Chocolate hazelnut bread

With all the hazelnuts and chocolate, this bread tastes incredible; similar to a warm slice of bread slathered with a thick layer of Nutella, or even better. This bread is an excellent addition to any brunch table or perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee or even a cold glass of milk in the afternoon.

Adapted from: Bread: Baking by hand or bread machine

  • 3 ¾ cup bread flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp instant yeast
  • 1 ½ cup water
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped toasted hazelnuts
  • 200 grams (7 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, salt, yeast and water, mix on medium speed for about ten minutes, transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and let it ferment for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in bulk.

  • Grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with butter. Once the dough has doubled, add the hazelnuts, chocolate, butter and the egg, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes and shape to fit into a loaf pan. Cover the dough with a tea towel and let it proof for about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F; bake the proofed loaf for 30-45 minutes, tent with aluminum foil if the top gets too dark. Cool the baked loaf on a wire rack and serve slightly warm. If you have leftovers, wrap in aluminum foil and warm in an oven preheated to 275F.

This looks so gorgeous and fluffy! I bet the flavors are reminiscent of nutella with the hazelnut and chocolate mixed in there. I'm trying not to drool as I imagine having one of these :D

Awesome! You used real hazelnuts and not a chocolate jar of hazelnut spread.

Beautiful post!
I just made something quite similar for the Daring Bakers challenge, but without the hazelnuts. Must be a wonderful addition! Love them :-)
