Sourdough Cacao Sweet Bread

Prep Time6 hrs
Cook Time50 mins


  • 1 cup fed sourdough starter
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup tutti frutti
  • 2 cups warm water


  • Combine all ingredients except water in large bowl and mix to combine. Add water and mix until thoroughly combined. Cover with greased plastic wrap and a kitchen towel.
  • Leave to rise until doubled in size, approximately 3 hours.
  • Spray a 10" Dutch oven with non stick spray. Transfer dough to Dutch oven and spread in an even layer. Leave to rise until doubled in size, about 3 hours.
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Uncover. Bake for another 10 minutes.


Notes: I made this bread on the first really cold day of the season, back in January, on a night when it was 16 F outside my window. The rising time will be less if it is warmer where you are. I would start checking it after 1 hour.
