Looking for Squaw Bread

There use do to be a place in town that sold the most delicious squaw bread.  This bread had a tight crumb, and was really dark brown through and through. Dark, like mahagony, or Cherry wood.  It was a little sweet, but still very savory. Anyone have a good recipe?

My humble recipe:

Mine did not have the dark hue that typically comes from adding caramel colouring (which I believe you can get from KA)...simply add this to my recipe and you should have the colour you desire.

Cheers
