dense as a brick European bread recipe?

I see it on the international shelf every once in a while - that dense, nutty, chewy bread that supposedly can be stored for months. I was told that's because it's baked for hours and hours. Most people I know hate the stuff. I love it. Any recipes?

:oops: I've only made it by accident...never on purpose nor do I have a clue as to what went wrong!

I think what you're looking for is also called "Journeybread" or "Johnnycakes" and has sunflower seeds in it or other nutmeats and is made with whole wheat flour or a combination of whole wheat and potato flour.

By any chance does the bread you seek have a somewhat sweet flavor?

It's not Journeybread, though the texture might be similar. I've heard it called simply "Schwarzbrot," but it is not what I think of as black bread. The store here sells it as "Fitness Bread" in the international aisle. It's a bit on the sour side and nutty, but I don't find it sweet. oh well, the conundrum remains. . . se la vie.

ramydam;
While I don't know the answer myself I am willing to bet our resident bread baker, Old coot, will be able to help.

Hi ramy,

Is that bread very dark? With whole kernels in it? Is it similar to this one?
