Pane Al Cioccolato

Last Saturday, I had to fulfill an order for my colleague. Therefore, I thought I might not have time to bake too many stuff for my family. So I decided to just bake breads for my family. Flipping through my bread recipes, I chose Pane Al Cioccolato, which is simply just Chocolate Chips Loaf.
Recipe for Pane Al Cioccolato, extracted from "The World of Bread" by Alex Goh.
(Makes 2 loafs)

Ingredients:
(A)
450g Bread flour
150g Wholemeal flour
1 tsp Salt
50g Fine sugar

(B)
380g Cold water

(C)
40g Butter

(D)
130g Chocolate Chips

Method:
  1. Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) and knead to form a dough.
  2. Add (C) and continue to knead to form a smooth and elastic dough.
  3. Add (D), mix till well combined.
  4. Mould dough into a ball. Cover with clear film and leave it to ferment in warm place for 50-60mins.
  5. Mould dough into a ball again and let it rest for 10mins.
  6. Knead dough one last time, shape it back into a ball, then put it into a loaf pan, greased and lined with baking paper.
  7. Let it prove for 60mins then bake it at 190C for 30mins. Bake on low shelf, using both top and bottom heat.
  8. The bread will rise quite high, so to prevent the top from burning, cover it with foil after it's been in the oven for 20mins.
I baked these to fulfill the orders for my colleague's son's birthday. Glad that they liked them!

I also made one of my favourite marble cakes as a birthday present for a nice colleague friend.
