Pumpernickel bread is a dense, dark rye bread that is intensely flavorful. This do it yourself mix recipe can be prepared ahead of time and tossed into the pantry until it’s needed.

Pumpernickel Bread:

2 cups bread flour
1 ½ cups rye flour
1 ½ cups wheat flour
2 tsp salt
¼ cup cocoa powder
2 tsp instant coffee
2 ¼ tsp yeast

Measure all into large Vacuum Seal Bag or ziploc bag

Place Seeds in Separate baggie:
2 tbsp caraway seeds

Makes 1 mix

To Use:
1 pkg mix
1 ½ cups Very Warm water
½ cup molasses
2 tbsp salad oil

Add yeast to 1/2 of Dry mix, be sure to stir well. Add water, molasses and salad oil and blend completely. Let sit 5-7 minutes. Continue adding remaining mix until a stiff dough forms.

Knead well, place in greased bowl, covered on a warm surface until doubled. (About 2 hours).

Using wet hands (don’t use flour), quickly shape the dough into a ball by stretching the surface of the dough around to the bottom on all four sides, rotating the ball a quarter-turn as you go. Then form an oval-shaped loaf. Allow to rest and rise on a cornmeal-covered pan for 40 minutes.

Using a pastry brush, paint the top crust with cornstarch wash and sprinkle with the caraway seeds, if using. Slash the loaf with deep parallel cuts, using a serrated bread knife.

Bake @ 375 oven for 45-50 minutes (Crust will be deep brown)

  1. There’s a slight difference between pumpernickel and rye bread. Typically, pumpernickel bread contains a high amount of rye flour and only a little wheat flour. In contrast to the flour used to make pumpernickel, regular rye flour is made from the endosperm of the rye berry, after its outer layers of bran and germ have been removed.
