Rye Batter Bread

Recipe by duonyte
READY IN: 2hrs 10mins




  • Place 1/4 cup of the warm water in a large bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it, stirring to dissolve.
  • Add the remaining water, honey, and butter.
  • Slowly stir in the rye flour and 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour, blending well.
  • Stir in the remaining flour, salt and the caraway seeds, to make a stiff batter. Cover and let rest 20 minutes.
  • Stir down the batter and pour into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Cover and let stand in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Bake in a 350 deg oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until done. Turn out and cool on a wire rack.
  • Note: The batter should be stiff - like a kuchen or other cake batter. It should not be so stiff that you could imagine kneading it, nor as thin as pancake batter.
