1 1/2 c
wheat flour
1 Tbsp
dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp
cocoa, unsweetened
2 tsp
instant coffee
1 tsp
sea salt
2 Tbsp
flaxseeds

RISING AGENTS

3 Tbsp
yeast
1 c
boiling water
1 c
milk
1 Tbsp
dark brown sugar

2 Tbsp

Step-By-Step

1Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.

2For rising agents, boil water then add to milk. Add brown sugar and stir. Allow to cool to warm, then add yeast and stir completely. Allow to become very bubbly and to grow in size. Maybe 10-15 minutes.

3In a small bowl, whisk wet ingredients.

4Add the rising agents and the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Stir well. This should become quite sticky.

5Turn dough out to a floured cutting board. With flour dusted hands, knead dough. Add flour as needed.

6Place in a large pot with a lid; first spray pot with non-stick spray. Allow to double in size for one hour.

7Dump dough back on floured cutting board. Punch down and knead. Place back in pot. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours.

8Divide dough in halves. Form into two loaves. Place on cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick spray.

9If making a circular loaf, cut an X atop. If making a French bread style loaf, just cut in a succession of slanted lines all facing the same way.

10Rub loaves with oil or butter optionally. Then sprinkle with toppings.

11Place in oven at 350. Cook for 45 minutes or so.
