  • Combine the flours, cocoa, sugar, coffee and salt in large bowl.
  • Make a depression or"well" in the middle of the dry mixture.
  • Pour the warm water into this"well," then add the butter, honey and yeast.
  • Combine the food coloring drops with ¼ cup of water and add that to the"well.
  • "Slowly mix the ingredients with a spoon, drawing the dry ingredients into the wet.
  • When you can handle the dough, begin to combine it by hand, kneading the dough thoroughly for at least ten minutes, until it is very smooth and has a consistent color.
  • Set the dough into a covered bowl in a warm place for an hour, to allow it to rise.
  • When the dough has risen to about double in size, punch it down and divide it into 8 even portions.
  • Form the portions into tubular shaped loaves about 8" long and 2" wide.
  • Sprinkle the entire surface of the loaves with cornmeal and place them on a cookie sheet, or two.
  • Cover the cookie sheet (s) with plastic wrap and let the dough rise once more for another hour in a warm location.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° degrees F.
  • Uncover the dough and bake it for 20-24 minutes in the hot oven.
  • Loaves should begin to darken slightly on top when done.
  • Serve warm with a sharp bread knife and butter on the side.
  • If you want whipped butter, like you get at the restaurant, just use an electric mixer on high speed to whip some butter until it's fluffy.
