Ever wondered how coffee buns taste like? This Coffee Butter Loaf (Breadmaker Recipe) is really aromatic, soft and packed with flavours. I have added chocolate chips to my loaf. They melted unintentionally but because of which, this Loaf comes with a Mocha vibe!

As part of my breadmaker recipe series, this Coffee Butter Loaf comes in as the fourth bake of the series. As such, I thought it would be nice to try out more uncommon flavours to show the capability of breadmakers. The best plus point of this recipe, in my opinion, would definitely be how soft it is. Furthermore, this bread matches so well with any spread and goes well for breakfast or a snack.

The most important part of this recipe is the quality of the coffee. Therefore, choose granules that are more intensive and aromatic in flavour even by taste of the coffee itself. The better the taste of the coffee, the better the coffee butter loaf tastes!

I do understand the concerns that the butter might be too strong. However, rest assured that it is quite mild. Therefore, if you would like the combination to be stronger, spread butter over your slice of bread! Also, I would definitely recommend using the chocolate chips. I can’t say for sure that the chocolate will or will not melt, but it definitely makes an amazing addition to the loaf!

Without further ado, the recipe!

Coffee Butter Loaf Bread Maker Recipe
by Javier Tan March-29-2020

Aromatic, soft and fluffy, this Coffee Butter Loaf is infused with the right amount of caffeine and a dash of chocolate for that touch of sweetness. Perfect to go with any spread!

I am using a bread maker of at approximately 750g capacity for this recipe.


For Bread:

  • 2 and 1/2 Cups or 310g Bread Flour
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 Teaspoon or 60g Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon or 12.5g of Coffee Granules (Unsweetened)
  • 1 Large Egg, Room Temperature, 55g each
  • 3/4 Teaspoon or 4g Table Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon or 7g Instant Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup or 60g Unsalted Butter, Melted
  • 1/4 Cup + 1 Tablespoon or 75g Milk
  • 1/4 Cup + 1 Tablespoon or 75g Water
  • 3/4 – 1.5 Cup, or 150g – 250g Semisweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Firstly, heat up the milk, water, butter and coffee granules in a saucepan until it forms a single mixture with all the granules dissolved. Then, leave aside for about 5 minutes to cool.
  2. Place the ingredients in the sequence as specified by your Bread Maker’s instruction manual. As a reference, I added everything at the bottom with the wet ingredients first before adding flour and then yeast!
  3. Next, bake as per the bread maker machine specify. However, different bread maker have different functions. For mine, I used a French Bread Function, which took approximately 3 hours of cook time.
  4. Then, add the chocolate chips. I added mine at a “feeding point” stage which is an hour into the machine, it is the point where you add the toppings or filling in.
  5. Finally, serve and enjoy once you are done!
  • Prep time: 2
  • Cook time: 3 hour 3
  • Total time: 3
  • Yield: A delicious chocolate loaf!

  2. Store at room temperature for up to 5 days. Optimally, eat it within 4 days!
  3. As this guide is quite general depending on which Bread Maker you are using, feel free to consult me if you have any questions!
  4. It is okay to use instant coffee stachets but you might have to use more since the coffee powder is mixed with sugar and creamer.
