RUSSIAN BLACK BREAD
1 Pkg Yeast
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups medium rye flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unprocessed bran flakes
1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds (optional)
(Use ingredients at room temperature.)
Heat the following over low heat till chocolate and butter melt, stirring
frequently. Or heat in microwave on half power till chocolate and butter
melt. Cool to between 105 and 115 degrees.
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons molasses
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
For best results, add all ingredients into the pan in the order listed.
This recipe works well with added raisins. I've also substituted the bran
with 1/4 cup white flour.
