This chocolate bread is not a sweet bread at all, but rather a savory loaf. It is good with cream cheese!

2 loaves


  • 6 cups bread flour

  • 1 ¾ cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 4 ½ tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast


  1. Combine flour, warm water, cocoa powder, sugar, sunflower oil, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Stir everything with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.

  2. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.

  3. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a ball and place on a baking sheet. Cut crisscross designs in the top of each ball, then cover with a kitchen towel. Let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.

  4. When dough has almost finished rising, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  5. Remove the kitchen towel, and bake dough in the preheated oven for 35 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
