Rich Cocoa-Cream-Filled Cocoa Bread

This chocolate-y bread is filled with a cocoa cream. The cream tastes like it's filled with real chocolate.

Ingredients: 12 bread rolls

For the cocoa bread dough:
Strong bread flour
250g
Cocoa powder
20g
Sugar
30g
Salt
3g
Margarine
30g
Milk
170ml
Dry yeast
3g
For the cocoa cream:
Milk
300ml
Cocoa powder
30g
Sugar
100g
Cornstarch
20g
Margarine
20g

Steps

1. Combine all of the ingredients for the cocoa bread dough into a bread maker and start the bread dough course. Meanwhile, prepare the cocoa cream.
2. Combine all of the ingredients for the cocoa cream, except the margarine, in a heat-proof bowl. Microwave at 500W for 10 minutes. Remove it midway twice to mix.
3. Microwave for another 5 minutes while keeping an eye on the condition of the mixture. Once it becomes very thick, stir in the margarine. Spread it evenly into a shallow tray and set aside to cool.
4. Remove the finished bread dough from the bread maker and punch it down. Separate into 12 round pieces, cover with plastic wrap, and let it sit for 15 minutes.
5. Once the cocoa cream has cooled, use a spoon to cut into 12 parts.
6. Punch down the portions of bread dough and flatten them out with your hands. Place the portions of cocoa cream on each piece of dough and wrap. In a warm place, let them sit for 40 minutes to complete the second rising.
7. Once they have doubled in size, bake at 180°C for 12 minutes.
8. And they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe

My child suddenly proclaimed that she wanted chocolate cream bread, but I had no chocolate so I used cocoa powder instead.
