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.)


Hi Ginny,

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.
