Pumpernickel Loaf (Baking with Julia)

Pumpernickel Loaf in the breadmaker © www.foodbabylife.com


So I had to cheat a little with this week's recipe. Seeing as I have no mixer and I had a baby 2 weeks ago (and am therefore not at all interested in kneading bread when it is compared with pumping iron!) I made my pumpernickel loaf in the breadmaker.

Luckily the recipe book which came with my breadmaker included a rye and caraway bread so I was able to simply adjust it to be more like this week's recipe. I added coffee, cocoa, yoghurt and molasses and was really pleased with the result. I was intending to just make the dough and then shape and bake the loaf in the oven but with 3 kids including a newborn demanding to be fed that just wasn't going to happen!

I loved the complex flavours in this loaf and it was fabulous slightly warm with lots of cream cheese. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

  2. Great idea! And it looks great. Working smarter not harder! What a trooper! I toasted mine and put cream cheese on it too. A co-worker mentioned spinach dip as the usual go to for pumpernickel...totally forgot about that. So now I am putting the other loaf in the freezer and pulling it out at Christmas, with the dip!
