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.
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
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).
