“Club Med’s Famous White Chocolate Bread”

If you have never had a chance to visit Club Med Sandpiper Bay and taste their delicious White Chocolate Bread, you are MISSING out. This bread is amazing. Crispy on the outside, gooey and soft on the inside. Salty, sweet, what dreams are made of.

Club Med actually posted the recipe and how to make it on their YouTube!

Here is the recipe that will satisfy your cravings until you have a chance to experience their bread first hand.

Club Med’s Famous White Chocolate Bread

Note: This recipe is a little different from the recipe in the video. It’s also a little easier. It delivers the exact same results, however.

Ingredients:

4 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups water
2 1/3 cups white chocolate chips

Directions:

Place the flour, yeast, sugar in a small bowl, and mix for a few minutes by hand for a few minutes.

Add water and salt, and mix another minute by hand. Add the chips and mix for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the chips are well distributed throughout the dough.

Take dough out of the bowl and lightly knead into a ball. Let rest for 15-20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Cut the dough into 4 portions and knead into the desired form. (Note: These looked like French bread loaves when we saw them on the rack, ready to bake.)

Place the loaves on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until nicely browned.

(Note: As seen in video, place a (oven-ready) bowl of water in the oven with the bread so that it creates steam which helps it cook correctly.)

Makes 20 servings (4 loaves).

    Tried making this for my husband’s birthday. You left out a crucial step: letting the bread rise! I baked two loaves without letting them rise and they were completely flat. I tried to let the other two loaves rise…. I gave them an hour, and they were only marginally better. Maybe it needed more flour. It’s certainly missing a step or two.

      There are a few factors that could be decided in this… old vs new yeast, etc. Will let you know if I can think of anything else that might have contributed to it not rising!

        We just got back from CM Turkoise a few weeks ago. The bread was not flat like my loaves. I read that the gluten, which is the ingredient omitted from this recipe but listed in CM video, is what makes it so the bread will rise super fast in the oven without having a long rise time. I will try adding the gluten next time and see if it makes any difference.

    I always add 1/2 tsp gluten. I’ve heard that you doing have to use gluten if you use bakers flour. As for rising, I’ve had good results with a double rise- I let it rise in the ball form as stated first. Then I warm the oven on low and turn off the oven. I form the dough into loaves and put in the oven (turned off) for 10 min. Then i remove the dough and then start preheating. Also- if you put a dish of water in the oven while preheating, it makes the outside crispier.

      I’m sure you can. Might be a trial/error but have some fun with it and see what happens! :)
