Sightly sweet and has a subtle flavor of coffee. Combination of honey, coffee and cocoa make this bread a special treat with your cuppa.
The dough is quite sticky and you need to add extra flour to work with. It rose quite substantially after it has been baked. Give it a try friends! I think you will be amazed at how tasty and fluffy it turns out.
