Chocolate Swirl Bread

Can’t decide between chocolate or plain bread? Roll them up into one and never look back because chocolate swirl bread simply is the best!


It’s made with white flour so it’s not that low carb dessert as we could go but again. Who can resist to some treat every now and then? It’s perfect to go with a hot drink. The not so hidden raisins will taste like rays of sunshine on a rainy day. It’s an absolutely gorgeous dessert. Soft, fluffy and surprising. Of course we can add some sweetener to it if we feel like it’s gonna be too bland for our taste. No one will blame us for ruining the perfect harmony that would have existed as no one will know the we have done it. Except maybe our guilty gluttony conscious.Chocolate Swirl Bread - SunCakeMom

How to make Chocolate swirl bread

  1. In a large bowl add the flour, eggs, butter, yeast and milk.Flour-butter-yeast-egg-gp-SunCakeMom
  2. Knead it together until the dough gathers into a ball.Flour-butter-yeast-egg-milk-dough-gp-SunCakeMom
  3. Put half of the dough into another bowl, cover it and put it aside in a 68°F – 81°F / 20°C – 27°C place to rise.Flour-butter-yeast-egg-milk-dough-3-gp-SunCakeMom
  4. Mix the other half of the dough with the cocoa powder until even. We may need to do this by hand if our kneading machine won’t pick up the small dough.Flour-butter-egg-milk-dough-cocoa-gp-SunCakeMom
  5. Once we get a uniform textured dough, place it next to the plain dough to double. During the process sprinkle some water on top of the dough so it won’t dry out.Chocolate roll recipe - SunCakeMom
  6. After about 30 – 90 minutes depending on the temperature, the dough should be doubled or at least raised.Chocolate roll recipe - SunCakeMom
  7. Take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and sprinkle some flour on top too. The recipe is for 2 rolls so its time to halve the dough. Cut each dough into two and proceed with one of them to the next step.Chocolate Swirl Bread - SunCakeMom
  8. Roll one of the halved dough out to the size of our baking tin.Flour-butter-yeast-egg-milk-dough-strech-1-gp-SunCakeMom
