Wow, delicious Rye Bread, great flavor, Good texture & a nice big loaf. Rye bread is DH's favorite bread. He loves it toasted. Bev, Thank you sooooo very much for posting the recipe.
By far, the best rye bread recipe I've ever made! Texture was wondeful. It is just delicious. I didn't have molasses so I just used honey. It came out wonderful!! Thanks for sharing.
I made the dough in my Kitchenaide, baked as a big fat baguette for 25 minutes at 350. I bake bread all the time and this is about the best bread I've ever made. Fabulous. Used about 2 T olive oil in place of the butter, and 4 t. caraway. Added bread flour last, just until it held together. Other than than, followed recipe to a T. Really, really wonderful stuff.
