chocolate spread bread ...Μερεντο ψωμο

Yummy chocolate spread bread

4 cups -(500gr) of flour     

1 cup of warmed milk  (not hot )

2 egg yolks  (keep egg whites for brushing over top)

2 table spoons (30gr )softened butter
1/2 cup -(30gr) of sugar 
25gr fresh yeast  or 8gr dry yeast 
a pinch of salt
1 cup of warmed chocolate spread ..nutella ...merenda

Are you ready to make this really yummy chocolate spread 

bread .....

well this is how I make mine ... 

 Sieve the flour into a bowl ...  in another smaller bowl add the

warmed milk (not hot just slightly warm )

 crumble in the fresh yeast and 2 spoons of flour...

cover with a cloth and wait about 30 mins until it starts to get a bubbly look ...

 now add the yeast mixture into the bowl with the flour slowly add all the other ingredients except the chocolate spread  knead into a soft slightly sticky dough...

  cover again and wait till it rises and becomes almost double in size it will rise faster if you put the bowl in a warm part of the kitchen ...

 Once your dough has risen it's time to get an oven tray ready I like using oven paper on my trays it saves a lot of washing up  .. and turn your oven on to about 170 degrees ,  now warm the chocolate spread I put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds .... 
  Take your dough and separate it into four equal pieces
lightly sprinkle a clean work surface with flour and roll out the dough into a nice circle about the size of a dinner plate and about 2 or 3mm 
thick ... place it on your oven tray and cover it with warm chocolate spread ...  roll out the next layer of dough and do the same  until all layers are done  leave the top layer without chocolate ..
 Now the tricky bit  put a cup in the middle of the bread press it in a bit (not too hard )  take a knife and cut it into 4 equal pieces make sure you cut ONLY up to the cup  .. then cut each piece in the middle again ... then once more cut each piece in the middle ..
   Remove the cup and carefully take 2 cuts and twist them towards each other twice tuck the ends under a bit so it's tidy .. do that with all the bread ..
  Take a fork and beat the egg whites you kept from before and using a pastry brush ... brush all the top of the bread try not to smear the chocolate ...
  Put it in a pre heated oven of about 170 degrees  for 15 to 20 mins  keep an eye on it you don't want to burn it ...the smell coming from the oven is divine it will make your mouth water ..
  Be careful let it cool a bit before eating I know you really want to eat it ,but hot chocolate spread can burn you ..

  enjoy ..have fun  and don't hesitate to ask any questions, you can find me on my Jewellery page on FB
