This simple make ahead mix recipe makes a wonderful addition to gift baskets or as a simple make ahead recipe that can be tossed into the bread machine at a moments notice. It boasts of a just a hint of cinnamon and an explosion of chocolate chips in each bite.
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips (measure into small baggie)
In a zip-style bag or vacuum seal bag combine bread flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, cinnamon, mixing well to completely combine. Set the baggie of chocolate chips on top. This makes 1 Pkg of Mix.
To Make the Bread:
1 Pkg of Chocolate Chip Bread Machine Mix (See above)
4 tablespoons soft butter
1 cup warm milk (80F)
1/4 cup water (80F)
1 package bread machine yeast
Combine all items in your bread machine as directed by the manufacturer and bake using the setting for a 2lb loaf.
As an example, Our bread machine requires the liquids to go into the bread machine pan first, then add the bread mix, make a shallow well in the center and add the package of yeast. Dot the 4 corners of the pan with softened butter. Bake on the setting for a 2lb Basic Loaf or 2 Lb Sweet-loaf (your choice). Make sure that you choose the setting that allows you to add fruit/nuts/etc later and when that beeper goes off, add your chocolate chips at that time. Otherwise you will have a loaf of Chocolate bread instead.
The ingredients for the bread mix can be stored in mason jars, just add a package of yeast to the top and attach directions. Alternatively you can make this with instant dry milk by adding 1/3 cup instant dry milk in the mix and changing the water to 1 1/4 cups TOTAL.
