This is a light rye bread. It uses flat beer in the dough....so drink half and let the rest sit out! It has a slightly sweet taste.
- 3⁄4 cup beer, flat
- 3⁄8 cup water
- 2 1⁄2 cups bread flour
- 1 cup rye flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons shortening, like Crisco
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 3 teaspoons dry yeast
- Place all ingredients in bread pan according to your machines instructions. Select Light Crust setting.
- Allow bread to cool l hour before slicing.
Used regular all purpose flour plus a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Good strong rye flavor, yet a light bread. Made for ZWT4. Just a tip if you don't have any flat beer--if you heat your beer to a simmer and let it cool, it will be flat--faster than just leaving it out.
Made for ZWT4 Beverage Challenge - Bier ist Nahrung .I am so glad I tried this bread. Added 4 tbsp flax seeds, and 4 tbsp sunflowerseed, both because I like the taste and texture of that, but also because it makes it better for you. Great recipe. Love this bread toasted with sharp cheddar.Thanks Mary.
Nice and light, but full of flavor. Made pretty much as directed. Thanks for the tip on heating the beer if you don't have flat beer. Made for ZWT
