WARNING: Keep in mind this bread will still contain caffeine equal to the amount in the coffee you use to make it (this could be anything up to 800mg per loaf depending on the coffee in question). You can, of course, use decaffeinated coffee if you prefer.

Mocha flavoured bread

Ingredients
  • 300ml lukewarm coffee (any coffee will do, the easiest method is to prepare a few shots of espresso and dilute them, which has the advantage of cooling it down)
  • 1-3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp. whipping or single cream
  • 1 packet/tablespoon of dry yeast
  • 360g plain or bread flour (either will work)
  • 25g of butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract/flavouring
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Powdered sugar


Instructions

  1. Stir the cream and the caster sugar into the coffee, place them in a bowl.
  2. Sift the flour, salt and cocoa powder into another bowl, add the vanilla.
  3. Melt the butter and put it to one side to cool.
  4. Mix the yeast into the coffee mixture. Leave everything for 15 minutes until the butter has cooled and the yeast solution has formed a foam.
  5. Stir the butter into the flour.
  6. Stir the yeast solution into the flour until it forms a dough.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until it becomes springy.
  8. Grease a bowl, place the dough ball in it and put a dishcloth over it. Leave it in a warm place for 45 minutes to let the dough rise.
  9. While you're letting the dough rise, grease a 4x8" bread loaf tin and dust it with flour (or a tray if you want to make rolls). Wash up all the dirty crockery while you're at it.
  10. After 45 minutes, tip the dough onto a floured surface. If you're making a loaf, knead it once again then place it in the tin. If you're making rolls, split the dough into 9 equal parts (cut it into thirds and then thirds again), roll them into balls and place them on the baking tray.
  11. Cover the dough with th dishcloth again, and leave it to rise for another 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
  12. Sprinkle the bread with a little confectioner's sugar and cocoa powder if you like.
  13. Bake in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
  14. Place on a cooling rack. After cooling it can be kept in a sealed bag for up to a week.

Just something I came up with while messing around yesterday.

As the name suggests, it's a coffee flavoured bread with a bit of chocolate.

I tried uploading a picture last night, but my Internet connection wasn't co-operating, so I'll try again tonight.

The bread itself is soft (almost cake-like). As you'd expect it tastes like coffee and has some caffeine in it.

T_T I used too much coffee and too little sugar.
Too bitter this time.

Do you mean you made the coffee too strong? Because I've done it using nothing but espresso, and you only need two tablespoons of sugar at the most.

If you can afford it, try using a darker roast, they tend to be less bitter.
