Chocolate Cherry Bread

2 1⁄2 cups bread flour
1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
1⁄2 cup dried tart cherries
1⁄2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1⁄4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
1⁄2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1⁄2 cup buttermilk
1 1⁄4 to 1 1⁄2 cups cool water
Coarse cornmeal for dusting 

Combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Combine buttermilk and 3⁄4 cup water in measuring cup and add to dry ingredients. Stir with rubber spatula. Add remaining water as needed until you have a thoroughly mixed, wet, sticky mass of dough. (The dough will not be like any other bread you’ve made – this will be much wetter and will not form a ball.)

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, for 12 to 18 hours.
