2021 Bread Product of the Year
Weight: approx 500g (£12/kg)
Made with pure unsweetened cocoa powder, dark and milk chocolate chips, and a bit of milk in the dough, to add a little bit of creaminess to the crumb.
Try it (obviously!) with nutella (check our third pic, and yes! as soon as we took that photo we had to spread it well all over the slice and eat it!), strawberry jam, or peanut butter for a boost in the morning!
This is what British Baker had to say about it:
“It’s like having dessert in your bread!” That’s how London-based Buzzing Bee Baked Things describes its enticing Chocolate Sourdough.
The dough is slightly sweet due to light brown sugar and milk in the mix and swirled with intense cocoa. The irresistibility factor is upped even further with milk and dark chocolate chips.
No yeasts are used in the making of this sourdough, which is bulk-proofed for four-to-five hours before the chocolate chips are added to create the swirl. The bread is then put in the fridge for cold proving overnight and baked the next morning.
The marbling inside the loaf comes out different every time due to the hand-made process, and the judges were highly impressed by the precision of the folding and moulding that went into the creating this stunning effect. It wasn’t just the appearance of the loaf that caught the panel’s attention, though, as the smell also met with its approval.
Moreover, the judges were wowed by the depth of taste and the perfect open sourdough texture. “Wow, just wow,” was the reaction, as the loaf scored top marks all round. The panel concluded that the bread was utterly delicious and showed what creative innovation and a high level of skill could achieve when using a sourdough base.”
