Stone Oven Wholesale Bakery’s American Pumpernickel is hand-crafted using dark rye flour, cocoa, and molasses which give it its signature deep brown color. Also referred to as Black Bread, this bread contains ground caraway seeds for even more flavor.
American Pumpernickel is very different from its German cousin. German Pumpernickel is made with whole rye berries and cracked rye–no wheat flour is used. It is baked for up to 24 hours usually in a Pullman Pan which keeps it from drying out. It is very dense and has no crust.
American Pumpernickel is actually closer to Rye Bread. Ours contains white and whole wheat flour, sour dough starter, and baker’s yeast. This ensures a hearty crust with a chewy, soft crumb. It is finished with poppy seeds which add wonderful crunch.
- Offered as 1# and 2# loaves, 2# batard, pan, and 14oz baguette
