Kev’s Bread Machine Pumpernickel
~ Kev ~
Patty sent out a whole slew of Kev’s Bread Machine recipes to everyone at Christmas – in 1993! Here’s what Kev has to say about this Pumpernickel: It’s a “cannonball” recipe (i.e., heavy in the bread machine) but really good. We make it most often when having company over and do little hors d’oeuvre things with it usually — thin slices, quartered, with cheese or smoked salmon on it. It’s great in winter, say as an open-faced hot ham and cheese sandwich. Or as toast.
