Caraway Rye Bread

Caraway Rye Bread

"IT WAS probably 45 years ago when the thrashers came to dinner at our house and Mother served this bread. Today, every time I bake it, I get nostalgic for those days. My parents were emigrants from Czechoslovakia and couldn't speak English very well. The thrashers hardly talked anyway - they were too busy enjoying Mother's delicious food! -Millie Feather, Baroda, Michigan"

  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add brown sugar, caraway, oil, salt and remaining water; mix well. Stir in rye flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; divide in half. Shape each half into a ball; place in two greased 8-in. round cake pans. Flatten balls to a 6-in. diameter. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

The flavor was very nice. But, the second rise wouldn't rise fully' it only went halfway to my bread pans.

This bread is delicious! I was out of brown sugar... I wish I had molasses to sub, but honey had to do... still, it's very moist. I baked it in bread pans. Will make again - so far my favorite r...

Millie Feather- Bread genius! This was way better than I thought it would be. I doubled the caraway, but that was the only change. I baked half in a bread loaf pan and one in a round loaf, they ...

My husband and I both liked this one. The only change I would make in the future is adding extra caraway seed. Very moist. Hubby wants it in a sandwich for lunch tomorrow.

Having read the reviews, I made one change with the caraway seeds. I added 1 TBSP of finely ground caraway seeds (used a coffee grinder) and also added 1/2 TBSP of whole caraway seeds to the do...

This is the first rye bread I've baked and am I happy I chose this recipe. It was very easy to make and the result is fantastic: very light and subtly flavorful. I started the kneading process ...

I created this dough with my breadmaker. I put the wet ingredients on the bottom and topped with sugar, salt, the flours and topped with the caraway seeds and yeast. I selected the dough cycle a...

This is why I learned to make bread. Dense, flavorful with a chewy crust this is bakery quality bread. The only thing I changed was to add more caraway seed. Thanks for an excellent recipe.

This was the first bread I ever made and it came out great. Though I didn't have any round baking pans, I just put the dough into some metal bowls and.. ta da! Tasted so good and made my house...
