This makes a smaller loaf. I didn't have oat bran, so I used toasted wheat germ. I also didn't have caroway seed, so I substituted fennel seed. It turned out GREAT!!! The whole family loved it. Thank you for awonderful recipe!

I thought this is too soft to be called European bread. This is rather American style sandwitch bread. If you like soft textured bread, you will like it. I am not going to make this again.

Excellent black bread! Taste and texture are great; moist, not spongy, won't fall apart when you spread butter on it. Even my 2-year-old grandson likes it a lot. The fact that I no longer have to buy this type of bread from "specialty bakeries" makes it that much better.

My husband said this didn't taste like the Black Bread he'd had while stationed in Germany, but that it was still very good. I don't have a bread machine, so I made it by hand. The crust is crispy and the inside tender and firm with a good texture. The kids loved it, too!

This is really good black bread . My family sat down and ate the whole loaf in about 20 minutes .

This is one of very few recipes that comes out nice in my Sunbeam breadmaker. It had nice flavor and texture. The loaf had a nice shape also. I don't keep oat bran in the pantry so substituted cornmeal with good results

It's great to have a black bread choice for the bread machine. This is a little strong, so I cut the cocoa a little, and the vinegar. It is very flavorful. Thanks.

Fantastic! I baked this in the oven at 350 degrees for half an hour and it was perfect. Everyone who ate it loved it. This bread takes me back to the Middle Ages when this was the common bread. Delicious.
