Black Forest Pumpernickel Bread Machine Loaf
this one I have been making for ten years, and always turns out fine for me even now in a different machine.
SERVES 16 , 1 loaf
- 1 1/8 cups warm water
- 1 1/2 cups bread flour
- 1 cup rye flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/3 cup molasses
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons caraway seeds
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Place all ingredients into your bread maker according to manufacture.
Select type to a light crust.
Remembering to check while starting to knead.
If mixture is too dry add a tablespoon warm water at a time.
If mixture is too wet add flour again a little at a time.
Mixture should go into a ball form, and just soft and slightly sticky to the finger touch.
This goes for all types of breads when kneading.
This recipe makes a one and half pound loaf size.
