3 1/2 cups of plain flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 cups water
Generous Handful of 80Noir Ultra Chocolate Beads (shop now) (I split mine in half)
Just add 2 tbsp of your choice of sugar
You will also need a Dutch oven pot or a large cake tin will work fine.
First mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, including the chocolate beads
Create a well in the middle of the dry mixture and add the water
Whisk up until you have a sludgy dough, if you want to get more involved you could use your hands, beware it is sticky
Cover and leave to rise in a warm area for 8 hours
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Flour your surface and tip the dough out onto it, fold over 4 times Add more sprinkles of flour and fold more if it is still too sticky
Slit the top and place in your pot
Bake for 30 minutes covered and then 15 minutes uncovered
Try to leave it to cool and rest before you have any, but this bread fresh and warm with a bit of butter is delightful!
