I cut this recipe in half, only because I didn't need a monster loaf. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make this bread. I had everything but rye flour, I used a mixture of wheat flour and bread flour to make up the difference. I proofed the yeast with the warm coffee, sugar and molasses for 10 minutes, then added all the dry. I kneaded the dough with my hook for five minutes, than set it to rise for an hour in a covered greased bowl. After it doubled, I formed it and set it to rise in my loaf pan for another hour or until it doubled again. This was done at about a half hour at 350*. The whole house smells homey and wonderful. I couldn't wait to dig into it. Very tasty bread. Chewy and dense. Really a snap to make. I liked the other steakhouse bread from this site a little better, not by much. I think the molasses combined with the coffee and cocoa was a little too deep for me. I like the use of honey a little more.
