Dark Rye Bread Cooking Instructions

In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar or
honey. Let sit until bubbly. Add molasses, maple syrup, soft butter,
salt & cocoa, beat well. Add 3 cups, bread flour & beat 2 minutes with
an electric mixer or at least 200 strokes by hand. Add 3 cups rye
flour & mix until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface & knead until smooth & elastic.
Sprinkle with a little white flour if it remains too sticky to handle.
When dough becomes elastic, stop kneading even if dough remains a
little clingy to fingers.

Place the dough in a buttered bowl, turn to coat all sides. Cover &
let rise until double in bulk. Punch dough down, turn out onto board,
knead a few times to press out air bubbles, cut in half & cover with
towel to let riest 10-15 minutes.

Shape the dough into two round or oval ooaves & place on a greased
baking sheet which has been dusted with cornmeal. You may cut a cross
or other design in the tops with a sharp knife. Cover & let rise until
almost double in size. Brush with glaze. Bake in preheated oven 375
degrees for 15 minutes. Turn oven to 350 degrees for another 20-25
minutes or until bottoms sound hollow when tapped. Cool on rack.

Yield 2 loaves.
