In this instructable I show you how you can make a sweet pull apart chocolate and nuts bread. It contains spelt flour, cocoa, cocoa nibs and lots of pecan nuts so what is not to love about this recipe. So lets get started!
Step 1: Sweet Pull Apart Chocolate and Nuts Bread
This bread is really simple to make with the following ingredients: speltflour, yeast, sugar, salt, cocoa, choco nibs, pecan nuts and milk. I like to use vegan butter and almond milk, but you can also user another kind of butter of milk.
You start with making a yeast mixture with water, yeast and a tablespoon of sugar. Set this mixture aside for 5-10 minutes so the yeast can be activated.
Then you add all of the ingredients (with exception of the pecan nuts and choco nibs) in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon. The dough needs to proof and will double in size (about 1 hour). When the proofing is done you can knead the dough for the first time and roll it out into a square.
Then you sprinkle choco nibs and pecan nuts on the dough. Slice the square into six equal slices and put them on top of eachother. Cut these six layers of dough into 10 equal parts and put them in a baking form.
Let the dough proof for another hour so the dough will double in size. Bake at 350℉ for 35 minutes and let it cool. Ready to serve with some (homemade) Nutella or peanut butter. Yum.
