Leopard print bread is one those few breads which are visually very appealing. The subtle colour between the the light brown and dark brown makes the whole bread look very beautiful.

Leopard Print Bread

If you love bread and if you like the flavour of chocolate in your bread then this bread is for you. This bread uses small quantities of cocoa to get the leopard patches. Hence this bread can be said to be a sweet bread too. I guess a very creative baker came up with this design in bread making. Though making this bread looks very complicated, it is quite easy with the alternate use of cocoa patches strategically placed to get that leopard print patch look.

I have used small quantities for the dark coloured patch. You can choose to use the food colour to get even more dark blackish colour. As much as possible, I avoid artificial food colours, hence I have changed the quantities of cocoa in both patches to get different shades of brown. Now as I write this post, I can imagine the many variations you can do with this bread dough and this technique. I shall leave it to your imagination to come up with yet another creative bread. I have book marked this recipe from Mayuri.

Beautiful bread ! All light and dark colours are showing up very well . The pattern also is perfect and the flavour naturally being chocolate would be awesome . Maybe one fine day I shall try my hands on this bread .

I had tried this sometime back and thanks to my impatience, I ended up with a marble loaf rather than a leopard loaf… hehe… looking at the pics, I am thinking if I should make them one more time, with loads of patience… it looks really good….
