Soft Pumpernickel Bread (abm)

"Just found this on the internet and can't wait to try it. The poster said that it reminds her of the bread at the Outback Steakhouse and that it has a great flavor and soft texture. Uses a combination of three flours. Cook time is according to your bread machine."

    Yummy! My husband recently informed me that pumpernickel bread was missing from his life, so the recipe browsing began. I liked that this one was fairly simple and also low fat, so away I went. I did double the molasses to make it darker and more pumpernickelly, and it came out wonderfully. I let it rise overnight in the fridge, then baked for 30 minutes in a glass loaf pan. Mmm. Thanks, Marie. It's a keeper. **Update: I have made this a half dozen times in the past couple of months, and it makes really excellent dinner rolls. One thing to be careful of is the baking time. This bread is incredibly dense, and I really recommend using a digital thermometer to test for doneness. I have had good luck baking it to 206-209 degrees, which usually takes between 30 and 40 minutes. **Bonus: I used this dough to make a ham/swiss/sauerkraut stromboli for dinner last night and it was so good IT IS KILLING ME. I can't wait to make it again.

    Good, easy. I took it out of the Abm, made two small loaves, and baked for about 17 minutes. Used more molasses and a bit of cocoa for color. Very nice dough to work with.

    Initially made this because I needed it for another recipe, but will make this again. Thnx for posting, Marie. Made for KcK's Forum.

    Another wonderful bread recipe! We added 1tsp caraway seed and replaced rye with wheat flour. Excellent slightly sweet bread. Not quite a true pumpernickel but you could add cocoa powder and more molasses if you wanted to get closer to pumpernickel. This one is excellent as-is.

    Awesome bread recipe. My dad raved about it. He even gave his brother and wife a little taste. I say little cause he wanted the rest for himself. Will be making again and again. Thanks for posting.
