Chocolate Challah

Ingredients:  Cocoa Powder, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Water, Eggs, Vegetable Oil, Vanilla Extract, Bread Flour, Sugar, Gluten, Salt, and Yeast.

This is by far the favorite of everyone!  My roommates and friends ate this bread so fast that I only got one slice for myself.  The pockets of melted chocolate made eating this Chocolate Challah a heavenly experience indeed.  A Challah is a traditional Jewish egg bread, often resembling more of a cake than a bread; after eating this one, I certainly agree. I took personal liberties to adorn the crust with powdered sugar and more chocolate.  It looked so good I almost did not have the heart to slice it.  This is one recipe that is going to be made again very very soon.
So I ran into a slight problem shopping today. Where do you find rye flour in Cedar City, Utah?  I found a small one pound bag that will get me by for certain recipes, but before I can start making some true rye breads I am going to need to acquire some real flour.
