    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    rolls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, heat water, molasses, oil, and baking chocolate until very warm (120F - 130F degrees). The chocolate does not need to be completely melted.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, blend all-purpose flour, bran, sugar, coffee, salt, onion powder, fennel seed, and yeast at low speed until moistened. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
    3. 3
      Stir in, by hand, the rye flour.
    4. 4
      On well-floured working surface, knead the dough, adding 1/2 to 1 1/2 cups additional all-purpose flour as needed, until dough is smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Dough will be slightly sticky.
    5. 5
      Place dough in a greased bowl, and then turn the dough so the greased side is up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until not quite doubled in size (about 45-60 minutes).
    6. 6
      Generously grease (not oil) two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans or cookie sheets. Punch down dough.
    7. 7
      For Rolls: divide dough into 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place in prepared round cake pans.
    8. 8
      For Loaves: divide dough in half and shape each half into rounds. Place in prepared pans.
    9. 9
      Cover and let rise in warm place until not quite doubled in size (30-45 minutes).
    10. 10
      Heat oven to 375F degrees. If desired, brush rolls or loaves with mixture of 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon water.
    11. 11
      Bake rolls for 35-40 minutes. Bake loaves for 45-55 minutes, or until crust is dark brown and loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped.
    12. 12
      Immediately remove from pans and allow to cool.

      Yes this is a heavy bread, but very flavorful. I made 1/2 recipe and 1 loaf. Good with cheese. Would make a nice "party" bread if made in smaller loaves.

      I reduced the amounts to make one loaf and used the dough cycle on the bread machine for mixing. This is a very heavy, dense bread but has a good flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
