Dark Rye Bread

This recipe is from Allrecipes.com   It is an awesome recipe.


1 1/8 cups water
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups rye flour
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon caraway seed
2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1.  Place ingredients in the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.  Note: I always place my flour in first, then yeast, then warm water, then everything else.

2.  Select Basic cycle and press start.

NOTES:  Gene loves this bread. Next time I'll try adding a few more caraway seeds and will also bake it in the oven rather than the bread machine. This is a heavy bread.

12/02/12 ~ Made a loaf of this today. I had no rye flour and about 3/4 cup of wheat so I threw that in instead and made up the difference with white. Added a few more caraway seeds than called for. It turned out beautiful! This is my favorite bread recipe, I've decided.
