A Great Healthy Bread
- 3 cups regular flour
- 4 1/2 tsp (2 pk) active dry year
- 1/4 cup of baking cocoa powder
- 1 T Caraway seeds
- 2 cups water
- 1/3 cup of Molasses
- 2 T Butter

3- 3 1/2 cups of Rye Flour
In large mixing bowl combine regular flour, yeast, cocoa powder and caraway seeds until blended well.
In a saucepan combine the water, molasses, butter, sugar and salt; heat until just warm and stir to melt butter. Add to dry mixture. Beat at low speed for 30 sec and then turn to higher speed and beat for 3 minutes more.
By hand, stir in enough rye flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth, adding more rye flour as needed, about 5 minutes. Cover and let stand 20 min.
Punch down dough and divide dough in half. Shape each half into a round loaf ; placed on greased baking sheets or 2 greased bread pans. Brush surface of bread with a little cooking oil. Slash tops of loaves with a sharp knife. Let rise until double, about 45-60 min.
Bake at 400 degrees or until bread looks done.
This bread is amazing! soft, and Great Taste with good fiber!
