    Mimi Bobeck's Note:

    Oh my goodness - I'm reading some of these reviews and I just realised that Americans and British are used to that fluffy white bread - this is a GERMAN recipe - it IS A DENSE BREAD - THIS IS NOT A LIGHT & FLUFFY BREAD Please don't expect this to come out tasting like "Wonder bread" with Rye flavor. This is a recipe for TRUE, AUTHENTIC Rye bread - it's going to taste different from what you buy packaged in the store that was mass produced in a factory, please remember that. Just wanted to let everyone know before you invest money and time into this what to expect. Thanks!

      Awesome! The only changes I made were adding 1 TBS of caraway seed and swapping the sugar for slightly less honey, which is all I had on hand. Wonderful! I don't like fluffy, cloud-like bread. Save that texture for white breads and rolls. When I want rye or whole grain, I want hearty. This bread perfectly fits the bill. My husband loves rye, so I make several different versions to change it up. This is the first rye I've made that I personally love and would probably take even over my favorite whole wheat. It also responded perfectly during prep--I didn't have to cross my fingers and hope the dough would raise properly. Thanks for posting such a great recipe!

      Delicious! This makes a dense, moist, light tasting rye bread. It doesn't rise very high, but the flavor is wonderful. I made this in my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer and it worked out perfectly. The only change I made was to add some caraway seed, which I feel is a "must" for rye bread. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up! Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper.

      This bread didn't work out for me. It didn't rise very well and was quite dense. Flavor was good, perhaps I just need to play around with the recipe a bit. I will update with higher stars on my next try if it works out better.
