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.

How to Make Pumpernickel Bread for Bread Machine

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place 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.
  • 2OR, 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)
  • 3OR, 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.
