Chocolate And Chestnut Lucky Bread Per Tatta

pane al cioccolato

This has been a quite interesting week. Besides a few technical problems in our lovely Stockholm’s apartment, the cat “decided” to be severely sick and needed surgery. But what has all of this to do with a scrumptious chocolate-chestnut loaf of bread?

Well, the link is in the lucky coincidence of Tatta’s (our little Persian) life-saving operation and the baking of this loaf. So that when I got the happy news that Tatta had made it, the bread was just ready to go into the oven. That’s why this loaf is for Tatta. A really lucky and perfectly Autumny loaf indeed (SCROLL DOWN FOR THE RECIPE).

Perche’ questo delizioso pane al cioccolato e castagne sarebbe per Tatta? Semplicemente per la fortuita coincidenza di averlo preparato il giorno dell’operazione che ha salvato la vita del nostro piccolo gatto persiano (Tatta, appunto). Le castagne erano cotte e il lievito mi guardava impaziente quindi, nonostante la preoccupazione, mi sono messa a impiastricciare in cucina. E quando ho ricevuto la bella notizia che il gattino era salvo, il pane era appena andato in forno. Veramente un pane fortunato (SEGUE LA RICETTA).

This is a quick, delicious, and seasonal treat which goes amazingly well accompanied by a cheese platter, and which will leave your family and friends deeply impressed. With no effort whatsoever from your side (SCROLL DOWN FOR THE RECIPE).

Come per le mele, siamo cosi’ abituate a trovare le pere tutto l’anno che ci dimentichiamo facilmente che sono al loro massimo in questa stagione. Quindi ho deciso di valorizzarle con una ricettina facile facile che lascera’ la vostra famiglia e i vostri amici a bocca aperta (salvo poi chiuderla per addentare queste pere deliziose). E vi costera’ zero sforzo o quasi (SEGUE LA RICETTA).
