Caraway Rye

Recipe by pammyowl
READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Blend all ingredients together, knead for 7-10minutes, by hand or machine. Your dough should be smooth and a bit sticky,as that is the nature of rye bread dough.
  • Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth or lightly oiled (I use cooking spray) cling film. Let rise until doubled, about an hour, maybe longer depending on the room temperature
  • Gently deflate, and form as you like. Free form or in a bread pan. I bake it free form, on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 375, and let the bread rise until it is almost doubled.
  • Slash with a sharp exacto , a lame or a serrated knife. Every method works, but I prefer an exacto.
  • Spritz with water and place in the hot oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, turn the pan for even browning and bake for 15 minutes more, or until the internal temperature is 190 or sounds hollow when tapped.
  • * Or you can throw all the ingredients in a bread machine set on the dough cycle, let rise in the machine and then continue with above instructions.
