I didn't bother with dissolving the cocoa and the yeast, just put everything in the pan according to manufacturer's directions (for my machine, liquid, flour, then yeast on top). My one complai...

One of my favourite recipes to bring to a potluck -- it's so unusual, and I always get raves. No one can believe it came out of a bread machine. I've made it several times, and it always comes...

Very good! Both my fiance and I loved it! I don't have a bread machine, so I just made it by hand, like I normally make my bread. More or less followed the given directions of mixing the cocoa...
