A soft and delicious rye bread that is made easy in your bread machine. Perfect for savoury ham sandwiches for a tasty change from the norm, or toasted with soup.
This makes a smaller loaf. I didn't have oat bran, so I used toasted wheat germ. I also didn't have caroway seed, so I substituted fennel seed. It turned out GREAT!!! The whole family loved it. Thank you for awonderful recipe! - 30 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent black bread! Taste and texture are great; moist, not spongy, won't fall apart when you spread butter on it. Even my 2-year-old grandson likes it a lot. The fact that I no longer have to buy this type of bread from "specialty bakeries" makes it that much better. - 23 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband said this didn't taste like the Black Bread he'd had while stationed in Germany, but that it was still very good. I don't have a bread machine, so I made it by hand. The crust is crispy and the inside tender and firm with a good texture. The kids loved it, too! - 06 Apr 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
