Quick and Easy Light Rye Bread

Jean's picture

For those with bread machines, I've been messing about with an easy Moomie-style rye bread and this latest version my DH thinks is great. If you make it with a stand mixer or by hand you need to do the conventional first rise.

Rye Bread Moomie's Style

1 cup water
2 Tbs butter
1 egg
2 cups rye flour
1 1/4 cups bread flour
2 Tbs powdered milk
2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tb SAF instant yeast (scant)
1 Tb caraway seeds*

Add to bread machine in order given, *save caraway to add at beep.

Set machine to dough setting.

When cycle complete place in bread pan or shape into boule.

Let rise in warm place for 30- 45 minutes. This recipe doesn't have as much oven spring as Moomie's recipe does

Bake at 375° for 35 minutes. YUM

Next time I will try subbing some molasses for part of the sugar for a darker bread.

If you try this let me know what you think. Thanks.
