Pumpernickel Bread

Traditional German bread referred to as a "box bread" or "kastenbrot" by German bakers. This bread can be made with a combination of coarse ground rye and wheat flour (mostly rye and less wheat) or all rye flour combined with molasses for flavor and color. The ingredients are then placed in an enclosed pan and baked slowly in steam to give the loaf a very dense and moist crumb, as well as a solid crust. Dark in color, this bread provides a somewhat sour flavor that goes well with beer, cheese and hearty meats.
