Ingredients

Directions

flour, salt, yeast, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir until there are no clumps. Add 1 cup of water. Stir and add more water, a few tablespoons at a time, just until the dough forms one ball with no dry pieces on the bottom of the bowl. It is okay if the dough is wet and sticky. Cover the bowl loosely and let it rest for two hours at room temperature. After two hours, sprinkle some flour on the expanded dough and on a clean work surface. Flour your hands and transfer the dough to the work surface. Give the dough just a few quick “kneads” just to make sure it is evenly mixed . Shape the dough into a long rectangle with the short end the same length as your bread pan . Roughly chop the chocolate chips into small pieces. Sprinkle them over the surface of the bread dough. Working from the short end, stretch and roll the dough up with the chopped chocolate inside. Stretch the dough as you roll and roll tightly so that there as much “swirl” as possible. Place the rolled up dough, seam side down, in a bread pan coated with non-stick spray. Cover loosely and let rise until double in size . Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, place the risen loaf inside, and bake until deep golden brown on top . Remove the baked loaf from the pan and let cool on a wire rack before cutting open. Enjoy!.
