Bread Machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread setting
Add all of the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) starting with the milk into the bread machine “bucket” (bread pan). Place the bread pan in the bread machine.
Plug in the bread machine, enter the appropriate settings (i.e. light color, basic setting and 2 lb) and press the "start" button.
1 or 2 minutes after starting your bread machine (during the first kneading/mixing cycle), add 50% of the chocolate chips. You need to let the milk & flour be fully mixed before adding the chips.
Place the remaining 50% of chocolate chips in the bread loaf container AFTER the first kneading cycle is complete (around the 10 minute mark in our Sunbeam machine) and before the second/final kneading cycle starts. FYI - The second mixing cycle commences at the 30 minute mark in our Sunbeam machine (on these recipe settings i.e. basic, 2lb & light color). The second batch of chocolate chips will be less beaten up by the mixing paddle than the first set of chips. This allows for more solid chunks of chocolate to survive and enhance the bread's overall chocolaty taste!
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, you should remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) as it will be very hot!
After removing the bread, don't forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
Before using your bread machine, you should read the bread machine manufacturer's instructions in order to use the bread machine effectively and safely.
