no-knead bread with chocolate chips

No-knead bread is the easiest bread in the world to make. With a handful of ingredients and a dutch oven you can make a glorious bread boule and feel like the most accomplished bread baker in the world.

I always thought that no-knead bread had to rise overnight to come out right. This past week I discovered a version of no-knead bread that can be made in just under 2 hours and basically my life is now complete. Wait, no, once I realized I could add chocolate chips to the bread, THEN my life was really complete.

The result is a crusty white country-style bread with chocolate chips. The only way to make it better is to slather a slice with salted butter and devour it while it’s hot.

Wait! You need a Dutch Oven!

In order to make this bread you will need a dutch oven. Dutch ovens can run from about $40 all the way to $530 or more*. You really don’t need a fancy one for this recipe. I use a 3.2 quart dutch oven to make my bread, but you could easily use a bigger one if that’s what you have on hand. You can find a very wide range of dutch ovens on Amazon* (some which can even be delivered as early as next week). There are usually a couple options on Zulily. And some occasionally at thrift stores. I purchased one of mine at Marshall’s and another at Ikea.

PLEASE NOTE:

This recipe was originally published by Gimme Some Oven with a plethora of amazing tips to make the bread juuuuuuust right as well as a bunch of variations. Please check it out and give them some love. Over there you can also find the original, overnight version of this bread which I highly recommend if you’ve got the patience.

Ingredients
Chocolate Chip No-Knead Bread
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt and yeast.
  2. Add the warm water and, with a large wooden spoon or spatula, combine all of the ingredients until the flour is fully incorporated. Your dough will be shaggy and very loose. That's ok!
  3. Cover the bowl with a clean dishcloth or plastic wrap and set in a warm place for an hour. Your dough should more or less double in size.
  4. Turn your dough out onto a well floured surface. Sprinkle dough with flour and fold the edges of the dough towards the center a couple times to give the dough a little more structure. Sprinkle chocolate chips onto the dough and fold the dough again. Keep sprinkling and folding until there are chocolate chips throughout the entire ball of dough and the dough feels springy under your fingers.
  5. Shape the dough into a ball and place on a piece of parchment paper. Cover again with a dishcloth or plastic wrap while the oven preheats.
  6. Set your oven to 450F and place your dutch oven in the oven while it preheats for 20-30 minutes.
  7. Very carefully take the dutch oven out of the oven and gently place the parchment paper and dough into the dutch oven. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and cook 10-20 more minutes until the bread reaches your optimum color.
  8. Remove the dutch oven from the oven and carefully lift out the bread. Set bread on a cooling rack to cool so the bottom doesn't get soggy. Enjoy!

Amazing Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

While we are all stuck at home during this indeterminate amount of time, waiting as patiently as possible for the Covid-19 virus to run its course and the world to right itself, here at Casa de Rosenberg, we are increasing our baking frequency and our waistlines all at the same, totally unrelated, time. Rapidly waning bananas prompted me to create this recipe, made from a mish-mash of a whole bunch of other recipes that just didn’t have everything I wanted in a banana bread. Enjoy!

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare one large or two small loaf tins.
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. With a hand or stand mixer, cream softened butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  4. While still mixing, add the eggs one at a time, waiting for each to be well incorporated before adding the next.
  5. Beat in the sour cream (or yogurt) and vanilla extract.
  6. Beat in the mashed bananas.
  7. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix!
  8. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  9. Pour into the loaf tins and bake for 60-75 minutes. Your banana bread is ready to come out of the oven when an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean of batter. (Your knife/toothpick will have melted chocolate on it.)
  10. Turn loaves onto a cooling rack and allow to cool. Loaves can be well wrapped up and frozen.
