Bittersweet Chocolate Boule

I feel like I’ve been on a bread bender this week. This was my fourth batch of bread in just five days.  I actually drove around the neighborhood, knocking on doors, giving my bread to unsuspecting families.  All of whom I know of course.  I don’t accost people on the street and force my bread on them.  But, in carb-conscious Los Angeles, bread’s a tough sell.

Boule (pronounced Bool), is the French word for “ball”.  And let me tell you, this bread is just one, big ball of chocolatey goodness.  The cocoa powder gives this bread a very earthy flavor.  And, the organic shape of the bread just adds to that earthiness.  I feel very European when I serve this bread for a Sunday brunch or even a very casual luncheon.
