I did not care for this. I love pumpernickel bread and this was dry and kind of tasteless.

Very good and not at all as heavy as most pumpernickel breads are, especially when baked in a bread machine.

This was an excellent bread. The only thing that I had happen, was that the top fell in. But I will try it again and make some adjustments. It was that good.

I loved the rich flavor and great texture of this bread! I changed the recipe to be like my boyfriend's favorite bread at a fancy chain supermarket's bakery. I prepared the dough on the dough cycle of my bread machine (needed a little extra flour). At the end of the cylce I added about a cup of raisins and started the machine again to mix until the raisins were distributed. I then let the dough rise for one hour in a ball on a lightly greased 10 inch cast-iron frying pan. I baked the bread on the frying pan for 33 minutes at 375. It made a delicious bolle. Thanks for a keeper!

Very good bread, I used less molasses thou and add caraway seeds (1 Tbs) and 1 tsp of instant coffee powder, the coffee gives a very good flavor and goes very well with the chocolate.

Everyone loved this, I followed the recipe except didn't have any rye flour so I used whole wheat. I think I will add honey or sugar next time as it looked sweeter than it tasted.
