This recipe has earned the goodfibes™ seal indicating it is a good source of fiber.
2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 package Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
2-1/4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
2-1/4 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1-1/2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Minced Onions
1-1/2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Whole Caraway Seed
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons dark molasses
4 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups medium rye flour
2 eggs, divided use

Combine 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, brown sugar, undissolved yeast, cocoa, coffee, onion, caraway seed and salt in a large bowl. Heat water, molasses, vinegar and oil until very warm (120° to 130°F); stir into dry ingredients. Stir in rye flour, 1 egg and enough remaining all-purpose flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Dough will be slightly sticky. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half; roll each to 26-inch rope. Twist ropes together. Form into ring; join ends, pinching to seal. Transfer to greased large baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Lightly beat remaining egg; brush on wreath. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
