As written this is not a sweet bread, it is delicious and with the sugar listed in the recipe it is a wonderful sandwich bread. This bread would make an unbelievable good chicken sandwich.
IF you want a sweeter bread, increase the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. And it goes without saying, this would be wonderful rolled up with a spicy cinnamon swirl in the works!
Yeasted Brownie Bread with Walnuts
adapted from: The All New Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook
by Tom Lacalamita
1/3 c warm water
2/3 c milk, warm slightly
5 T butter, cut into small chunks
1 t salt
1/3 c brown sugar (1/2 c for a sweeter dough)
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa
3 c flour
2 1/4 t yeast
2/3 c chopped toasted walnuts
Layer ingredients into bread machine pan in order given. Leave walnuts for later. Process on dough setting.
When dough is done mixing and going into the final rise, add walnuts to side of pan, where they will warm to the same temperature as the dough.
Restart machine when cycle ends to work in nuts, or turn dough out and work in my hand. Shape into a loaf, place in prepared pan, let rise final time.
When dough has doubled in size, preheat oven to 350,
Bake 35-40 minutes or until done. Let rest 10 minutes in the pan, turn out to cool completely.
