  To Susan, the creater of the the cheesecake factory dark bread recipe.  This recipe you created,  the one which contains,  coffee,  and I think molasses,  or other ingredients that I cannot think of offhand.  How many pounds is it,  so I can know what to set my bread machine at.  My bread machine will make 1 1/2  or 2 pound loaves. Which size  ( l 1/2, or 2 lb.) will this recipe make?   I would appreciate an answer for this thank you. 


Thanks,  Laurie K.

Dear Susan,  I had asked a question previously and had sent it to Freshloaf.  I had asked how big a loaf does your recipe for the dark bread loaf,  that you invented from the cheesecake factory,  does this make?  My bread machine will do 1 1/2 pound loaves and 2 lb. loaves.  I am referring to the recipe with coffee granules in it, and I think cocoa and maybe molasses.  Anyways,  you invented it or something in response to a question about the recipe for the dark bread from the cheesecake factory.    Again,  how big a loaf does this make?  1 1/2 pounds or 2 lbs.  Please answer me if you can.  The last time I had asked the question,  I had a response from Freshloaf,  that gave me no answer to this.   Please answer me if you can.  Thanks,  Laurie K.

Makes right at about 2 pounds(32 ounces) of dough. Maybe just a smidge over(33 ounces, give or take). Your machine will be able to handle this with no problem, on the 2 pound setting. No coffee in this one however.

1 1/2 cups warm milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons molasses
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup rye flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Place ingredients into the bread machine in order suggested by the manufacturer.
2 Use the the Light Crust or Whole Wheat settings. Start the machine.
