Beautiful moist, almost sweet, bread that turns out fantastic from the bread maker. I altered it a bit because I didn't have the right ingredients on hand: increase onion to 1 1/2 Tbsp, decrease caraway to 1 Tbsp, replaced the cottage cheese with ricotta, heated 1/4 water and seeped the seeds a few minutes before adding remainder of liquid ingredients. I can't wait to try it with dill!

Made in my breadmaker with spectacular results! As I love dill and caraway seeds, I used both. I also added a tablespoon of mixed seeds for extra crunch. Rose very high and was crisp on the outside and very moist on the inside - a wonderful bread - thanks for posting! Made for ZWT3. FT:-)
