      This made two beautiful loaves of bread. This was a different experience for us since neither of us have ever had Pumpernickel bread and didn't really know what to expect. Found it to have a very bold taste with the rye and caraway seeds dominating the flavors. I could not find the dark rye flour so my bread didn't turn out as dark as it probably should have. Made pumpernickel croutons for Cdb's Spinach Salad Thanks Kaarin for sharing. :)

      My daughter was looking for a pumpernickel bread recipe to taste as great as the one she craved from her bakery. When we tried this one she knew we had found it! All her friends and family from kids on up raved and became addicted to it just like its author had bragged ! A true find!

      This is loaded with flavor! Great dark bread! I did put in loaf pans instead of making round loaves. I also couldn't find wheat bran (still looking), so I crushed up some wheat bran flakes in blender. It worked great!
