Total Time 1hour30minutes
11½" x 4½" / 29,5cm x 11cm Baking Tray
5cup/ 600g Flour
8tablespooncup / 120g Butter
1cup/ 240ml Milk
½oz/ 15g Fresh yeast
7oz/ 200g Dried fruit
2oz/ 50g Chocolate chips
1Egg or better just egg yolk for eggwash
In a large bowl add the flour, eggs, butter, yeast and milk.
Knead it together until the dough gathers into a ball.
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.
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.
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.
After about 30 - 90 minutes depending on the temperature, the dough should be doubled or at least raised.
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.
Roll one of the previously halved dough out to the size of our baking tin.
Then roll it out in the other direction about 4 times as much.
Cut the fruits and chocolate to the size we like them best.
Sprinkle the filling on top.
If hasn't been done yet then cut the chocolate dough into two too. Roll one out to the same size as the plain one.
Place it on top of the filling.
Roll them up into a log.
Place the roll into a baking tray with parchment paper and repeat the process with the remaining dough. Leave them to raise again for 30 - 90 minutes.
Once the dough doubles whisk egg or better egg yolk for egg-wash and brush it on top of the roll.
Preheat oven 365°F / 180°C degree and bake it until its top is getting a lovely golden brown color, for about half an hour.
Let it cool a bit then slice it up.
