  1. Mix the water and 1 tablespoon sugar in mixing cup. Add yeast and stir slightly. Set aside for 10 minutes until foamy.
  2. Warm the milk and butter in a saucepan to about 110 degrees (butter will not melt completely).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine 3-3/4 cups flour, salt, cocoa, coffee and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Blend well.
  4. Beat eggs slightly and add the warm milk, butter and vanilla; blend. Add this mixture along with the yeast mixture to the flour. Stir in the walnuts and raisins. Mix all with a mixer with dough hook, or by hand with a wooden spoon.
  5. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 to 6 minutes until smooth and elastic. Or continue mixing in the mixer and knead only 2 minutes or so. Add more flour if necessary.
  6. Grease a large bowl and place the dough into it, turning to grease all sides Cover and let rise in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  7. Knead the dough a few times, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for few minutes. Roll the dough into a large oval shape and roll up like a jelly roll, placing the seam side down. Roll from the narrow end to make it fit into the pan size you prefer. Use a loaf pan or a round casserole type pan. Butter a piece of plastic wrap and place loosely over the dough. Let rise again until doubled in size; about 1-1/2 hours.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place bread near the center of the oven not too high. Bake for 25 minutes, then cover loosely with foil and continue baking 30 to 40 minutes longer.
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and finish cooling on wire rack.
