Ingredients for Chocolate bread in a clay pot

Step by step instruction of cooking Chocolate bread in a clay pot

Шаг 1

I want to draw your attention that here again the main thing - idea, and the bread you can choose any, it will look spectacular Australian vegetable bread http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/509 14/ or monkey.
So: malt fill it with 100 ml of boiling water, mix well, let cool slightly.

Шаг 2

Melt the butter and mix it with cocoa.

Шаг 3

In the remaining water dissolve the yeast, if you take a fresh, sugar. Now mix all the ingredients and mix here is silk dough. Please note that the flour is all different according to humidity, so if the batter is very stiff, start little by little add the water, and if liquid, then the flour.

Шаг 4

Give the dough to rise twice, obtinem and laid out in the form. In half of the batter I added roasted, chopped almonds.
Prepare a NEW pot. Say, bread in pots are very popular in Germany, there is a new pot coated with vegetable oil and put to burn in the oven at 250 gr. do two to three times. Thus, on the pot forms a natural "Teflon". BUT the fumes in the house is such that ......, especially if you, like me, there is no extraction.

Shorter, simpler form to lay baking paper - cut out a circle for the bottom and a rectangle for the walls. If you do go for it, thus prepared the pot before baking again put some oil and flour, or make a mash of butter and flour is 1 to 1.

If you take the glazed pots, it is better to shoot paper.

Шаг 5

Now fill the test pots. If the pot has a strong narrowing towards the bottom, then fill the dough in half, if the pot buds "direct", then a third.

Шаг 6

Cover the dough with a damp towel and let the dough rise in a warm place until the edge of the pot. I have the dough in a big pot rose faster, so it first went in the oven.

Cook the first 20 minutes at 160 - 180 gr. Low temperature is necessary in order that the dough has grown slowly, if the oven be very hot, and the dough is bad coming up - may break the roof.
After 20 minutes add up to 220 degrees and bake for another 20-30 minutes.
