Bread Machine Time

About 3 hours


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast
  • 1-1/2-POUND LOAF
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk


Add all ingredients except glaze to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer, adding chocolate chips with flour. (If dough is too dry or stiff or too soft or slack, adjust dough consistency - see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below.) Drizzle the cooled bread with Chocolate Glaze

To make the glaze, stir together powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and  enough milk  to make glaze of drizzling consistency.

Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal color setting.

Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour. The machine can not compensate for wide variations and may not bake the larger amount of dough thoroughly.
