We love pumpernickel bread. It's great for Rueben sandwiches! You could make this into long hoagie rolls if you use only the dough setting and shape them yourself.

Serves:

2 lb. loaf

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

2 Hr 30 Min

Ingredients

1/2 c
milk
7 oz
water
1 1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
molasses
1 1/2 tsp
butter, softened
2 1/2 c
bread flour
1 c
rye flour
1 tsp
onion powder
1 Tbsp
cocoa powder for color (optional)
2 1/4 tsp
active dry yeast (quick acting)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place ingredients into bread machine pan in the order given. Use basic or whole wheat setting on the machine, and operate according to manufacturer's instructions.
2
OR, use dough setting only. Turn dough out on oiled surface and shape your own bread. This would work well in a greased round casserole, let rise 1 hour, (can make cross mark on top after rising to allow escape of steam). Bake at 425 degrees about 25-30 minutes. You can even top with sesame seeds by using an egg wash and pressing the seeds in, as in the picture. (add seeds before baking)
3
OR, shape into two regular loaves and place in greased smaller bread pans (8x4 inches). Let rise until double, about 45 minutes, then bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
