~ Rye and White Swirl Bread ~

2 pkgs dry yeast
2 1/4 cups warm water
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 T sugar
1 t salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 T molasses
1 1/2 T cocoa
1 1/2 cups rye flour
vegetable oil cooking spray
1 egg
1 t water
1 T butter or margarine

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 2 1/4 cups
warm water. In a large bowl combine 3 cups
flour, sugar and salt. Add oil and yeast mixture
to dry ingredients; stir until well blended. Place
half of dough in another large bowl. Add molasses
and cocoa in first bowl. Gradually add rye flour;
stir until a soft dough forms. Turn rye dough onto
a lightly floured surface and knead about 5 minutes
or until dough becomes smooth and elastic. Place in
a large bowl sprayed with cooking spray, turning
once to coat top of dough. Cover both bowls and
let rise in a warm place 1 1/4 hours or until
doubled in size. Turn rye and white dough separately
onto a lightly floured surface and punch down.
Divide each dough in half. Using a floured rolling
pin, roll half of white dough into a 10 inch square.
Roll half of rye dough into a 9 inch square. Brush
any surface flour from dough. In a small bowl,
beat egg and 1 teaspoon water until foamy. Brush
egg mixture on top of white square. Place rye
square on white square. Brush egg mixture on top
of rye square. Roll up dough tightly. Pinch ends
to seal dough. Place dough, seam side down, in a
greased 5x9 inch loaf pan. Spray top of dough with
cooking spray, cover, and let rise in a warm place
1 hour or until doubled in size. Repeat with
remaining white and rye dough. Preheat oven to 350F.
Bake 28 - 32 minutes or until bread is golden brown
and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans.
Brush tops of loaves with butter. Serve warm or
cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
