Ground coffee, cocoa, milk, and a spoon full of sugar. It’s a visit to the coffee shop – but in loaf form.
I was tempted to call this Coffee Chocolate Sex Bread but I couldn’t quite figure out how that third part would work. I mean, what a trifecta though! I tacked on the “not too sweet” because the coffee and coffee flour add the bass notes while the chocolate plays the melody. That would be so cool if it made sense.
I made this bread with powdered milk. I do not like powdered milk. Frankly, I would rather drink rehydrated platypus urine. But the bread! Oh, the bread is wonderful.
Despite a few unexpected ingredients, this is a pretty standard American-style pumpernickel recipe – the coffee, coffee flour, and chocolate provide the pumpernickel overtones.
Okay, so I realize that this is not a bread recipe – and that I have published it on a bread blog. Please take your concerns up with the proper authorities…
This recipe is a variation of my Mom’s Black Peasant Bread from the The Bread Book. It doesn’t look black… unless you close your eyes. This recipe calls for Death Wish Coffee®, my favorite cup o’ joe.
