Whilst this loaf isn't as dense as some rye breads, its definitely not as light as normal bread. It goes well with soups, but is equally good for sandwiches!
- 400 g strong plain brown flour
- 175 g rye flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon black treacle or 1 tablespoon molasses
- 300 ml warm milk
- Mix the flours, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the treacle and enough milk to form a soft dough.
- Turn the dough out onto the surface and knead well for about 10 minutes.
- Put the dough back into the bowl, cover and leave to rise until doubled in size (1-2 hours).
- Knock back the dough onto the surface and knead again briefly. Shape and place in a greased loaf tin. Cover and leave to rise again for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and bake for about 35 minutes, or until the bread is risen, lightly browned and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
GREAT RYE BREAD! Loved the looks, the smell, & especially the taste ~ Couldn't be better, in my opinion! Right from the oven & just slightly cooled, I devoured a quarter of it with some honey butter, & the rest of the loaf won't last very long, I'm sure! This recipe is definitely on my list of make-again-soon breads! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
I don't know what happened but my bread did not rise at all. It had a good flavor though. I'll have to try it again.
