Dark Rye (Pumpernickel) Bread for the Bread Machine.

We're having avocado sandwiches for supper tonight and I wanted a nice bread to go with them, so I made a loaf of Pumpernickel. I didn't have any caraway seeds, so added a handful of sesame and sunflower seeds as well as some oat flakes. I did this when the machine beeped 3 times. This will give the bread more fiber and taste. I made a 2 lb. loaf with a medium crust. and followed the recipe for my Bread man Bread Machine. I've listed the ingredients as I put them into the machine. The estimated time on the bread machine might vary for yours, my bread machine sets the time automatically.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all the ingredients in the order given or as per your bread maker's instructions. I think the order is pretty standard, just make sure the yeast is the last thing you add and that it doesn't touch the liquids.
  2. I used the Whole Wheat Bread setting as suggested in the recipe.
  3. When the bread is done, remove the bread pan and cool for a few minutes, then turn it out onto a metal rack to cool complete before cutting.
  4. Bon Appetit!

Simple to prepare and a wonderful flavor! It garners the much-coveted ~Tasty Dish~ Seal of Approval. Served with split pea soup! PS I skipped the wheat gluten. Thanks for posting! cg
