Been on my list for the longest time and I finally got down to it. Indeed a soft and addictive bread that makes me keep wanting to look and eat it! Ooh....
I used my BM for the kneading and leave it to proof. For the chocolate paste, I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I just spread on a cling wrap and leave it in fridge to harden slightly. It works for me as well..
Try this recipe, if u are a chocolate lover, have kids at home, am sure it will be a great hit!
