German Bread
What You Need:
  • 2 packages quick-rising yeast
  • 1 cups tepid water (about 105F)
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • cup dark molasses
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose unsifted flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a large bowl, combine the yeast and warm water; let stand until softened, about 5 minutes. Add rye and whole-wheat flours, molasses, cocoa, caraway seeds, and salt. With an electric mixer, or heavy spoon, beat dough until it is mixed very well.

    2. If using a dough hook on a machine such, mix in 1 cup all-purpose flour. Knead until the dough is elastic and pulls cleanly from the bowl, about 5 minutes. (If needed, add more all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon at a time.)

    3. If mixing by hand, stir in 1 cup all-purpose flour with a heavy spoon. Scrape the dough onto a floured board. Knead, adding as little flour as possible, until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place the dough on a plastic counter and cover with a large stainless-steel bowl. Allow the dough to rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.

    4. Sprinkle the cornmeal in the center of a baking sheet; set aside. Punch down the dough. On a lightly floured board, knead the dough to shape into a ball. Place the dough on the cornmeal and press to form a 6-inch round. Let the dough rise in a warm place until almost double, about 30 minutes.

    5. Sprinkle a bit of additional flour on top of the loaf. Bake in a 350F oven until the loaf is a rich, dark brown, about 30 minutes, or until the bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    To Make: 1 large loaf
