    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    In Germany this bread would be called black bread (schwartzbrot). The recipe comes from KLM Airlines. I clipped it out of the paper many years ago. It's really easy to make and very healthy.

      Delicious flavor. I believe that the next time we make this, we'll use brewed coffee as part of the liquid to increase the depth of flavor a little. We used Hodgson's Mill Mixed Whole Grain cereal and Brer Rabbit Mild Molasses.

      This is a lovely bread. I do agree it has the taste/consistancy of a bran muffin. I used a 6 grain hot cereal mix. This is great with a bit of butter and some strawberry jam!

      This was fun to make and tasted really great too! We needed a side dish for our Halloween feast and I couldn't help trying this recipe out as "Tombstone bread!" On any day, however, this bread is a wonderful quick way to make something good. My husband and I both think that it tastes a little more like a bran muffin than pumpernickel, and we agree that it is really more like a cake than a bread in texture, but once we put aside our preconceived notions of "bread" we really enjoyed it. I think maybe a small amount of salt might have added to the flavor a little as well, and I might try that next time I make this. Can't wait to try it with some toppings as recommended by other reviewers!
