SP's Chocolate Sourdough
Oh my, oh my, oh my. I finally made Shiao Ping's Chocolate Sourdough. Let me first say, SP--you really need to publish a cookbook. It would be full of great recipes and fun, witty stories. I thank you so much for bringing us this recipe. Words just don't describe how good this is. "Epic" is a good starting place...kudos to your son. I made this as written. All I had in the pantry were milk chocolate chips (large chips, about double the size of the regular bittersweet chips). The biggest challenge I had was chips popping out of the dough as it was folded...I just poked them back in. The crumb is delectable...light, fluffy, but substantial at the same time. Nice crunch to the crust, but delicate as well. All my SD breads have used a 125% starter, so I needed to convert my liquid levain to a semi-stiff levain for this recipe. This makes 4 nice-sized loaves. Perfect for sharing! This is just so incredible...everyone needs to make it!!
