I just started making bread & this was my first attempt at rye bread. I have to say this is a fairly easy recipe. The bread has a nice texture & it tastes good too. This recipe did make 2 9x5 loaves instead of 3.
I was sorely disappointed with this recipe. I've been looking for an "authentic" Eastern European rye bread, but this was definately not it. The loaf came out dry, fairly hard, and absolutely flavorless. I'd look elsewhere for a good rye load.
This recipe is great; use 4 cups of white flour not 8 cups; if someone actually did this, not much wonder it was dry; to make it more authentic double up on the caraway.....very nice!!!!!
I found this bread was quite easy to prepare, fantastically fragrant with a wonderful taste. Gorgeous with lashings of butter and plum powidel...yum
Recipe has to much flour and not enough liquid to make the bread. 4 C of flour may work but needed more liquid at that. I have it rising now. Bread came out to be 4" tall two loaves. Used 2 1/2 cups water and 1 1/2 cup butter milk and only 4 C bread flour, and 4 C rye flour. Tastes just fine. A little less rye flour will make it rise more. But it is fine as is.
This was a horrible waste of a lot of organic flour. When I added 4 cups of rye flour, it was so thick and heavy that I knew it was never going to work out. I was right. It never rose at all-total mess.
The recipe says to add an additional 8 cups bread flour and there is no way that much flour will work int he recipe. I had a hard time getting 4 cups of bread flour worked into the dough.
This is so easy to make !!!!! Ive made this many times ,continues to be our favorite .
