  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 egg

Directions


Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in large mixer bowl. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in 1/4 cup walnuts and remaining 1 cup flour to make a stiff batter.
 
Spread batter evenly in a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan; spoon melted chocolate morsels evenly over batter; carefully spread over batter. Sprinkle with nuts. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place about 1 hour.
 
Bake at 375oF for 15 minutes or until a cake tester or wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Drizzle with Chocolate Glaze; cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.
 
Chocolate Glaze: Combine powdered sugar, cocoa, and milk in a small bowl. Stir until smooth.
