Chocolate Flavour Bread Loaf
Received a gift box of the Chocolate Flavour Instant Mix. This is a vegan product and without preservative. Made from organic ingredients, it consists of cocoa powder, red beans, pearl barley, brown rice, rock sugar, malt extract powder, natural vanilla powder and salt. A sachet weighs 30 gm. Was told that this product is given out to those affected during natural disasters when it is inconvenient to cook nutritious food.
Since I wasn’t drinking it, I used it to make this bread loaf. Like my previous bread making, I used white coffee instant mix instead of wasting them. So if you happen to have whatever instant beverage mix and not drinking it, do try to use them in bread making rather than leaving them until the shelf life is over.Verdict – the bread turns out soft, moist and chewy. Tasted good and very aromatic.
