Chocolate – Cherry Stromboli

February 1, 2018



  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pkg. (¼ oz.) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 8 oz. finely chopped bittersweet chocolate, divided
  • ½ cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. coarse sugar


  1. Whisk 3 cups flour, yeast and salt. In another bowl, mix water, oil and honey. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).

    Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 3-5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover with plastic and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.


    Preheat oven to 400°. Press dough into a greased 15 x 10 x 1-in. baking pan. Whisk egg with lemon juice; brush dough with half of egg wash. Sprinkle half of chocolate evenly over dough; top with cherries. Fold long sides of dough over chocolate and cherries, overlapping edges, and leaving ends open. Brush with remaining egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake on lowest oven rack until bread sounds hollow when tapped, about 20 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


    Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt remaining chocolate. Drizzle over cooled bread.
