Herbs And Spices - Russian Black Bread

There's a nice tangy bite to this hearty dark rye that still has a tender crumb, thanks to the wheat flour. Cocoa and coffee powders darken the loaf, and caraway and fennel seeds impart just a bit of licorice flavor. It can be made in your bread machine or with a stand mixer.
