This Bittersweet Chocolate Coconut Bread recipe comes to us from my friend at Bella's Breadbox. And we are so lucky to have it!
Please note that 99% of the prep time is inactive. Makes 1 loaf.
Place a tea towel on your work surface and generously dust it with flour and sprinkle it with ½ cup of the coconut. Gently place the dough on the towel with the seam side down, and lightly sprinkle the surface with the remaining ½ cup of coconut. Fold the ends of the tea towel loosely over the dough to cover it and place it in a warm, draft-free spot to rise for 1 to 2 hours.
Half an hour before the end of the second rise, preheat your oven to 475°F with a rack in the center, and place a covered 4½ to 5½ quart heavy pot in the center of the rack. (You're preheating the oven with the covered pot in it.)
