 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 c Rye Flour
  • 1/2 c Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 3 tb Caraway Seed
  • 2 pk Active Dry Yeast OR
  • 2 tb From A Bulk Jar
  • 1 tb Instant Coffee (Powder Or
  • Crystals)
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 2 1/2 c Hot Water (120-130ø F.)
  • 1/4 c Vinegar
  • 1/4 c Dark (Blackstrap) Molasses
  • 1/4 c Vegetable Oil Or Melted

Thoroughly mix the rye flour, cocoa, sugar, caraway seeds, yeast, coffee
and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the water, vinegar, molasses, and
oil then beat until smooth. Stir in enough unbleached or bread flour to
make a SOFT dough. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and
elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl; turn to oil the top of
the dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch the dough down and divide in half. Shape each half into a ball and
place in the center of 2 greased 8-inch round cake pans. Cover and let rise
until double in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 to 45
minutes, or until done.
