Light Cocoa Rye Bread 黑麦面包

This rye bread recipe added more bread flour to give it a lighter texture and the cocoa powder not only give the bread a  deep brown colour, but also enhance its taste. In spite of the simple ingredients involved, the texture is surprisingly soft, moist and slightly chewy :)
