This is the perfect fall bread, I am so happy with the results of my labor! I love the deep rich chocolaty color too! I have big plans for this bread over the next couple of days too - I'm just afraid it may not last!!
For bread machine:
- 1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees F.)
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp molasses
- 1 Tbsp canola oil
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 cup rye flour
- 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp ground coffee
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins, optional
When dough cycle is finished, take dough out and shape into a loaf, then place in a greased bread pan. Optional, add dried fruit 1 hour into dough cycle. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Right before placing the loaf in the oven, splash 1 oz water in the oven for steam. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
