This Russian bread recipe has a nice crisp crust and soft cake-like texture; unlike any other dark bread you may have tried. Wonderful with onion powder.

Just add 1 teaspoon to the mix. You may also use molasses instead of dark corn syrup. Let's get baking this beauty.


HOMEMADE RUSSIAN BLACK BREAD

1-1/2 cups warm water
1 packet active dry yeast
1 TBS homemade brown sugar, packed

2 TBS homemade cider vinegar
2-1/2 cups flour
1 cup rye flour
1 tsp salt
2 TBS butter, melted
2 TBS dark corn syrup
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp instant coffee granules
2 tsp caraway seed

1 egg white, beaten
kosher salt

Dissolve yeast and brown sugar in the warm water. Let sit to proof the yeast.

Sift the flour, then measure, and sift with salt and cocoa powder. Beat butter, vinegar, corn syrup and coffee granules until granules are dissolved. Add caraway seed and proofed yeast mixture.

Add flour mixture and stir well. Turn out on a floured surface and knead thoroughly, mixing in as little flour as possible.

Place in a greased bowl and grease the top of the dough. Cover and and put a warm place to rise until doubled in size.

Punch down and form it into a large round loaf. Place on a baking sheet, cover and allow to rise a second time until doubled in size.

Cut deep "vents" in a star pattern across the top. Brush egg white on top of the loaf and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake for about 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

You may also divide the dough in half and bake in two greased loaf pans.

1 pkg active dry yeast
1-1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1/2 cups raisins
2 eggs, well beaten

Scald milk and cool to warm. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm milk and let stand for 20 minutes to proof.

Add 1-1/2 cups flour to the proofed yeast and mix well until smooth. Let dough sit in a warm area until doubled in size.

Add well beaten eggs, sugar, melted butter, raisins, salt and remaining flour and cinnamon. Mix well and knead thoroughly on a floured surface; mixing in as little flour as possible.

Let stand until doubled in size. Divide into 2 equal parts for 2 loaves; cut each loaf into 3 equal parts. Roll the parts into strips about 12 inches long and tapering to a point at each end; press ends together and braid.

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees and grease a baking sheet.

Place on a buttered baking sheet. Cover and let stand until doubled in size. Bake for 30 minutes. Ice with the following:

Icing

Made the recipe?  I would love to see it!  Post it on my Facebook page or any social media platform and use the hashtag #misshomemade  Thanks!



NOTE:

Some of my recipes call for oil and for most of my life I used canola and vegetable oil as everyone else did.

I have changed to using organic and unrefined coconut oil, and olive oil. Organic butter and ghee is another option. Thanks!

Note: the main villains of hydrogenated oils that you want to stay away from are corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil and canola oil.
