Well I must admit to being a little nervous to make this recipe as I am NOT a bread maker. I followed the directions exactly, and used my Mom's bread machine as I don't have one! It turned out to be a beautiful bread! My Husband is from Winnipeg and he had his doubts as to whether this would turn out like what he calls "REAL" Winnipeg Rye. Well guess what? It is exactly like the Winnipeg Rye we are used to! No more buying this for me, I will make it every time now. Thanks so much for a new family favourite! Made for Aussie Swap :)
I love rye bread and this was no exception! I made a few SMALL changes to fit in with our menu and ingredients I had to hand. I used MAPLE SYRUP in place of the sugar and I also decided to make these into little rye bread rolls, for a steak sandwich that Malcolm and my dad were eating for lunch; the rest were used for a wonderful picnic we had at the bottom of the garden! Made for ZWT4 and very much enjoyed - I made no other changes! Thanks! FT:-)
I couldn't find cracked rye, but did find rolled rye, which look like rolled oats. I also subbed 1/3 cup of the bread flour with rye flour. The texture was a bit like cracked wheat bread. Rose nicely and tasted delicious. Went well with soup and should make good toast!
The texture was wonderful! I didn`t have the cracked meal using dark rye flour in place of it. I added caraway seeds. Thanks for a great bread!
THis was easy to make and had a nice mild flavor. Because I didn't have the rye meal in the pantry, I had to modify the recipe somewhat. I used 3 cups bread flour and remainder rye flour. That worked out fine, but I decided that my substitutions had altered the recipe a little too much to actually leave a rating. However, I loved the way the bread came out.
