Rye Swirl Bread

Rye Swirl Bread created by missy h.

I'm not a huge fan of strong-flavored rye bread, but this rye-white combination makes a delightful, beautiful loaf. I found this on a package of Fleischmann's yeast. Prep time includes rising time.

Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 12 - 5 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 12 teaspoons yeast (2 pkgs)
  • 1 12 teaspoons salt
  • 1 14 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 cups medium rye flour

directions

  • In a large bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups white flour, sugar, yeast and salt.
  • Heat water, milk and butter till very warm.
  • Add to dry ingredients and beat 2 minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • Beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  • Remove half of the batter to a separate bowl.
  • Into one bowl, stir enough white flour to make a soft dough.
  • Into the second bowl, stir molasses and enough rye flour to make a soft dough.
  • Separately knead each dough till smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Cover each dough, let rest 10-20 minutes.
  • Divide each dough in half; roll each into a 7 x 14 inch rectangle.
  • Place one dark rectangle on top of each white rectangle.
  • Roll up tightly, jelly-roll fasion; pinch seams to seal.
  • Place loaves, seam side down, in two greased loaf pans (I used my baking stone).
  • Cover, let rise 60 minutes (less if using rapid rise yeast).
  • Bake at 375 for 25-35 minutes or till done.
  • Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

    Awesome! Used 2 tbs cocoa however wasn't dark enough - added brown food color as well. Didn't have bread flour so I used 3 tsp yeast. Normally w/ instant yeast I get a faster rise than recipe states but not this time! It took the time to rise as recipe states.

    This is a beautiful two loves and they are being rapidly consumed (alas!) by DH and I. These are pretty and I was really surprised how splitting the doughs didn't add _that much_ extra effort, though it certainly is more effort that throwing all ingredients in a bread machine. But, to be honest, this just didn't have enough rye flavor for me. I cannot conscience knocking off stars for that but if you are looking for a flavorful rye loaf, this might not be it. I even put a bit of caraway in it and it's still just not very rye-ey except when you get a bit of caraway.
