Transcript:Chocolate Chip Mandel BreadHi! I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com. Today I'm going to show you how to make chocolate chip mandel bread.
Chocolate Chip Mandel Bread IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of oil
- 3 cups of flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. of vanilla
- 12 oz. chocolate chips
- 4 eggs
Mix the Mandel Bread Wet IngredientsFirst put the sugar, the eggs and the oil into a large mixing bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed. Using a recipe with 4 eggs will make this a more cookie-like rather than a brittle type of mandel bread.
Mix in the Mandel Bread Dry IngredientsNext, add the baking powder to the flour and whisk them together. Now, a little bit at a time, mix the flour into the wet mixture. Once you've got the flour worked in, add the vanilla. Mixture will be thick and sticky. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips with a spoon. You can add walnuts at this time, but I will leave it as is.
Bake the Chocolate Chip Mandel BreadSpoon about half the mixture onto each of the two parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake them for about a 1/2 hour.
Cut the Chocolate Chip Mandel BreadTake them out of the oven and cut the loaf into 1-inch slices. If your loaf is wide like mine, I like to also cut the loaf down the middle. Then, put back in oven for another 5 minutes.
Take out of the oven, serve, and enjoy!
