Make Good is Easy

Combine rye flour, 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, undissolved yeast, wheat bran, wheat gluten, brown sugar, caraway seed, salt and coffee in a large mixer bowl.   Heat water, molasses, vinegar, butter and chocolate until very warm (120°F to 130°F).  Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed.  Mix in enough reserved flour to make a soft dough that begins to clean the side of the bowl.

Turn out onto floured surface and knead 5 minutes.  Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Shape into smooth ball; transfer to a greased baking sheet.  Loosely cover dough; let rise 40 minutes, or until almost double in size.  Beat egg white and water; brush on surface of bread. 

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.
