"This is a good old-fashioned pumpernickel bread recipe from my German Cooking cookbook. No bread machine here. Get your hands in there and knead! The aroma of the bread while baking and then the taste of the finished bread will be worth it."

"Looking 'forever' for the perfect pumpernickel bread recipe and, eureka, I've found it! Totally authentic, hearty pumpernickel and easy to make. Thank you for sharing. It's a 'keeper.'"
"I discovered that I'm just not a fan of pumpernickel bread. However my DH loves dark breads so I gave it to him to enjoy. The 4 stars are because of his enjoyment of the bread. Nothing to say against the chef. She has a lot of wonderful recipes and this one is part of the many good ones. If you like pumpernickel bread...then you should indeed make this one. Made for PAC Spring 2012."
"Nice flavor. I cut the recipe in half and it turned out great, one loaf. made for shady ladies team, ZWT7. Yummmmm"
"Old fashioned is right, I feel like "Popeye" with huge strength in my arms now! This is a lovely loaf, I followed another reviewer and made two smaller loaves. this is perfect with a nice, mellow, butter on top, and so loved by all at home. Followed this exactly, and it came out perfectly. Made for ZWT7"
"Unlike any other bread I've ever had. Very yummy and delicious! made for ZWT6 voracious vagabonds!"
"My family loved this bread, great flavor. Followed recipe exactly. This went well with the "recipe #423788" #423788 by ElaineAnn Made for ZWT6 Bread: Oma's Kitchen Challenge. The No- Nonsense Nibblers."
"Great bread! Baked a small loaf in a preheated cast-iron dutch oven and the other is 'fermenting' in the refrigerator; plan to bake today. The only thing I did differently was cut the recipe in half to make two small loaves. I use instant yeast for my bread baking so cut the amount to 1 tablespoon. Also substituted coffee for half of the water. Used my Kitchen Aid to mix and knead. Made for ZWT #6. Thanks for sharing"
"The first time I made this bread it turned out like a rock, it had good favor but it was just heavy.
After adjusting the Yeast, the second loave's turned out great.
For my area, I had to double the yeast
This is yummy bread, next batch I'm going to try adding Coffee, this sounds like something I heard my Russian GrandMother added to her recipe."
"I followed this recipe with no changes. The bread is to sweet and very dense. This was not a keeper!"
"This bread was AWFUL. Followed the recipe exactly; the loaves would not form properly but I could adjust that next time by changing the liquid ratio of the dough. The texture turned out okay, but this bread JUST TASTES HORRIBLE. There is WAY too much molasses in it - it tastes like a Christmas cookie gone wrong. Just horrendous. Luckily I made a dip to go with it that I can drown it in, otherwise I would have thrown it out. Practically inedible on its own."
