I was personally disappointed in this recipe. I didn't realize that I was making a very dark bread. If I had seen the photo before i made it I would not have made it. When I was putting the ingredients in....I thought, "Why does this recipe have both molasses and cocoa in it? This will not be anything like the light rye breads I ate when I lived in Germany." Alas, it is even darker than the photo reflects. My DH is happy...he loves dark breads...I'm not a fan. Sorry but a 4 isn't so bad...DH would have given a 5 and I would have given a 3...so I compromised and made it a 4. I'm sure that my GGreat Grandparents would have loved it. Made for the Oma Challenge in the ZWT #6 game of 2010.
I made as posted. Love the color but mine also fell and that is the reason why I am not going to take a picture. I got about 3 nice slices off of one end. I did set the crust to LIGHT hoping that would help it not collapse. It is very dense which is fine but think it is a bit bitter. I think the recipe is probably supposed to be a two pound loaf and next time would try two changes-increase the molasses to 1/4 cup and decrease the yeast to 2 1/4 teaspoons. Danke ~SarahBeth~ for sharing. Made for ZWT#6.
This was a perfect Rye bread. Nice and dense. It didn't rise a whole lot, but I think that was part of it's goodness! Made for ZWT 6 and the Looney Spoon Phoodies!
