This is wonderful bread--dark, moist, and chewy. It's a full-bodied, robust bread that is moist and chewy. It is terrific! 


For a long time, San Francisco Sourdough was our bestselling bread.  Now it is this.  

Your family will absolutely love this bread.  It goes well with a meal; it's fabulous for sandwiches.  

This is an authentic bread, the kind you would find in a New York deli or bakery for a lot more money.  It's a great bread for the price.  Each mix makes a wholesome loaf of nearly two pounds.

Directions for use in the oven

To bake this mix in your oven, follow the directions on the package.

1. Place the mix in your stand-type mixer along with the yeast (if any) and melted butter or oil (if any).  Add water.  Use 110-degree water instead of 80 degrees.

2. With the dough hook, mix slowly until the dough ball forms. Turn the speed to medium high and mix for five to ten minutes until the gluten forms and the dough becomes stretchy and elastic.  

3. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled, about one hour, depending on room temperature.

4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Turn the dough onto a lightly greased or floured work area and form your loaf. Place your dough in a 9 x 5-inch pan or other pan and let rise until the size has doubled and bubbles are about to surface.  

5. When the bread has raised, place the loaf on the center rack of the oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until the bread is done. The internal temperature should reach 190 degrees.  Remove the loaf from the pan and let it cool slightly before slicing.

*NOTE: If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical.  Please use a thermometer to measure water at 80 degrees and we'll guarantee the bread.  If you are baking the bread in the oven, use water that is 110 degrees. 



Ingredients: Enriched wheat flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid), pumpernickel bread base (rye flour, rye meal, salt, caramel color (contains sulfiting agents), spices, sugar, lactic acid, and 2% or less soy oil), white rye flour, dark rye flour, sugar, and yeast.
