A dark dense black bread
Bread Machine Mock Dark Rye Bread
I wanted some dark rye bread and didin't have any rye flour so I decided to make it using whole wheat flour.
Here is the resulting recipe. It makes a dark loaf that looks like and tastes like dark rye. Most of the flavor comes from the caraway seeds.
It is really good for sandwiches and has a crumb like honey wheat bread.
1 1/4 cups water
2 Tablespoons molasses or dark corn syrup
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 Tablespoons yellow corn meal
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon caraway seed (or to taste)
2 1/4 teaspoons (or 1 packet) bread machine or instant yeast
Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
Select the BASIC or WHITE BREAD cycle, 1 1/2 pounds and press START.
Monitor the first few minutes of kneading. If necessary to form a smooth, non-stick dough ball, add more flour or water a tablespoon at a time, as needed.
Makes one 1 1/2 lb loaf.
