Step 1

Combine 1 1/2 cups bread flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and undissolved yeast in a large mixer bowl

Heat butter, milk and vanilla until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to dry ingredients and mix at medium speed of electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Add egg and remaining 1 cup bread flour gradually, mixing until batter becomes smooth and sticky. Fold in chocolate chips and cherries.

Let batter rest for 10 minutes, then portion evenly into a greased standard (2 1/2 inch) 12-cup muffin pan. Let rise for about 1 hour or until doubled.

Bake in preheated 375°F oven for about 20 to 25 minutes.
