So this is my first post and I was not quite sure how to start but after a lot of thinking I decided the best thing would just be to go for it!
Today I am sharing one of my favourite breakfast recipes, it’s fairly quick to prepare and it requires cooking for about an hour. I like to make it when I wake up early so it’s ready to be eaten by breakfast time and it feels so fresh! I usually have it with a bit of yoghurt and some blueberries and bananas to make it feel a bit healthier and it’s so, so good!
The ingredients are also very easy and I think everyone has them at home, so you can make this bread any time without really planning it. All you need is eggs, flour, greek yoghurt, vanilla essence, chocolate (I like to use dark chocolate), butter and sugar.
As I said, this bread is super easy to make, but one of the key elements is to make sure that your butter is at room temperature, it will be mixed with the sugar with a mixer, so if it’s not soft enough it will go everywhere! I usually buy soft butter (they sell it at M&S in the UK), it’s propper butter, but it’s soft, so I don’t need to leave it out overnight, I usually take it out before cooking and then I sort out my other ingredients and by the time I go to use it, it’s soft enough not to make too much of a mess.
This is how I made it
- First we mix the butter and the sugar
2. The we add greek yoghurt and vanilla and mix it until combined. After combined, we add one egg at a time. Until they are all combined and we have a lovely batter.
4. Our batter is now ready! Now we pour have the mix into a tray, I like to put baking paper on mine so it’s easier to take out. And we swirl the chocolate, I do it in a line. The more we swirl the more lines we will have once it’s cooked.
5. Now we just have to pour the rest of the batter and repeat the process with the chocolate and it’s ready to be cooked for 55-60 minutes.
Serve on its own or with any toppings! We personally love a bit of yoghurt, banana and any sort of berry!
Chocolate breakfast bread
- 100 gr of dark chocolate, melted
- 113 gr of butter at room temperature
- 100 gr of sugar (and a bit extra for sprinkling)
- 120ml of greek yoghurt
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
- 3 eggs
- 192 gr of plain flour
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Melt the chocolate and leave it on the side to cool down a bit. It should still be melted when you use it, we just don’t want it super hot.
- In a bowl, beat together the butter and the sugar until combined.
- Add the greek yoghurt and the vanilla and mix them until smooth.
- Add the eggs, one at a time until combined. It should be a bit runny and not look like dough.
- Add in the flour and the baking powder and mix until combined.
- Spoon half the batter into your cooking tray. Swirl in half of the chocolate, I like to put it on top in a line (as pictured above) and then use a knife to swirl it around. Add the remaining batter and repeat the process of swirling the chocolate.
- Transfer to the oven and cook for 50-55 minutes until you insert a toothpick or a knife and it comes out clean.
- Let cool for a bit and enjoy!
