Pane e Cioccolata


Bread and chocolate served with the apricot jam I made yesterday.

6 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
3 cups water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chips or equivalent of chopped chocolate


Start to prepare the dough around 6pm in the evening before you make the bread. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, and water. Mix until flour is moistened and then combine salt.  Dough will not be smooth, it will look kinda shaggy.  Cover it and let it sit for a few hours.  Before you go to bed, lightly flour counter top and flatten dough.  starting from one end, add a line of chocolate and then roll dough one turn to incorporate the chocolate, continue this until you have a rolled loaf to make a spiral effect. Cove and let sit overnight on cookie sheet or in a greased bowl.

In the morning, Preheat oven to 450 degrees with Dutch oven inside to also heat up. Plop dough into preheated Dutch oven. Let cook with lid on for 25 minutes. Uncover and let cook for about 15 minutes more until browned on top. I made some apricot jam yesterday.
