Bread Machine Dark Mock Rye Bread

Bread Machine Dark Mock Rye Bread

I wanted some dark rye bread and didin’t have any rye flour so I decided to make it using whole wheat flour.

Here is the resulting recipe. It makes a dark loaf that looks like and tastes like dark rye. Most of the flavor comes from the caraway seeds. It is really good for sandwiches and has a crumb like honey wheat bread.


1 1/4 cups (296.3 g) water
2 Tbsp (42 g) molasses or dark corn syrup
1 Tbsp (14 g) vegetable oil
1 tsp (6 g) salt
2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (180 g) whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp (15 g) yellow corn meal
3 Tbsp (38 g) packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp (5.4 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp (9 g) caraway seed (or to taste)
2 1/4 tsp or 1 packet (7 g) bread machine yeast


Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.

Select the BASIC or WHITE BREAD cycle, 1 1/2 pounds and press START.

Monitor the first few minutes of kneading. If necessary to form a smooth, non-sticky dough ball, add more flour or water a tablespoon at a time, as needed.

Ingredient weights are also given in grams for those that prefer to weigh recipes.

Makes one 1 1/2 lb loaf.

Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Don’t mention it. You should receive my bill shortly. :smiley:

What bill?

The bill for my recipe. You don’t think I post these for free do you? All these ingredients cost money and so does the gas for the stove. :grin:
