Dark Rye Bread

Rating: Unrated
Very good!!! The extra sugar makes for a better rise.

Pumpernickel Rye Bread

Rating: Unrated
This is a hearty bread. Mix it in the bread machine (or stand mixer) but bake it in the oven. I recommend baking in the oven instead of the machine because the loaf is fuller and the top is much nicer. I hope you enjoy it.

Danish Spiced Rye Bread (Sigtebrod)

Rating: Unrated
This is a traditional Danish rye bread made easy with the use of a bread machine. (It can be made using traditional methods, of course.) The bread is highly spiced so makes a perfect accompaniment for Danish open faced sandwiches (smorebrod) and is usually seen served on a Christmas holiday table. Perfect for those people who like a spiced twist to their daily bread.

Russian Black Bread

Rating: Unrated
I have been looking for a good Russian Black Bread recipe. This one is the closest I have come. The vinegar adds a bit of a bite, but believe me, with cheese it is marvelous.

Authentic German Bread (Bauernbrot)

Rating: Unrated
Here is a great recipe for authentic German Sourdough Bread. This bread tastes almost exactly like the bread we buy back home in Bavaria, Germany. There, to this day, they bake their bread in a very old stone oven in the middle of a small village, once every 2 weeks. They bake a whole bunch at once, and then you can buy it and freeze extras until the next baking day. It's the best German bread I know!
