Fantastic Bake Along! – Chili/Chocolate Bread Results

Oh my, oh my!   I LOVE this bread recipe!!  If you like spicy chocolate, which I do, you are going to love this recipe too:)!

This month’s star baker, Tina over @ Kristabella’s Hodgepodge, chose this scrumptious Chili/Chocolate Bread for our Bake Along.  She wrote the recipe herself.  Great job Tina!  Yum yum:)!!👏❤️

The recipe was designed for a bread maker, but I made mine with my kitchenaid and oven. I doubled the recipe and  added a 1/4 cup more of water because it was a bit dry.   

After letting the machine knead the dough for 3-4 min. and after a few hand kneads as well, my dough looked like this:

I placed it in a warm oven and let it rise for about an hour.  I took it out and rolled it out.

But because it had been in a warm oven, the chocolate chips melted a bit.  Oh well, a little chocolate on my hands and the counter was no problem. I rolled up the dough cinnamon roll style (I do all of my bread this way), cut it in half and placed them in the pans.  After a second rising,  I baked the bread at 350 for 30 minutes.

When the bread came out it looked so SWEET!

It looked all marbley, and chocolaty.  I really just wanted to look at it a minute or two and admire the swirls of Chocolate:)

I cut into the loaf and buttered a slice while it was nice and hot out of the oven.

The chocolate was just oozing like a chocolate chip cookie.  I couldn’t hardly wait to take a bite.

It was Delicious chocolaty Bread goodness.  At first I was a bit disappointed that all I could taste was the chocolate and butter.  But wait….there it is!  At the end, after the last bite, the ever so slight heat from the chili powder came through!  If you want a stronger bite of chili, I would recommend doubling the chili:)

There you have it.  This is a  totally SWEET recipe for Chili/Chocolate Bread,  if you want to cook up a loaf or two for your family, you can find the recipe on Tina’s blog here, or on my blog here.

I am so excited to see how the other bakers fared with their bread this week.  Here is the list of those who said they would be joining us:

      1. You are probably right, I did mine in my bread maker and the chips melted in and mixed more evenly to give the whole loaf an all over brown colour.


  1. Looks super yummy! Great play by play and photo journal. I felt like I was baking along with you and could inhale the aroma of the fresh baked bread, feel the warmth of the soft texture and see the butter slowly melting into the yumminess. Oh and the glisten of the melted chocolate and the taste as it rolled over my tongue. Oh what an adventure! Thank you for my faux bread experience! 🙂

      1. It’s in the oven right now!! Smells wonderful but I had a little trouble with the rise. I took another look at the recipe and realized I used a whole stick of butter instead of the half stick that it called for!! LOL I have always felt that there’s no such thing as too much butter – I’m not so sure that applies to enriched bread dough!! 😀
