I know Pumpernickel is supposed to be heavy and dense but this loaf was neither. This is an American Pumpernickel intended for sandwich bread... Nothing like the original peasant bread.

This is tasty bread but Stephen is right, NOT the real thing even tho it has many of the key ingredients. What you want to look for is: Russian Black bread or Serbian Pumpernickel. And best not do it in a machine, dough is heavy and sticky, use a dough hook or do it by hand.

This is a question: Isn't it better to use breadmaker or instant yeast in a bread machine? Does the active dry yeast not need to be activated before adding to the machine?

If you are using a one-hour or express cycle on your bread machine, you would want to use Instant Yeast or Breadmaker Yeast. Active Dry Yeast is acceptable to use in regular cycle bread machines. You should not proof your Active Dry Yeast before adding it to your bread machine.

Question: What would be the directions if I wanted to make this on the dough setting on my breadmaker and then bake it in the oven? What temperature and for how long? Thanks.

To prepare our Dark Pumpernickel Bread from the Breadmachine recipe as you describe, you will need to bake it in a preheated oven at 350ºF oven for about 30 minutes. Increase the baking time if needed.
