Ingredient Notes and Variations

Instant yeast: It provides a quick rise to the bread dough, which is essential for the right texture. Activate it in warm milk with a sugar pinch before incorporating it into the dough. 

Whole milk: It adds tender and richer crumbs to the bread. You can use low-fat milk or plant-based milk for a lighter tone. 

Turbine sugar contributes to a slight crunch and subtle molasses flavors to the bread. Brown sugar or coconut sugar are other alternatives to make the bread sweet. 

All-purpose flour: It is the primary or standard ingredient to make bread. For a healthier version and chewy texture, you can use additional flour, like whole wheat or almond flour.

Honey: It is one of the best natural sweeteners that add depth of flavors. Use maple syrup for an innovative flavor profile. 

How To Make Chocolate Almond Swirl Bread?

1: Preparing bread dough

  • Pour milk into a bowl-stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • Put yeast, leave it for 5 minutes, and let it become active.
  • Then, you must whisk butter, sugar, almond extract, vanilla, and eggs.
  • After that, reduce the speed of the mixer and add flour and salt.
  • Mix the flour properly, then set your mixer to medium speed. Just knead for a while.
  • Put this dough in a bowl, cover it using cling wrap, then give it two hours to rise.

2: Preparing to fill

  • Butter in a saucepan on low heat until melted.
  • Mix almond flour, chocolate, vanilla, honey, salt, and almond extract.
  • Remove it from the heat and let it cool if it has blended well.

3: Shape the dough

  • After removing the dough, place it on a floured work surface.
  • Roll it out into a rectangle shape with a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  • Spread the chocolaty mixture across it, tightly rolled into a cylindrical form.
  • Make both ends pinch tight to avoid filling out the loaf.

4: Ready for baking

  • Bake 375 degrees before thirty minutes commence.
  • Grease parchment paper onto the baking tray where you will place your loaf.
  • The shaped bun should be covered on the tray using cling film.
  • Leave in the fridge for fifteen minutes.

5: Cutting the dough

  • Slice through a sharp knife halfway down on cold dough.
  • The top end is cinched and twisted to ensure the cut sides face upwards.
  • Cinch the bottom end, then bring it under the loaf pan by cinching the ends inwards.
  • I covered one hour before cooking time began.

6: Baking bread loaf

  • Now, we can put this baking dish inside an oven that holds bread as the temperature is raised within twenty-five or thirty minutes only.
  • Let it cool down before slicing.
  • It tastes best when warm or chilled in the fridge.
