the recipe was a bit different from the usual pumpernickel recipes. sure it called for rye flour and caraway seeds. it wouldn't be pumpernickel without them. but this recipe also called for yogurt, espresso powder, unsweetened chocolate and prune lekvar. because i was curious to try the combination, i followed the ingredient list closely with one exception; i did not have any prune lekvar and did not have time to make it so i used what i had, pumpkin butter. funny thing is, it was unnoticeable! i plan to make this bread again but may just use plain pumpkin puree. to see what the other bakers came up with, visit the tuesdays with dorie page.
now that's some fine bread with butter!
time to step away from the table...
