This isn’t an easy bread to make, the time taken is soooo long. First, the dough is very sticky, much more sticky than the sweet bread dough. In the end I just leave it to proof then put into the fridge. The chocolate paste isn’t as smooth as I thought to be and it did not harden, I could not roll out as a dough so I also leave it in a container and put in the fridge.
The first and second folding was alright but when I attempt to roll out to do the swirl, there seems to be bubbles and the dough is so thin that you could see the chocolate. The next thing is that it spill out, luckily it was just a corner. The next worst thing is when I attempt to cut into half, the chocolate paste wasnt hard enough and it was messy. I couldn’t even do a proper plait and I just sent the whole loaf into the oven. So you could see the chocolate wasn’t spread out well.
The bread is indeed soft inside but the outside is easily turn into a crisp crust. Will definitely try it again but this time I will prepare the chocolate filling the night before, giving it enough time to really turn into a “hard paste”.
