honey wheat black bread
1-1/2 cup  warm water
2 Tbsp  unsalted butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup  honey
2 cup  unbleached bread flour
1-2/3 cup  whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp  cocoa
1 Tbsp  granulated sugar
2 tsp  instant coffee
1-1/2 tsp  salt
1 Tbsp  powdered caramel color (optional)
2-1/4 tsp  instant yeast
manual/mixer method: in a medium-sized mixing bowl, or 
the bowl of your electric mixer, combine all of the 
ingredients. stir the mixture together, using your 
hands, a spoon, or your mixer, till the dough forms a 
shaggy mass that begins to pull away from the sides of 
the bowl. knead the dough, by hand or mixer, for about 10 
minutes, till it's become smooth. transfer it to a 
lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat all sides. cover 
the bowl, and allow the dough to rise until doubled in 
bulk, at least 1 hour. 
bread machine method: place all of the ingredients into the pan of your 
bread machine. program the machine for manual or dough, and press start. 
examine the dough about midway through the kneading cycle; it should be 
soft and smooth, but not overly sticky. adjust the consistency with 
additional water or bread flour, as needed. allow the machine to complete 
its cycle. divide the dough into 8 pieces. shape each piece into a small 
log-shaped loaf. this dough is soft, so use flour or a non-stick spray on 
your hands. sprinkle a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet 
with cornmeal, place the loaves on the sheet, and cover. let the loaves 
rise for 1 hour, or until they look "puffy" but aren't doubled in size. 
bake the bread in a preheated 350 f oven for 20 to 25 minutes. the loaves 
will appear slightly darker on the top when they're done. remove them from 
the oven, and cool on a wire rack. yield: 8 mini-loaves. this bread stays 
moist and delicious for at least four days. if you want a less sweet 
bread, just cut the honey to 1/4 cup and leave out the 1 tablespoon sugar. 
the bread won't stay moist as long, but has very good flavor. 
note: powdered caramel color is available through the 
king arthur flour company at
