Pumpernickel Caraway Bread

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 3-4 hours


1 loaf (1 pound)

This rich, dark bread has an old-fashioned homemade taste that's oh-so-satisfying. Made with molasses and caraway seeds, it's moist and flavorful. My family prefers slices of it slathered with apple butter or cream cheese. -Lorraine Darocha, Berkshire, Massachusetts
