    Very nice indeed! Suggested changes to make it 6 stars: Just 1 tablespoon brown sugar change white flour to brown leave out the cocoa powder extra caraway seeds to taste (up to maybe 5 teaspoons)  -  07 Feb 2016


    Great bread! I don't have a bread machine, so I did the following: 1.) Let the yeast “bloom” in 115 degree water, then added the yeast/water mix and molasses & oil to the dry ingredients, kneading for about five minutes in my KitchenAid. 2.) I made a "rustic loaf" by forming the dough into an oval on a cookie sheet (oiled and sprinkled with cornmeal) and let rise for about an hour. 3.) Baked it at 375 for 40 min and it came out perfect. It looked pretty with some slashes and an egg wash to make it shiny, and it tastes great! Wish I had had some caraway seeds to add, but I will buy some before I make this again as I'm sure the bread would only be better with their addition. Thanks for the recipe - I'll definitely use it again!  -  04 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum. Good stuff. I try to be helpful in my reviews, and for this recipe, the most helpful thing I can say is: make this bread.  -  12 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
