Here’s a hearty bread to serve with steaks, salads, or soups. Sweet, dark, and rich. Yum.
In a large bowl, mix together yeast, cocoa, brown sugar, salt, and rye flour.
In a glass measuring cup, combine warm water, molasses, and oil. Mix into the rye flour mixture. Add enough all-purpose flour to make a smooth dough that is no longer sticky.
Knead dough for 4-5 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl and cover. Allow to rise in warm place until double, about 1 hour.
Punch down dough and divide in half. Roll each into a torpedo-shaped loaf. Place loaves a few inches apart on a cookie sheet that has been greased and dusted with wheat germ. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon wheat germ on top of each loaf. Let rise in warm place until double, about 30 minutes.
Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 30-35 minutes until crust makes a hollow sound when tapped. Brush hot loaves with melted butter.
Makes 2 loaves.
