We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

Yeasted Brownie Bread, add peanut butter and sliced bananas for a great sandwich!
Yeasted Brownie Bread with Walnuts
This bread has such a sophisticated flavor.
As written this is not a sweet bread. It is delicious with the sugar listed in the recipe, it is not too sweet as a loaf of sandwich bread. This would make an unbelievable good chicken sandwich.

Should 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!

Honestly, when I first noticed this bread recipe, my first thought was "meh". Then one day I decided to try it, I don't know why, but I am so glad I did. It turns out this bread is not only good, but it is also delicious.

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 ingredients on dough setting.

When the dough is done mixing and going into the final rise, add walnuts to the side of the 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 the cycle ends to work in nuts, or turn the dough out and work in my hand. Shape into a loaf, place in prepared pan, let rise a final time.

When the dough has doubled in size, preheat oven to 350,

Ready to bake, Yeasted Brownie Bread.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until done. Let rest 10 minutes in the pan, turn out to cool completely.

Have a wonderful dinner!
