      Combine rye and all-purpose flour, set aside. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix 2 1/3 cups of the flour mixture, sugar, salt, cereal, caraway seeds, instant coffee granules, onion powder, fennel seed and yeast.
    2. 2
      Combine water, vinegar, molasses, chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Warm over low heat to temperature of 1050 to 1150°F Gradually add to dry ingredients.

      Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
    4. 4
      Add ½ cup flour mixture. Beat at high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough additional flour mixture to make soft dough.
    5. 5
      Turn out on a lightly floured board. Cover dough with bowl. Let rest 15 minutes. Then knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 to 15 minutes.

      Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and ½ cup cold water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 1 minute. As soon as bread is baked, brush cornstarch mixture over tops of loaves. Return bread to oven. Bake 2 to 3 minutes or until glaze is set. Remove from pans. Cool on wire racks.

      Great flavor but mine didn't raise properly. There should be a second rise for the loaf after forming. Made 1 loaf-- 1/2 recipe.
