"This is a traditional Swedish rye bread. Be sure that the seeds you use for this bread are fresh. You may substitute rye flour for the whole wheat flour, however, it will affect the taste. I prefer whole wheat. Also, gluten, a very important ingredient in this recipe, may be found in most gourmet food stores or health food stores. Barley malt can be substituted for molasses. Enjoy!"

  1. Combine fennel seeds, cumin seeds, caraway seeds, cracked wheat, butter or margarine, molasses or barley malt, and orange zest in 1 1/3 cup of boiling water. Soak for 1 hour. (This pre-soaks the cracked wheat and pre-releases the other flavors.)
  2. Add seed mixture along with baking soda, whole wheat or rye flour, high-gluten bread flour, dry yeast, gluten, and buttermilk powder into the pan of a bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select the cycle for White Bread and the Light Crust setting. Start.

My grandmother use to bake this bread for Christmas...it was GREAT!!!

I've tried other recipes here and this is the best of the best. Makes for a very yummy whole grain type bread with everything you need for nutrition not to mention a great taste. Takes a little ...

besides the cumin which being Swedish one would never use Anise as all the others is the spice of choice. Use Rye flour if you can get it makes all the difference.

I also am Swedish, I elimated the cracked wheat and used whole wheat bread flour instead of the rye since Rye flour is impossible to get where I live. And I don't know where the "cumin" came in ...

I used coarsely chopped rye berries instead of the cracked wheat, and cooked the bread in a greased pie pan at 350 for 45 minutes. Wonderful flavor bread! Thanks for the recipe!
