Hi, Iíve been looking for years for a recipe (or even a reference!) to the
old (1960-70s) round, pre-sliced, moist Van De Kamp Rye bread. It was called
either Russian Rye or Pumpernickel rye (I think the former). It was dark, not
very sour, had no caraway or other seeds in it, did not have a strong molasses
taste, and contained crushed grains. Any help would be appreciated!!!!!
(I did talk with a 50+ year old man whose dad was a Dutch immigrant and worked
in the Van De Kamp bakery in CA for years, and who remembered the dark round
rye bread as well, but his father died and left no recipes.)
Sorry, I could not find any recipe or reference to this bread. There are no actual Van de Kamp's recipes
available at all, and I could not find a copycat recipe or a "tastes like" recipe or any mention at all
of the rye bread that you describe.
