

Tina’s recipe uses a bread maker, but I just used my trusty Thermomix to make the dough by combining all the elements, then kneaded it and let it rise a first time. I hit a small snag at that point, because the chocolate chips had started to melt into the bread! But that didn’t discourage me, I knead my dough again and I then put it into a pan and waited again for it to rise some more. After approximately 40 minutes of baking, here it was!

I loved the spiciness of the chilli with the chocolate, it’s just a great combination! 😍 It was actually so good that half the loaf is gone already 😅

Fantastic Bake Along – Whole grain bread

FantasticBakeAlong

Happy Monday everyone!

Like every month, I’m participating in the Fantastic Bake Along hosted by Tracy @itsatsweetday. This time, Kathy was choosing the recipe, and it was whole grain bread! Yum! You can find the recipe here on Tracy’s blog. As you may know, I am french and of course I love bread!

I didn’t really have access to all the ingredients that Kathy listed, so I kind of improvised! I decided to make my bread using flax flour and white flour, and I added in some sesame and poppy seeds as well. I used my Thermo to mix in my dough, then kneaded it.

It was quite dense so didn’t rise as much as normal bread would but I didn’t really mind. After I baked it, it was really nice, maybe not as fluffy as your usual bread but still super tasty!

It’s really lovely toasted and I am going to enjoy eating it this week for breakfast, with some homemade blackcurrant jam my nana sent!
