Update: I made this bread again today, this time measuring everything carefully. I did not use a bread machine. I have reached the conclusion that the other two reviewers are correct, and there is too much flour in the recipe. I was not able to use the full amount of flour, and, if I had, I'm sure the dough would have been terribly dry. I would not recommend this recipe to someone who just puts the ingredients into a bread machine and turns it on. Review of Feb. 14, 2012: I got quite a nice, light loaf of rye bread from this recipe. I made the bread by hand, not using a machine. I'd like to give 5 stars, but, I lost track of how much bread flour I used. I measured everything else, and followed the recipe's quantities, other than increasing the caraway seeds a bit. I don't really need to measure flour when I make bread by hand, so just used enough to get a nice dough. There do seem to be some dissatisfied reviewers of this recipe, and, since I didn't follow it exactly, I'm not going to leave a star rating. BTW, the recipe yielded 680 grams of dough for me, very nearly 1 1/2 pounds. If I have a chance, I will try this again, measuring the flour carefully, and rewrite my review. Thank you for the lovely loaf of bread.
This bread was HARD and didn't rise hardly at all. I even added gluten flour to hlep with the rising and it didn't make a difference. Will not make this again.
I had to put this dough through my bread machine twice as the first time it was too dry. I added just under 1/4 cup water. The dough is a rather stodgy one and so I put it in my Tupperware silicon kugelhopf mould to make small snack size slices which would be perfect for appetisers. This worked well. The taste is reasonable.
