What makes it a donut type bread?
One difference between a cake type bread versus regular bread is the leavening agent that make the dough or batter rise. It is essentially the leavening and the handling of the recipe that influences the final product. But, sometimes it is the amount of sweetness that gives one finished baked product the title of "cake" or "bread".
I played a little with the recipe and was craving that sweet goodness that anything marbled offers! All jokes aside, and after tweaking an old recipe of mine, this version was born and I was pretty darn happy with it!
- All-purpose flour
- Organic fair trade Cocoa Powder: This is by FAR the best I have used in any of my recipes that require it.
- Granulated Sugar
- Vegetable oil
- Unsalted butter
- Vanilla extract
Tips for the chocolate glazed marble donut bread
- You can use a buttermilk substitute if you don't have any on hand. It would be ½ cup of milk+ ½ teaspoon of vinegar. I usually don't have buttermilk on hand most of the time, so I have had to use this substitution. It works great!
- Make sure to swirl your butter knife around to get that perfect marbled look, otherwise it will just look spotty.
- When making the chocolate glaze/ganache, you can always add a little extra of vegetable oil to thin it out before drizzling on the bread.
