Cranberry Chocolate Ring Bread

While christmas, we guys go for christmas market which is well known as Marché de Nôel, where the professionals and farmers used to sell their own products directly in their own store to us, we can get easily many regional products which are quite a hard task to get usually..Last time we went to this market, i got an opportunity to get dried cranberries from there and i didnt want to miss the chance..Immediately i bought half kg of this dried cranberries and  am ready to make bakes with them throughout the year, sterday i tried making this simple bread with those dry fruits with few chocolate chunks and this bread turned out truly fabulous eventhough the shape of the bread wasnt that much prefect, coz my son helped me to prepare this bread..He loved kneading and shaping this bread and i enjoyed watching the way he shaped the bread by following my instructions..He was very proud of his bread,definitely am very proud of him too..We enjoyed this bread when they were still warm, needless to say the oozing chocolate tastes extremely irresistible while having this ring bread loaves..Sending to Srivalli's Kid's Delight - Chocolate Feast..

Cranberry Chocolate Ring

3cups Bread flour
1/2cup Butter (melted)
1/4cup Dry cranberries
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Salt
1/4cup Sugar
Few chocolate chunks

Take the active dry yeast along with salt and a teaspoon of sugar in a bowl, add a cup of luke warm water, mix well and keep aside for few minutes,until the yeast turns foamy..

In a bowl take the bread flour,dry cranberries, sugar,melted butter, add slowly the foamy yeast and knead everything as a smooth dough, arrange this dough in a greased bowl and keep aside in a warm place for two hours, punch down the dough and roll them as large disc, now arrange the chocolate chunks over the rolled disc and roll them as a loaf...Join both the edges of the dough,cut the edges of this circle and arrange over a baking sheet, keep again in a warm place until they double their volume..

Preheat the oven to 350F, bake this ring bread in middle rack for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown..Enjoy for breakfast or for a snack..
