This bread is very good with any buffet, or with Black Forest Ham and cheese. Easy and tasty..

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Follow bread machine instructions.
  2. I alway watch the bread kneading and mixing, when its in a nice soft round ball, you know that the water to flour is correct.
  3. If its not nice and round but floppy it needs more flour.
  4. If its too hard and dry or mixer is having a hard time, it needs more water.
  5. After cycle ends, remove and cool on rack.
  6. Allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.

I am not a real fan of limpa bread in general, but I thought this was good. The use of all-purpose and rye flour ensures a tender crumb, since there is less gluten than in bread flour. The bread is very aromatic.

This is a light and tender bread that is bursting with lovely flavours. I prefer to just use the dough cycle and then bake the bread in a regular oven. Thanks for a great recipe! Made for ZWT3.

This wasn't missing anything! Molasses is for DARK rye. Limpa is a light bread, and the flavor in this with the orange and seeds, is very tasty! Had this with a barley soup, but can't wait to have it toasted for breakfast. Thanks for posting!
