Homemade Pumpernickel Loaf

Urban Hippie Pumpernickel Bread

Why would you go out and buy a bread when you can spend 4 hours making your own at home? Jkjkjkjk  It does take awhile but a lot of that is hands-off time; like bread rising, and cooking.

I made this loaf in my bread maker but I had no idea if my yeast was still good so it was a big gamble. I waited 4 hours to find out and yes, my bread did in fact rise.

I love fresh breads and while some bakeries make amazing loafs, it's always nice to make your own.  I used a bread maker with this recipe and it turned out fantastic.  

If you have a bread maker, I highly suggest you try this. You can also make this by hand very easily.
