A dark Russian rye bread made in the ABM. This uses applesauce for the fat, but vegetable oil can be used instead. Cook times will vary, depending on your machine.

We really loved this bread. I used it to make toast this morning, and look forward to having it at lunch in a sandwich using leftover Christmas ham. I made it as written except I used vegetable oil instead of the applesauce, and bread flour instead of the all-purpose flour. This makes a slightly dense loaf with a nice texture that slices easily. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
