I wanted some dark rye bread and didin't have any rye flour so I decided to make it using whole wheat flour. Here is the resulting recipe. It makes a dark loaf that looks like and tastes like dark rye. Most of the flavor comes from the caraway seeds. It is really good for sandwiches and has a crumb like honey wheat bread.
