Chocolate no-knead bread


I have been wanting to try Chocolate No-Knead Bread for many moons now, and I finally got around to it this weekend.

My brother and his fiancée were visiting, and I wanted to impress them with a dazzling dinner and scrumptious dessert. We ended up going out for dinner because I've been feeling a bit under the weather, but I still managed to make this. Good thing it only involves a few minutes of active prep time!

This bread isn't very sweet and actually tastes quite a bit like regular no-knead bread, although there is a nice chocolate aftertaste. It was perfect with Nutella and vanilla ice cream.

  4. Looks yummy! Hope all is well and you are feeling better. Kudos to you for managing dessert while not feeling great.

    Are you getting slammed with questions yet? Everytime I got sick before Mo, all I heard was "Are you pregnant?" Used to drive me crazy. I actually thought what fun it would be to get pregnant and just not tell them for a long time, until they did ask. Of course I didn't, but the thought was there.

  6. TJ, no, not too many questions. I am having a lot of health problems lately that my friends and family know about. When we were first married, though, I heard all sorts of insinuations, all the way up to, "So when are you guys going to have a baby?"

    I actually announced my pregnancy (Red Chief) to family when I was about 3 months along, and I just let friends and acquaintances figure it out. :)

  12. Oh...thanks for posting this. Panerra had a speciality holiday bread a few years ago...chocolate-cherry bread and I was in love with it. I even bought the Panerra Cookbook to see if it had the recipe! I can't wait to try it.
