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.


  1. Thanks for posting this recipe! I'm anxious to try it out. I love rye bread, but I've never made it.

  2. I had never made it either until last week. It is definitely going to be at the top of my husband's "favorite" list. He absolutely went crazy over this recipe. The flavor is just wonderful.

  3. You definitely have to share photo with us next time :)

  4. I just bought a bread machine at a garage sale!! Woohoo! Now I just need to buy some of the ingredients I don't have (like caraway seed, rye flour, and unsweetened cocoa). I can hardly wait to taste homemade rye bread. Sounds so luscious!

  5. I like this recipe. using a bread machine when you don't have time totally works.
