white chocolate bread

First of all, let me say, YUM!

I've been wanting to try out this bread recipe since I first saw it about a month ago. And let me tell you - it's divine! I've practically eating half a loaf myself and it's only been out of the oven for an hour. :D

This recipe is incredibly easy and I promise you can't mess it up. It only took about an hour and I finally got to break in my stand mixer! What a thrilling event. And it's so scrumptious. Husband says it's decadent and he's currently distracted by his new Nerf gun.

Anyway, on to the recipe. (I made a half recipe). Let me know how you like it. Enjoy!


White Chocolate Bread

Makes 5 loaves. Recipe from Love and Olive Oil via ClubMed Insider.

8 cups flour

1 teaspoon yeast

1 tablespoon wheat gluten

2 teaspoons salt

3 1/2 cups water

2 3/4 cups white chocolate chips


Place flour, yeast and gluten in a small bowl. Mix on medium-low or first speed for 1 minute. Add water and mix for another 2 minutes. Add salt and continue to mix for another 8-10 minutes on medium or second speed.

Add chips and mix for 1-2 minutes or until the chips are well distributed throughout the dough. Take dough out of bowl and lightly knead into a ball. Let rest for 15-20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450?F. Divide dough into 5 equal portions and knead into the desired form. Let the loaves proof for about 30-45 minutes, depending on the heat and humidity of the area.

Place uncooked loaves on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes.

    Also, cool blog. I think I'll add your link to the blogs I follow...
