My brother lives in a part of the country that does not recognize rye bread - not at all! So I've been searching for an easy rye bread recipe, and ran across this one, from the Fleischman Yeast company. Batter breads are an easy introduction to yeast breads for beginning bakers. Any kind of rye flour can be used - light, medium, pumpernickel . Sunflower seeds or other seeds can be substituted for the caraway. Batter breads tend to be softer than more traditional recipe breads so that your slices will be a bit thicker.The recipe originally called for 2 tsp salt, which I've reduced to 1 1/2 tsp.
