Brownie Walnut Bread (yeasted), Recipe rewind because some things are too good to miss!

Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will can also view it here in the archives, Wednesday July 28, 2010.


This bread has such a sophisticated flavor that I wanted to share it with everyone again!

As written this is not a sweet bread, it is delicious and with the amount of sugar listed in the recipe it would also be 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!
I have noticed "chocolate" bread in various places, and as it turns out, in one of my very own cookbooks! Honestly when I first noticed this bread, my first thought was meh. But then one day I decided to try it, don't know why, so very glad that I did. It turns out it is not only good, it is delicious and not at all like I thought it would be, it is so much better!

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.

 (I could not get my machine to turn back on to knead the walnuts into the dough, when the cycle ended, and worked them in by hand)

Restart machine when cycle ends to work in nuts, or turn dough out and work the walnuts 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.

Don't wait too long to make this bread, seriously! It will be a year round favorite in your family.

As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments.

  1. Chocolate and walnuts in a bread. I think that I would eat it on its own, perhaps with a thick spread of salty butter! Yum! Looks wonderful, Melynda!

  2. Oh it looks delicious. I love combining chocolate with nuts!

  3. Good Morning Melynda,
    I sure wish that Brownie Walnut Bread was sitting in front of me right now for my morning coffee. This is a great recipe that I can't wait to try! Hope you are having a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  4. I've never seen a bread like this yeasted! It sounds and looks incredibly yummy! I bet it would make some yummy french toast too.
