Marbled Rye Sandwich Loaf

I have been reading different recipes for about a week on rye breads and pumpernickel. This is the result of coming up with my own version for sandwich bread and I was quite happy with it, It is nice and soft with an open crumb for a rye hybrid I'll call it. It tastes of a nice lighter seeded rye with caraway seeds. It uses about 25% total rye flour, and the rest bread flour. I used cocoa powder for the darker dough.

Hello from British Columbia!  What a beautiful looking loaf!  Now, if we could only have a great long sniff and a taste.  Any chance we could pry some tips from you as to how you made this look so good (and maybe the recipe)?  Thanks for sharing.  Cheers!

Let me know if you have any questions! I mainly made this for myself to understand but a happy to share :) It's basically the combination of maybe 10 different recipes I liked and also merging it into my sandwich load recipe to create something soft but still a good rye tatse. Next I am going to make it with sourdough for some extra tang by simply replacing yeast with ~25% starter

Thank you so much!  I usually avoid caraway like the plague, except when it comes to rye bread, so am always happy to add another recipe to my ever-growing stash.  Cheers!
