Barry's splendiferous chocolate dessert bread

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Betty Crocker Super Moist
\N \N Double Chocolate cake mix
1 cup All purpose flour
1 cup White bread flour
½ cup Whole wheat bread flour
3 tablespoons Gluten flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 tablespoons Oil
1 tablespoon Swirl powder *
2 teaspoons Yeast
1 large Egg
¼ cup Liquid (half chocolate syru
\N \N And half water)
1 cup Water
11 ounces Mandarin oranges diced
⅓ cup Chopped walnuts or almonds
⅔ cup Chocolate chips **
½ cup Coconuts (shreaded)
⅓ cup Maraschino cherries (diced
\N \N Or quartered)

* Swirl powder comes in a separate envelope with the cake mix. ** Use semi-sweet chips

Adjust the amounts of fruit, nuts, and chips to suit.

Pat oranges and cherries dry between double layers of paper towels. Add fruits, nuts, and chips, at the beep or near the very end of the second kneading.

Variations: Add more fruit. Use some juice from the oranges in place of water portion of liquid.

Serve plain as a snack or dessert, or, add your favorite topping for added enjoyment. HINT: Cut into extra thick slices.

Barry's Notes: I do find, now, that the chocolate syrup adds a bit of creaminess that the plain recipe lacks. The bread is cut into double thick slices. I've then been cutting each slice in half and either frosting them or placing a plain slice on a dish with (home made) ice cream.
