Print Friendly and PDF

Cherry Chocolate Bread flavors blend to make an unforgettable taste sensation. This is bread with a difference that your family will love. It tastes it’s best when it is cooled completely. The loaf is a soft cake like bread that will almost melt in your mouth.


1 1/4 cups luke warm water

2 cups bread flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup molasses

1 tablespoon cherry brandy or triple sec

2 tablespoons dry milk powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup dried chopped cherries

½ teaspoon lemon zest



In a large bowl, combine the molasses in the warm water. Then stir in the yeast. Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes or until the yeast is all bubbly. Stir in the cherry brandy or triple sec and blend well.

In a medium bowl combine the salt, lemon zest, dry milk powder, whole wheat flour, and bread flour. Stir until well blended. Mix the bread flour mixture into the yeast mixture one cup at a time. Continue to mix in the bread flour mixture until a soft dough ball forms. You made need more or less flour.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead for approximately 8 minutes.

Place the dough into a large oiled bowl and rotate dough until all of it has been lightly coated in oil. Cover with damp clean cloth and let rise in warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour or until double in size. I like to place it on the top of my stove as it pre-heats.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

Once the dough is double in size punch it down. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. During the last minute of kneading incorporate the chocolate chips and the dry shopped cherries. Continue kneading until fully incorporated.

Roll the dough into a 9 x 5 inch rectangle. Roll up like a jelly roll and place into a lightly oiled 9x5 inch loaf pan. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.

When the loaves are double in size, bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

Remove the Cherry Chocolate Bread loaves from the oven and transfer the loaves to a cooling rack or a clean dry cloth.

Allow the Cherry Chocolate Bread loaves to cool completely before slicing for the best flavor.
