Russian Black Bread Recipe

I love dark bread especially during the winter.

I can find rye bread at the grocery store.  Russian Black bread? Not so much.

When I do, Russian Black Bread is too expensive to use as everyday sandwich bread. 

With the help of my trusty bread maker, I learned to make Russian Black Bread for pennies instead of buying it for several dollars.

You will need:

That looks delicious. I've been looking for a good, coarse, hearty dark bread. I'll have to expand the recipe to four loaves. Looks great!

Cranberry Morning - It is a good hearty dark bread. I LOVE using it for grilled cheddar cheese sandwiches.
