This is a good basic bread machine recipe for rye bread. I don't remember where I got it, but it's one I make all the time.

This was my first attempt at bread machining- DELICIOUS. The only thing I did differently was not adding caraway seeds.

Great bread. Made it twice no caraway though. We are into rye so the first time used 1-3/4 rye and 2 of bread flour. Worked out very well. The second time used wheat flour instead of bread and it came out great. Baked both in the bread machine on medium crust. Next time will try second combination on dark crust. Thank you for an excellent recipe.

Yes, it is superb! Made exactly as written, including the caraway. I don't usually finish my loaves in the machine, but didn't have time to finish by hand today, so let machine do it all. Loaf rose high and had a great crust and soft interior. Will be making this again! Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
