Recipe Directions for Sourdough Chocolate Cranberry Bread

  1. Place cranberries, water and (optional) brandy in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat and let it cool for 15 minutes. Drain the cranberries, reserving the liquid. The way we see it. the water has lots of good flavors in it, so why pour it down the drain? Put in the bread instead! Add enough water to the collected water from the dried fruit to bring the volume up to 1 1/2 cups.

  2. Place the starter, water, and dry ingredients in the bowl of a mixer with a dough hook. Knead it in the mixer for 10 to 12 minutes or until the dough is smooth, silky and elastic.

  3. Add the drained cranberries to the dough, and continue kneading until the cranberries are evenly distributed. This may take some hand kneading to complete.

  4. Put the dough into an oiled bowl,and turn the dough to cover it. Cover again with Saran Wrap Quick Covers, or clingwrap. Allow to rise in warm place until approximately doubled.

  5. Punch down, turn out onto lightly floured work area. Sprinkle a baking sheet with some whole wheat flour, then gently pull and stretch the dough into a round loaf (or two small loaves).

  6. Cover with clingwrap and allow to rise until approximately doubled.

  7. Preheat the oven to 425F. This will take around an hour with the baking stones in place. Uncover, slash, and slide the bread into the oven. Pour a cup or so of hot water into the bottom of the oven and bake the bread 40 to 45 minutes. Cool on a rack and enjoy!
