"An aromatic rye bread with a hint of orange and honey. A friend gave me a loaf of this bread as a hostess gift and was thoughtful enough to pass along the recipe." — GINGER P

This rye is moist and stays moist and soft past the first day. I added extra caraway because I love it, plus about a teaspoon of fennel as well. The extra caraway and fennel added flavor without overpowering the taste of rye.
This is a delicious and versitile recipe. It rises amazingly, and makes a moist, fluffy bread for the amount of rye flour it contains. I've also tried varying the amount of sugar and using different flours in addition to the rye; it always turns out great!!
It works well w/whole wheat and brown suger (we don't use white flour); in fact we love it so much I make it weekly for our sandwich bread! Interestingly, I tried to halve the recipe and still get two 9x5's!
I used molasses in place of the sugar, and added extra caraway as others have suggested. This is a great bread. Making 1/3 the recipe yielded a huge free formed loaf!
This is a nice rye bread. Very similar to what my Swedish Grandma used to make. Nice and moist and very flavorful. The one change I made was to use ground caraway instead of the whole seeds. It brought out the caraway flavor better.
Pretty good. A dense, hearty rye that is a bit sweet--not surprisingly, with the amount of sugar and honey. I think I'd prefer just honey, though. I made a 1/3 of the recipe and was able to make 2 small loaves. My pans are 8x5 as opposed to a 9x5 loaf pan, so I can typically make smaller loaves with them. However, I could've let it rise longer for a larger loaf. I don't really taste the orange, so I'd add more orange zest or use some oj next time. All in all, this is a nice rye. Thanks for the recipe.
This bread is just what I was looking for. Very flavorful and a wonderful lighter texture. I'll be making this again and again.
